So who did most to defeat the Axis? Personally I pick the British Empire (I know what you're thinking, 'big surprise Johnny Jingo'').

Why? Britain fights from the beginning to the end, both the US and USSR only come in a third of the way through. Britain props up the USSR materially and at the start the US in tactical and technological terms. The Royal Navy was the largest in the world and Britain geographically provides a base for liberating Europe, the tide already turning before others got involved.
