An ally is a friend. The term can apply to an individual person, but is most usually used of nations which have formed friendships - either by natural community of interests, values, and beliefs, or by treaty. The United States and Britain are allies of long standing - the friendship known as the Special Relationship. However, an ally can be a short-term one - as in the unlikely alliance between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union between 1939 and 1941.
