The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s.

The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.
