    You are right that Britain declared war on germany in september 1940 following Germany's invasion of Poland, whom Britain had promised to protect from invasion. France also declared war and for a while it was Britain and France vs germany. Then by Summer 1940 France had surrendered and Germany controlled virtually all of Europe. The British Empire (Britain along with Australia, Canada, India etc) stood alone fighting against Germany. Then in Summer 1941 germany invaded the USSR (Russia). This brought the USSR into the conflict, which was significant because the USSR had the largest land army in the world. Arguably it was this decision to invade the USSR which set Germany on the path to losing the war Then in December 1941 Japan attacked Pearl Harbour. America declared war on Japan, and Germany as Japan's ally declared war on America. The 2 sides from then on stood as following: The British Empire, The USSR (Russia) and America vs Germany, Japan and Italy. Working together, the 3 Great Nations managed to defeat italy in 1944, then go on to force the Germans to surrender in 1945
