One of the last Portuguese Supermarine Spitfire IX

After the Battle of Belgium, and the using of chemical gas started by Germany in Europe (also by the end of the Pacific War), Portugal declared war on Germany and alongeside Brazilian troops, send troops to Norway, to supplement the Allies in the Scadinaviann campaign. As Portugal already operated Spitfires (both Mk.I and Vc), it's small aerial contribution to the war was in the form of two squadrons of Mk.IX (in terms of Portuguese, they were formed in Flights instead of Squadrons), that joined the war just one week prior to the full liberation of Norway. Therefore after, they operated from Norwegian bases in the same way as other allied fighter squadrons operated against the Luftwaffe. Postwar, all fighters were bought and replaced both Hawker Hurricanes and Spitfires Mk.I that Portugal still operated, until 1950, when themselves were replaced by Hawker Tempest's.

One of the Thunderbolts based in near Dili, East Timor, 1956

Shortly after MacArthur left the US Office, and the US started it's policy of communism containment in Asia/Pacific, the Portuguese Estado Novo under Salazar decided to reinforce East Timor from possible Indonesian intervention (something that was they started to do against the British in Malaysia and the Dutch in West Papua). Among the reinforcments were two Flights of F-47 Thunderbolts (as they were replaced in Portuguese mainland by F-84 Thunderjets).

F-84 Thunderjet in based in Sweden during Operation Nyenskans, 1954

While the Finns began evacuation from their nation, Sweden and it's UN Allies began to protect them as most as possible. Among the Allied reinforcments were the Portuguese, sending two flights of F-84 Thunderjets for ground support against the Soviets, while the more advanced jets of Sweden, American and British-built projected their aerial superiority.

Harold Marshall, the famous Canadian undead hunter. Marshall fought in the dead zones of Germany, the Polish-Soviet border, and Western Europe as it fell to hordes of undead. He was requested by the U.S. War Department to help the U.S. Army clear an infestation of undead in Dallas, Texas on April 17, 1944. Joining a group of zombie hunters, Marshall would soon be deployed to the USSR to help Soviet partisans combat the undead, where he would meet the famous Soviet sniper Vasily Zaytsev. Marshall would take part in the liberation of Europe and would conduct a raid on infested Paris on his own.

Marshall would die heroically in the Battle of Champigny-Sur-Marne when his team was ambushed by a horde larger than expected. Marshall and his men fought a great last stand and killed themselves with explosives in order not to be torn apart by the undead.

Note: I see Harold Marshall as a mix between the real-life Leo Major (the Canadian who liberated a town on his own) and BJ Blaskowicz, hence I used BJ as the pic.

Vasily Zaytsev, the Red Army's best sniper. Zaytsev was a veteran of the Battle of Stalingrad, killing hundreds of German soldiers and the undead as they showed up. He also fought in the Siege of Leningrad and the Fall of Moscow, making the undead pay for every inch of Soviet territory they gathered. As Zaytsev and his men retreated inwards to some safe-zones, he was able to teach ordinary Soviet citizens how to score headshots on the undead. Zaytsev would lead a colony of survivors in a prison just near the town of Tambov. The prison had guard towers where snipers trained by Zaytsev would shoot any undead that got too close. In 1944, the Canadian undead hunter Harold Marshall parachuted near Tambov and linked up with Zaytsev's prison colony and provided Western supplies and equipment.

Zaytsev is one of the well-known undead hunters in the USSR. The others included Ivan Sodorenko, Fyodor Okhlopkov, and female snipers such as Roza Shanina and Tanya Baramzina.

J. Robert Oppenheimer, the American theoretical physicists that innovated incendiary bullets for automatic weapons in case of horde attacks. The model was soon exported to both Axis and Allies alike. The BAR, Thompson, M1917 Browning, M1919 Browning, and M2 heavy machine gun were soon modified to accept these flame bullets. The Sten, Owen gun, Bren, Lewis gun, the PPSh-41, PPS-43, the DP-28, along with German and Japanese weapons such as the MP-38, MP-40, MG-34, MG-42, Type 100, Type 97, Type 99, Type 11, and Type 92 followed suit.

The U.S. Army lands in Normandy on June 18, 1944 as part of the reclamation of Europe from the undead. Simultaneous landings occurred in the western coast of France alongside with the Canadians, the British, and the Irish while a southern landing was made with the Americans, the Commonwealth forces, and remnants of the French government-in-exile which retreated to Algeria. This would soon start the biggest human offensive against the undead which has plagued much of the Old World at this point.

God the first pic with the guardsman's look on his face with his mouth agape is just so fundamentally moving to me. Also, do you know the origin for the pic of the troops with gas masks? Ive seen it a lot and I wonder what its backstory is.

The origin of the Japanese troops in the gas masks is during the Battle of Shanghai in 1937. I couldn't find a better pic of IJA personnel in gas masks and this one is the most iconic so I depicted it as if the IJA were fighting hordes of zombies in mainland China. The fact they are wearing proto versions of CRBN gears gives a backstory that at least the Japanese saw the threat of zombies seriously, albeit just making sure the virus isn't airborne.

A Filipino survivor with a bolo, a popular farming tool and melee weapon that became a symbol of resistance against the Japanese occupation. The child next to him also has one on his hip. When the undead started appearing in the Philippines brought from Japanese soldiers bitten from China, the Filipinos and USAFFE remnant were faced with ammunition problems, forcing whatever weapons coming from captured Japanese rifles to improvised gunsmiths. Since the undead were attracted to noise, Filipino locals and resistance fighters have used traditional weapons such as the kris, the kampilan, the bolo, spears, and bow-and-arrows to silently take out the undead without attracting others nearby.
