The post-World War II division of Germany into four occupation zones affected both the Germans and the occupation-countries in numerous ways. The countries involved (France, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, and the United States) experienced both negatives and positives; for instance, they suffered additional expenses and responsibilities and yet, positively, could demonstrate their superior strength and have a direct hand in rebuilding Germany. For Germans, the same mixed bag of effects was evident: occupation was a constant reminder of their defeat in the war, yet it also prevented the country from falling into anarchy in the immediate post-war period.
