Politics & History : Allies of Great Britain


Hello, my name is Arielle Reid, in Budapest,
Hungary, and I will explain to you today the allies of Great Britain. So we’re looking
at two particular time periods. World War one and World War two. The allies of Great
Britain, or the British empire was known then in World War one were primarily France and
Russia. But as the European continent raced to ward war, a bunch of bilateral agreements
were both made and broken, and most of the continent was polarized between the Triple
Entente powers, and the Triple Alliance. That was comprised of the Austra-Hungarian empire,
and the new states of Italy and Germany. Now, in World War two, the allies of Great Britain
were the USSR, and the United States of America. With China as the fourth policeman. Now, Great
Britain, the US, and the USSR, were known as the big three. And they were also, and
their coalition was known as the Allied Forces. Now, once again, the Allied Forces were made
up of many, many more countries, but these are the primary allies. They fought in World
War two against the axis powers. So the allies were combating axis expansion. Comprised of
Germany, Japan, and Italy.
