South American allies & Mexico...

There were numerous South American allies that joined at the tail end of the war....what did they do or contribute? What about Mexico...I know they had a squadron of fighters in the Pacific...but what about beside that?

Late war declarations

Postby Ken McCanliss on 16 Mar 2003 03:44

Many Latin American nations declared war on the Axis late in the war so as to qualify as charter members of the soon-to-be United Nations organization.

Brazil did send a token force to Italy - one of the few which actually sent troops to fight.

Some contributed raw materials like rubber. I know Brazil did that. Maybe ironworks things like that to some extent.

If I am not wrong Mexico provided manpower for the war effort to the United States under the Bracero program. I can remember about German pirsoners of war seeing the Mexican workers in the field.
