    The ori­gins of the Al­lied pow­ers stem from the Al­lies of World War I and co­op­er­a­tion of the vic­to­ri­ous pow­ers at the Paris Peace Con­fer­ence, 1919. Ger­many re­sented sign­ing Treaty of Ver­sailles. The new Weimar Re­pub­lic's le­git­i­macy be­came shaken. How­ever, the 1920s were peace­ful. With the Stock Mar­ket Crash of 1929 and the en­su­ing Great De­pres­sion, po­lit­i­cal un­rest in Eu­rope soared in­clud­ing the rise in sup­port of re­van­chist na­tion­al­ists in Ger­many who blamed the sever­ity of the eco­nomic cri­sis on the Treaty of Ver­sailles. By the early 1930s, the Nazi Party led by Adolf Hitler be­came the dom­i­nant re­van­chist move­ment in Ger­many and Hitler and the Nazis gained power in 1933. The Nazi regime de­manded the im­me­di­ate can­cel­la­tion of the Treaty of Ver­sailles and made claims to Ger­man-pop­u­lated Aus­tria, and Ger­man-pop­u­lated ter­ri­to­ries of Czecho­slo­va­kia. The like­li­hood of war was high, and the ques­tion was whethe...

    Dur­ing De­cem­ber 1941, U.S. Pres­i­dent Franklin D. Roo­sevelt de­vised the name "United Na­tions" for the Al­lies and pro­posed it to British Prime Min­is­ter Win­ston Churchill. He re­ferred to the Big Three and China as a "trustee­ship of the pow­er­ful", and then later the "Four Po­lice­men". The De­c­la­ra­tion by United Na­tions on 1 Jan­u­ary 1942 was the basis of the mod­ern United Na­tions (UN). At the Pots­dam Con­fer­ence of July–Au­gust 1945, Roo­sevelt's suc­ces­sor, Harry S. Tru­man, pro­posed that the for­eign min­is­ters of China, France, the So­viet Union, the United King­dom, and the United States "should draft the peace treaties and bound­ary set­tle­ments of Eu­rope", which led to the cre­ation of the Coun­cil of For­eign Min­is­ters of the "Big Five", and soon there­after the es­tab­lish­ment of those states as the per­ma­nent mem­bers of the UNSC.


    Aus­tralia was a sov­er­eign Do­min­ion under the Aus­tralian monar­chy, as per the Statute of West­min­ster 1931. At the start of the war Aus­tralia fol­lowed Britain's for­eign poli­cies, and ac­cord­ingly de­clared war against Ger­many on 3 Sep­tem­ber 1939. Aus­tralian for­eign pol­icy be­came more in­de­pen­dent after the Aus­tralian Labor Partyformed gov­ern­ment in Oc­to­ber 1941, and Aus­tralia sep­a­rately de­clared war against Fin­land, Hun­gary andRo­ma­nia on 8 De­cem­ber 1941 and...


    Be­fore the war, Bel­gium had pur­sued a pol­icy of neu­tral­ity and only be­came an Al­lied mem­ber after being in­vaded by Ger­many on 10 May 1940. Dur­ing the en­su­ing fight­ing, Bel­gian forces fought along­side French and British forces against the in­vaders. While the British and French were strug­gling against the fast Ger­man ad­vance else­where on the front, the Bel­gian forces were pushed into a pocket to the north. Fi­nally, on 28 May, the King Leopold III sur­ren­dered him­self a...


    Ini­tially, Brazil main­tained a po­si­tion of neu­tral­ity, trad­ing with both the Al­lies and the Axis Pow­ers, while Brazil­ian pres­i­dent Getúlio Var­gas's quasi-Fas­cistpoli­cies in­di­cated a lean­ing to­ward the Axis pow­ers. How­ever, as the war pro­gressed, trade with the Axis coun­tries be­came al­most im­pos­si­ble and the United States ini­ti­ated force­ful diplo­matic and eco­nomic ef­forts to bring Brazil onto the Al­lied side. At the be­gin­ning of 1942, Brazil per­mit­ted the...


    Italy ini­tially had been a lead­ing mem­ber of the Axis pow­ers, how­ever after fac­ing mul­ti­ple mil­i­tary losses in­clud­ing the loss of all of Italy's colonies to ad­vanc­ing Al­lied forces, Duce Ben­ito Mus­solini was de­posed and ar­rested in July 1943 by order of King Vic­tor Em­manuel III of Italy in co-op­er­a­tion with mem­bers of the Grand Coun­cil of Fas­cism who viewed Mus­solini as hav­ing led Italy to ruin by al­ly­ing with Ger­many in the war. Vic­tor Em­manuel III dis­man­t...

    The United Na­tions began grow­ing im­me­di­ately after their for­ma­tion. In 1942, Mex­ico, the Philip­pines and Ethiopia ad­hered to the de­c­la­ra­tion. The African na­tion had been re­stored in its in­de­pen­dence by British forces after the Ital­ian de­feat on Amba Alagiin 1941, while the Philip­pines, still de­pen­dent on Wash­ing­ton but granted in­ter­na­tional diplo­matic recog­ni­tion, was al­lowed to join on 10 June de­spite their oc­cu­pa­tion by Japan.

The Char­ter was signed by 50 na­tions on 26 June (Poland had its place re­served and later be­came the 51st "orig­i­nal" signatory),[citation needed] and was for­mally rat­i­fied shortly after the war on 24 Oc­to­ber 1945.
