Since this thread is a bit silent, a question.
In the purest sense, Axis means Germany, Italy and Japan.
My question is how do we consider some of the conquered countries that "joined" the Axis cause, especially countries conquered by Germany.
So, do we consider countries such as Poland, Czechoslovakia, Rumania, Hungary, the Baltic states etc. as conquered countries or as part of the Axis group.
Here, I exclude the Nordic countries and "Western European" countries as my understanding of the history of the time is that they were not quite so willing partners even if they did produce materiel for the German war effort.
I am not trying to start a political discussion, merely that I have a lot of photos in my archives that might be of use in this thread but they are not from the traditional three pure Axis countries.
Any opinions are welcome.
