    Can somebody give me a history lesson of what the countries of these continents were doing when the world went to hell?

    Zee Germans had north africa. South Africa was under british rule since the boer war. So guessing they helped the British like all the other commonwealth states.

    Some Brazilian ships were sunk by the Germans and they sent about 20k troops to Europe. That's about it for SA.

    Africa sucked in it's chest to lower the sea level so then Europe could pass through more canals and stuff.

    Africa was being invaded. South America was a worthless asshole. Even Antarctica sent penguins to fight. The brutal Tuxedo Massacre of '41.

    There were sympathizers all over the world. Hardly an effective argument to post up some pictures as though they mean anything.
    Especially with Peron in power at the time.
