After the French army personally rectified and reformed by the FPP (French Popular Party), the French army was very different from before. It had a positive and fanatical fascist belief, renovated weapons, uniforms and vehicles, and experienced harsh and strict training and professional military education, as well as the industrialization of metropolitan France and colonies and the improvement of the construction of the industrial system. With continuous supply and military support, these armies once again showed the strongest European lion spirit of the Napoleon era.

The North African battlefield is not only the German-Italian coalition, but also the French colonial army and the French Expeditionary Force to assist and beat the Commonwealth army. They showed an extremely fierce, brave and resolute side in the battle. This is what a German commander evaluates the French soldiers in the North African battlefield:Ich dachte, dass die französische Armee auf dem Schlachtfeld verwundbar sein würde, aber in der Tat untergräbt sie mein vorheriges Verständnis und meine Sicht auf die französische Armee. Die mutigste und grausamste Seite, die dieses französische Volk auf dem Schlachtfeld zeigt, selbst ich muss beklagen, dass Frankreich und sein Volk in der Vergangenheit nicht mehr die schwachen Patienten waren.

Decisive Darkness: What if Japan hadn't surrendered in 1945? by @The_Red​

George Linclon Rockwell (March 9 1918 - November 16 1945)

Among the USN pilots killed in X-Day was George Linclon Rockwell. Born in Illinois, son of vaudeville comedians and actors, and was a Brown University student before dropping out and joining the United States Navy. Not very much is know about it's political views (althought there were mentions that we praised the National Socialist movement in Germany)
Initially a photo reconnaissance and transport pilot, it made a crash course program for flying the F6F-5P Hellcat due to the losses in the Typhoon Louise. On X-Day, this crash course prove valuable, when we shoot down three kamikaze aircrafts, but after the third aircraft, he was itself shoot down by a N1K2-J "George" of the 343rd Air Group (ironically, by the last surviving pilot and aircraft of the group at that day).

First Austrians soldiers arriving in north of Italy, 1938

Shortly after the Anschluss, Kurt Schuschnigg (the leader of the Federal State of Austria before it was dissolved) formed a government-in-exile in Rome, while a "Austrian Division" as formed with Austrian soldiers that had withdrawn to Italy, latter augmented with both Austrian and German Jewish men that wanted to liberate their homeland against the tyrannic Nazi regime.
While their were unable to contain the initial pushes of the Wehrmacht, they managed to hold them in the Arno River by December 1940, and, thanks with Lend-Lease provided by the US, pushed the Germans back in September/October 1943 (earlier attempts in early 1942 failed), and they were the first unit to both cross the Italian/Austrian border and reaching Vienna in June 1944.
After the war in Europe, the Italian occupied the entirerity of Austria, while the US-UK-French-USSR occupied Germany, and the Federal State of Austria was once again restored (as a puppet state of Italy), and the Austrian Division was disbanded, and reorganized into the Austrian Armed Forces.

Skink AA, 20mm Quad - prior to it's shipment to Europe, January 1945

Due to a increase of the Luftwaffe presence in 1944/45 against the Western Allies (mostly with the jet Arado Ar-234), both the US, Britain and Canada responded with their own mobile self-propelled anti-aircraft tanks to responde with the increase threat (ironically in a same fashion the Germans react with the allies - in this list is excluded the M13/16 MGMC was it as not a tank):
  • US: M19 MGMC (heavily modified M24 Chaffee);
  • UK: Crusader III, AA Mk.I (single 40mm Bofors) and Mk.II/III (twin 20mm Oerlikons)
  • Canada: Skink AA, 20mm Quad

The latest British-German Legion in Sussex, 1948

As the Moscow Pact forces defeated the last Germans (and foreign volunteers) forces in the western side of the Rhine, in May of 1946, massive columns of refugees, with some deserting military units, began to cross the border of the Benelux and France, to escape possible death and misery coming.
With the end of the war in Europe, these refugees began to join some of germans communities already existing in the area prior to 1939, plus several of the former military personel began to join either the French Foreign Legions, the Royal Netherlands East Indies Army (currently fighting the Indonesian War of Independence) or joining the new forces-in-exile in the British forces.

333rd Field Artillery Battalion preparing to fire the M1 155mm howitzer in Burma, mid-1945

With the ceasefire signed in August 1944 between the Western Powers and the Axis, most of the US forces began to be send back to the US to be prepared for operations in the Pacific against Japan (a selective few were kept for occupation in Austria and others to help rebuilding the devastation caused in the war). Most of the Afro-Americans units destination was a diferent theather: South East Asia.
While most of the Armed Forces brass wanted to either disband or keep it as a dead-end training unit, political pressure (from Roosevelt "War on all Fronts" policy), it was decided that instead, they would be send to Burma, and were to be integrated in the British Army (including later accepting some British equipment to ease logistics).
"Ironically", on the same month that they arrived in the frontline (late 1944), the all-white units were pull out for use in the campaign and send to the Pacific campaign.
The following afro-american units were send to Burma:
  • 477th Composite Group/4th Air Commando Group - 616th Bomber Squadron (B-25D/H Mitchell), 617th Liason Squadron (Piper L-4 Cub and UC-61A Argus/L-5E Sentinels and UC-64A Norsmen), 618th and 619th Fighter Squadron (P-50K/F-16C and D Spitfires) and 619th Transport Squadron (C-47A/B Skytrain)
  • 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion
  • 372nd Infantry Regiment
  • 614th and 669th Tank Destroyer Battalion
  • USS PC-1264
  • 333rd, 777th and 993rd Field Artillery Battalion
  • 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion
  • 452nd Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion
Outside of South East Asia, the closest the Afro-American units went to Japan were used in the Okinawa campaign, and remained in the area until V-J.

Sidenote: Two other USN served in the Indian Ocean at the same time:
  • USS Block Island - replaced temporarily HMS Begum due to the later been damaged by uncharted rocks; returned to the Pacific as Begum returns to service
  • USS Bridgeport (AD-10) - send for the sole purpose of repairing the Lend-Lease warships present in the campaign

Several Panzer I (including a Breda modified one) after crossing the Portuguese border, late 1938

With the defeat of the Nationalist forces in the SCW, Portugal (under Salazar Estado Novo) began to panic, as now a socialist nation borders their entirety of the border. Therefore, Portugal pressed into service all Nationalist equipment that crossed their border and integrated into their own armed forces, plus formed a brigade with some of the former rebels that crossed the border. Alongeside, Portugal began to buy as much military equipment as possible (it's Army Aviation became the biggest operator of the Heinkel He-112 outside of Axis operators).

Sidenote: Taking advantage of the final days of the war, Portugal occupied the "disputed areas" Olivença.
