The Soviet Union competed with the United States as a superpower in the years following World War II. How can a country win a war just because it engaged in combat with a rival?

Throughout its history, the Soviet Union engaged in several conflicts. It participated in the Russian Civil War, invaded Finland, and engaged Japan in a quick covert battle.

The citizens of the United States, a federal republic, enjoy a dynamic political system, a long history of the rule of law, substantial freedoms of expression and religion, and a broad range of other civil liberties. But in recent years, the country's democratic institutions have come under attack, as evidenced by the rise in political polarization and extremism, partisan interference in the electoral process, bias in the criminal justice system, unjust immigration and asylum policies, and widening gaps in wealth, opportunity, and political influence.

The English Channel, the North Sea, and the Irish Sea encircle the island nation of the United Kingdom. Wales, Scotland, and independent Northern Ireland are all included.

The UK is the birthplace of several significant scientific and technological innovations, including gravity, hydrogen, penicillin, and aerodynamics. It also has a rich literature, art, music, and technology history. It boasts a population of over 66 million and is home to many of the top colleges in the world (in 2020).

Britain was the most powerful military force in Europe during World War Two. More than 800 infantry divisions comprised its army, and its air force was the strongest in the world.

British soldiers fought bravely and made the most use of their available resources. But because they lacked the resources to bolster their forces, they could not defeat the Soviet Union.

It is difficult to predict who would have won the conflict, although it was evident that neither the Soviet Union nor Britain had sufficient might to defeat the other militarily.

The Soviet Union would have swiftly annihilated the United States and its allies if it had won the war. They would have also taken control of all of Oceania, including Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.

The second-largest nation in Europe and a significant industrial hub in France. It is also a well-liked tourist attraction with many things. To searing World War II, the French government deployed a volunteer military unit to combat the Soviet Union. But, there were few members, and the recruitment process took a while.

The Legion of French Volunteers against Bolshevism was founded in the spring of 1941 by a consortium of French-language newspapers known as Le Figaro. By the summer of that year, it had amassed more than 7,000 soldiers.

By the end of 1941, France had joined the United States and Britain as an ally in the war in Europe. Also, the war had divided Europe and prepared the way for the Cold War.

Japan had lofty territorial ambitions in the 1900s and was the Soviet Union's longest-lasting combatant. It seized several Asian nations and invaded China. It was an Axis power when it joined World War II, and the United States destroyed it with two atomic bombs.

Japan enacted a constitution fashioned after the Western world in the 1920s and started an industrialization plan. The government began to adopt more assertive foreign policy stances against China during the 1930s.

Particularly in the far-eastern regions of Korea and Manchuria, the Japanese were growing more aggressive in their attempts to expand their influence into Chinese territory. Premier Joseph Stalin increasingly worried about Japan's eventual aim of occupying the Chinese mainland in reaction to these hostile acts.
