Two of these countries border the Pacific Ocean -- and one of them took control of several countries in this ocean.
However -- only one of these countries was an Axis nation.
Which one do you think it is?

You're right. Germany, Japan, and Italy were all Axis powers. Which of these three borders the Pacific Ocean?
US history - Gabby, Monday, March 24, 2008 at 8:02pm
Japan borders the Pacific Ocean.
US history - Ms. Sue, Monday, March 24, 2008 at 8:03pm
Right! Japan was the Axis power that took over several Pacific Ocean nations in 1941.
