Many Africans served in Allied armies and returned with radical new ideas. During World War II, many African nations were made to fight for their colonial ruler, Britain. They fought against the Axis countries. Africans played a vital role in bringing an end to World War II. However, the African contribution to World War II is most times missing in the conventional history of World War II.

The British forces made troops from Africa in the West, East, and southern African territories. After World War II, many African nations saw the need to fight for their independence and self-determination from their colonial leaders. Africans did not listen closely to German propaganda as they were on the Allied side.
