Germany and Italy were honoring the non-aggression pact that they had signed with Japan .


Germany and Italy declared war on the US on Dec. 11, 1941 after the US declared war on Japan because of the bombing of Pearl Harbor on the 7th. The United States never did declare war on Germany/Italy.


After the US declared war on Japan because of Pearl Harbor Germany/Italy in turn declared war on the US.


The day after Pearl Harbor the US declared war on Japan and 3 days later Italy and Germany declared war on the US. The Germany and Japan had a pact that if war was declared on one of them they would in turn declare war.


They were allied to Japan. After we were attacked at Pearl harbor we Declared War on Japan. The other Axis Powers, i.e., Germany and Italy, decalred war on us in turn.


The US did not declare war on Germany and Italy, although it would have been justifiable to do so since they had a formal alliance with Japan. The US declared war on Japan. A few days later, Germany and Italy declared war on the US. The above answer is missing an important factor in all this: America was the only country Germany declared war on! Germany, Italy and Japan formed the Axis, and as Germany was allied with Japan it was only natural that as soon as America declared war on Japan, Germany would declare war on America. The same can be seen in action against Germany. France and England were allied with Poland. As soon as Germany invaded Poland England and France Declared war on Germany.


Germany, Italy and the other minor Axis nations. The only nation the US did declare war on was Japan, the day after Japan attacked the US Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. Three days after the US declared war on Japan, Germany and Italy declared war against the US. That was enough to bring about a state of war between the US and Germany and Italy. There was no need for Congress to declare war back.


Japan, Germany, and Italy formed the Axis Powers in World War II, therefore, due to their alliance, a declaration of war against one was perceived as a declaration against all. Germany and Italy formalized this by declaring war on the United States in retaliation for their declaration of war on Japan.


As allies to Japan, Germany and Italy declared war on the US when the US declared war on Japan the day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.


Because the United States declared war on Japan after Pearl Harbor.


The US did NOT declare war on either Germany or Italy. The US declared war on Japan, following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. President Roosevelt did not ask congress to declare war on either Germany or Italy when he asked for a declaration of war against Japan the day after Pearl Harbor, December 8, 1941. Germany and Italy were allies of Japan in "the Axis" (the "Rome-Berlin-Tokyo Axis"). Under the terms of the alliance agreement Germany was obligated to go to war as an ally of Japan IF Japan was attacked, but NOT if Japan did the attacking. Nevertheless on December 11, Germany declared war on the US, followed a few hours later by Italy's declaration of war against the US. This was the only time during WWII that Germany actually declared war on another nation. Usually, they just invaded your country and let you figure out that you were at war.


France never declared war on the US. it was part of the allies. Germany, Italy & Japan declared war in 1941-1942 on the US


America didn't declare war on Germany and Italy, it was the other way round. As part of the Axis Pact, once war was declared between the empire of Japan and the United States, Germany and Italy declared war on America on the 11th of December 1941, 4 days after the attack on Pearl Harbour.


U.S. never declared war on Germany U.S. declared war on Japan after the attack on Pearl Harbor then Germany and Italy declared war on the U.S. (Oh, Snap!)


After Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt requested and received a declaration of war on Japan. He did not request to declare war on Germany or Italy. However, they saved him the trouble by declaring war on the US a few days later.


Japan attacked us on pearl harbor under orders from Germany, and We declared War on japan and Germany;


They were part of an alliance between Germany, Italy and Japan. When we declared war on Germany over their refusal to pull out of Poland, Italy joined in to support their allies, and help themselves to bits of the Mediterranean that they had designs upon.


Mainly Pearl Harbor because Japan was an ally of Germany. After Pearl Harbor was bombed the US declard war on Japan and because they were allies Germany and Italy see it fit to declare war on the US.


December 7th 1942. After the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan. The US declared war on Japan. Japan being part of the Axis powers consisting of Germany and Italy. The US declared war on them as well.


Japan, bro. Japan declared war on America not Germany. Canada declared war on Germany on the 10th of September.


The United States was bombed by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor which cause a declaration of war but Germany had an alliance with Japan and it had forced the United States to declare war on Germany too. Then Germany had an alliance with Italy which cause the United States to declare war on yet another country. Then the world was at war and therefore World War 2 started.


Quite the opposite, the US did not declare war on Germany, but Germany declared war on them. They did this to honor their alliance with Japan after the Pearl Harbor attacks.


After the U.S. declared war on Japan, Germany declared war on the U.S.


Japan didn't invade Germany. During World War II, Japan actually joined Germany. It was part of the Axis which included Germany, Italy and Japan. After the United States declared war on Japan, Italy and Germany, as Japan's allies, declared war on the United States.
