辨析fight against/fight with/fight for
fight against后接事物名词时意为“为反对……而斗争”，后接表示人或国家的名词时意为“和（同）……斗争（战斗）”，此时可与fight with替换使用，只是fight against 语气强些。
they fought bravely for liberation. 他们为了解放而英勇斗争。
fight with只接表示人或国家的名词，意思等同于fight against, 但如果和against出现在同一句子里时则表示“和……并肩作战”。
england fought with france against german fascists during the second world war. 二战期间英国同法国一道抗击德国法西斯。
they fought with italians in the last war but against them in this. 在上次战争中他们和意大利人并肩作战，而这次却同意大利人交战。
