The US has also suffered losses of infrastructure, particularly in Hawaii and bases in the Pacific, due to frequent Japanese bombings. The USSR (now Russia) suffered huge damages in cities and farmlands due to German invasions and devastated millions of lives as a whole. Along with the three major nations of the Allied Powers, countries who participated with them suffered losses that vary from destroyed cities (Paris, Warsaw, Manila) to loss of agricultural land. The Axis Powers (Germany, Japan, and Italy) - they suffered greater losses because they have participated much in the destroying of the Allied Powers by patrolling aircraft, sea vessels, submarines, and land transport to threaten their enemies. Their volatile economies crushed because of loss of equipment, land, and lives altogether, and they have suffered billions of dollars in economic losses. Japan was particularly hit hard by the Hiroshima and Nagasaki's explosion of the atomic bomb by American forces, Germany was hit hard by the splitting of Berlin into several factions (British, American, and Russian) that forced the Germans to escape, and Italy (although Mussolini remained in power for a short time after WW2) suffered major damages as Milan and Rome went into flames.
