Before WWI Germany made the triple-alliance with Italy and Austria-Hungary.

Bulgaria and the Ottoman empire joined the alliance, against the Entente with UK, France and Russia. Other countries joined the Entente too.

When Italy swapped sides in 1915, the remainder of the war alliance was called the central powers.

In WWII the term "the allies" was used about those fighting with the UK against the Axis powers. The Axis was Germany, Italy and Japan, with their collaborators like Hungary, Romania, Soviet (until 1941), Bulgaria etc. Italy left the Axis when Mussolini's rule was overthrown. Non-occupied France got a nazi-friendly regime in Vichy and occupied states often had a collaborating government in Europe and Asia. Due to the war against Soviet Union and their switch to the allied side, made that Finland for some time fought on the Axis side, then against the Axis again driving out German troops from Finland.

Spain, Sweden and South American countries in particular, were officially neutral in WWII but acted in different ways that helped Germany, as large parts of the population had a friendly attitude, as it in fact was in most countries in the beginning.

How did the Battle of Stalingrad contribute to the allies victory in ww2?

The victory over the Germans at the battle for Stalingrad on the Eastern Front meant that the Germans were effectively fighting a two-front war . This meant that the Germans were forced to divide the bulk of their resources to fight both the Russians on the Eastern Front as well as the Allies on the Western Front . The Allies knew that complete victory over the Germans was then inevitable for had the Germans defeated the Russians then the Germans would then be able to commit their full resources to thwart any effort on the part of the Allies to invade and defeat the Germans who no longer had two fronts to fight on in the war . The Russian victory at Stalingrad meant that the Russians could indeed defeat German efforts and the Allies were encouraged by this who were then committed to the eventual defeat of Germany now having confidence that their Russian allies were capable of turning the tide of war against the Germans .
