Axis Powers

In 1936, Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy concluded a series of agreements and announced that the world would rotate on the Rome-Berlin Axis, hence the two were called the Axis Powers. In the spring of 1939, Germany and Italy concluded the Pact of Steel, further aligning the two nations militarily and politically. The Pact of Steel was followed in September 1940 by an agreement between Germany, Italy, and Japan known as the Tripartite Pact and pledging mutual assistance. The alliance also became known as the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo Axis. The three nations were the principal partners of the Axis that opposed the Allies during World War II.
