Allied invasion of Iran
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Sovi...on_of_Iran

I was reading on the Kurdish independence referendum which referenced a Kurdish Republic in NW Iran following WWII (Mahabad) which lead me to the above article. I hadn't realized the British had attacked Iraq and later, with the Soviet Union, invaded Iran in 1941. This was a part of the war I didn't remember ever hearing about. Really doesn't look good for the allies.

The Soviets viewed Iran as essential for the delivery of supplies in addition to the oil reserves.
