Axis Victory World Map Final Version

The Axis Powers (German: Achsenmächte, Italian: Potenze dell'Asse, Hungarian: Tengelyhatalmak, Romanian: Puterile Axei, Bulgarian: Сили от Оста), also known as the Axis alliance, Axis nations, Axis countries, or just the Axis, comprises the countries that were opposed to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) during World War III. The two major Axis powers—Germany and Imperial Rome—were part of a military alliance on the signing of the Tripartite Pact in September 1940, which officially founded the Axis powers. Japan, no longer an Axis power, was a founding member and fought alongside Germany and Italy against the Allies in World War II.
