Majority of the naval conflict is by US Naval.
Don't brush over the fact that there was intense and complex naval conflict outside of the Pacific. The British defeated the Italian and German navies and were embroiled in the Battle of the Atlantic. Also the British were involved in the Pacific in a growing way, something the US history books tend to (er) forget about. The British and Commonwealth were also constantly engaged against the Japanese in East Asia on the land turning withdrawal into running success.
The Axis lost not because they did not side with China, but because they were out-built by the US economy and doctrinal superiority.
Also don't forget that the Soviets and the Nazi's cooperating in invading countries in Eastern Europe, so had Germany not turned on Russia they may have been the most useful ally. Russia, with secure west may have themselves fancied a good pop at China.
