In WW2, the US fought on two major fronts, the Pacific and the European fronts. The European front can be further divided into Europe proper and North Africa where the Americans faced off briefly with the Vichy French. The Pacific front stretched for thousands of miles. In Europe, the Americans' main thrust was through France and Italy.

In the European Theater, the two major fronts of World War II were the Western Front (in 1944-1945) and the Eastern Front (1941-1945). Axis and Allied forces also clashed in North Africa and then in Italy, but this was considered by many to be a front of minor importance. In the Pacific Theater, battles raged far and wide between Japan and the Allies, on both land and sea.

Yes, the two fronts were the European theater in which troops were sent to fight Nazi Germany and the Axis powers in Europe. The second front was the Pacific theater in which U.S. troops fought the Japanese an ally of Nazi Germany and a member of the Axis powers in Japan/Pacific Islands.

Hitler declared war on the US, thereby bringing the US to the war in Europe. After December 1, 1941, the US Congress declared war on Japan.

That depends on the reference point, as both Germany and the United States were fighting on two fronts during the war. The Germans would say the United States fought on the Western front. The United States fought on the European front and the Pacific front.

During WW 2, the United States and other allies fought on a number of 'fronts': North Africa, Italy, Normandy and so forth.

The two theaters of war were the European war against the Axis powers, and the Pacific war against Japan.

Has the us ever won a war in a foreign country while a republican president was in office?

The first Republican president was Abraham Lincoln. During his tenure, the Civil War was fought and won -- however, this was not a war in a foreign country. Since Lincoln, we have fought several other wars. The Spanish American war of 1898 was fought and won while Democratic president Grover Cleveland was in office. Democrat Woodrow Wilson was in office when the United States and other Entente powers won World War I. World War II was fought and won by two Democratic Presidents -- Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman. The Korean War was fought under the tenure of Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower, but there is some dispute about whether that war was actually "won" and even if it is officially ended. The Vietnam War was fought under the oversight of Presidents Eisenhower (R), Kennedy (D), Johnson (D), Nixon (R) and Ford (R). It is widely accepted that this is also not a conflict that the United States "won". Now we come to perhaps your best bet of a Republican war that was "won" while the Republican was in office -- the first Persian Gulf War, fought during the administration of Republican George HW Bush.
