I categorised the nations involved in WW2 as (1) great powers involved in (total) war on one or several fronts alongside allied small or medium powers; and (2) states that were invaded (some of them twice - invaded and later on re-invaded/liberated), bearing the effects of war. Those categories make Europe and Asia clearly involved, while South America as a continent was not.

I think you should also add to the "clearly involved" continents North America and Australia. And all these continents except Europe became "clearly involved" in the same war after December 1941.

Yes, you're right. Unfortunately I can't include everything and cover all angles everytime I have to repeat my main arguments. This time I failed to include the things you mention. :)

different types of war

During college, I read a book written by some French author (I cannot remember his name right now...) that classified war into about ten types, beginning from the dawn of humanity. The last type was the "assymetric" conflict, like Vietnam, Afghanistan (both w/ USSR and UN) or Iraq; before that was the "total war", such as ww2 or other conflicts.
I just wanted to see some oppinions about ww2...
Merry Christmas!
