I was idly flicking through my WW2 databook the other day, and realised something rather interesting.

In all the war, only in the PTO and Eastern Front were Axis forces in-theatre consistently outnumbered.

In N. Africa, N.W. Europe, Burma, there was almost always parity or even an Axis advantage

Admittedly the data I have refers to the number of formations available rather than the actual manpower, but still.
