Mexico is a medium sized country in North America. It is bordered by the United States, a major power in the Second World War, to the north, Guatemala and the United Kingdom's British Honduras to the south. It is mostly mountainous with jungle on the south, desert on the center and Baja California and forests and plains on the coast. After the sinking of Mexican merchant ships by German U-Boats and the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbour, Mexico was one of the first American nations to announce its support for the USA. It severed ties with the 3 Major Powers of the Tripartite Pact and officially joined the war on the side of the Allies in 1942, providing essential resources and men to the USA, most notably the 201st Squadron, or the "Aztec Eagles".
