1 Soviet Union

The may not had the technological advantage in fighting the war as other nations did at the time, but boy did they make up for it with huge soldier numbers and aggressive military tactics.

Their Anthem is one of the most patriotic and nationalism inducing anthems ever - styLIShT

Europe would be dead without them

Soviet Russia was with America.

They destroyed Japan, but they didn't beat the Soviets though. Even though they did really really good.

Didn't beat the Soviets, not in open conflict thankfully, but you only see one of them around today don't you. - spartanparty

They didn't beat the soviets to Berlin even with the help with the allies, still an amazing military and crushed Japan.

I'm not going to say much but they let the soviets get to Berlin and they could destroy the soviets after WW2 - Alienkiller

3 Nazi Germany

Sly, they invaded almost all of europe and they lost in 1945 because of a two fronts war! - STFUSS

UK shouldn't be #1 because Germany, in my opinion has a better military than them. UK has a amazing military don't get me wrong, they couldn't be US and Soviets though.

The United Kingdom (UK) should be number 1 because it was in the golden age of the commonwealth and trade,it only is in fourth, it had to sell money to the USA for food so I'm saying 1.
