Best Answer

Most of the leading Nazis had a Horror of Communism that made even Joseph McCarthy look tame, and in fact the Axis was originally a specifically anti-Communist alliance. As for the Japanese, they were classified officially as "honorary Aryans". Their devotion to fighting for the Emperor was highly regarded by the Nazis and the SS were supposed to study them (at a very simple level). Germany's allies in WW2 included Hungarians, Romanians, Bulgarians, Croats and Bosnians - none of whom were "Aryans". The Nazis took their anti-Semitism seriously, but apart from that many of them tended to ignore their racial theories when it suited them. Perhaps some of them (such as Goering) even knew it was bunk.

Why did Italy surrender to the Allies?

The Italians never wanted to be allied with German Nazis. It was their leader, Mussolini, who wanted to ally himself with the Nazis. The Italians did not want to fight with the Nazis but they knew they would be killed by the Nazis if they did not fight for them. When the Americans, Brits and others arrived the Italians surrendered and let the Allied leaders know the Italians were on the Allied Forces side. The Italian populace was able to take down Mussolini and defeat the Nazis with the help of the Allied Forces.

He did not however agree with the the killing of the Jews. He thought he could expand the Italian Empire with the aid of the Nazis. He started by invading the nation of Abyssinia now known as Ethiopia. The Nazis did help him and he had his military help the Nazis. The Nazis came to Italy and basically took over. They used their Nazi bully tactics on the Italians. The Italians were not afraid to resist or fight back.

Eventually, the Italians were able to kill Mussolini and work with the Allied Forces.
