Best Answer

The Allies needed lots of ships for the same reason any army needs a navy. They needed to transport troops from America to Europe everyday and patrol the coasts of the US for German U-boats (submarines) to keep American people safe. Also, in the pacific aircraft carriers served as airports for the air force. Lastly, the Allied army needed to have some type of defense from the other enemy battleships.

Who were the major Allied powers in World War 2 and their leaders?

For the Allied Powers, Franklin D. Roosevelt was President of the U.S., Winston Churchill was Prime Minister of England, and Joseph Stalin was the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. These were the "big three" of World War II, and some might also include Charles de Gaulle, the President of France, to make a fourth. Note that initially, the Russians were allied with Germany until they came under German attack. The Axis Powers included Adolph Hitler, the Chancellor and Head of State of Germany, Benito Mussolini, the Prime Minister of Italy, and Hirohito (Emperor Shōwa) the Emperor of Japan. There were other players, but these are considered the major ones. Use the links below to check facts and learn more.
