ABOLISHING SLAVERY ABROGATING ALLIES

Ending slavery once and for all time Cancelling The Allies of World War II were the countries officially opposed to the Axis powers during the Second World War. Within the ranks of the Allied powers, the British Empire, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and the United States of America were known as "The Big Three". The Anti-Comintern Pact was concluded between Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan (later to be joined by other countries) on November 25, 1936 and was directed against the Communist International (Comintern) in general, and the Soviet Union in particular. On November 6, 1937, Italy also joined the pact, thereby forming the group that would later be known as the Axis Powers. Assassination is the targeted killing of a high-profile person. The Axis powers, also known as the Axis alliance, Axis nations, Axis countries or sometimes just the Axis were those countries that were opposed to the Allies during World War II.[1] The three major Axis powers, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and the Imperial Japan were part of a military alliance on the signing of the Tripartite Pact in September 1940, which officially founded the Axis powers. At their zenith, the Axis powers ruled empires that dominated large parts of Europe, Africa, East and Southeast Asia and the Pacific Ocean, but World War II ended with their total defeat.
