There's no one single turning point of the war. You could put half those answers and many history buffs would agree with you. For example I put the earliest one the Battle of Britain. Why? Well this is when Germany realized how ineffective heavy fighters were and they knew they done f****** up. A good portion of the Luftwaffe was in bad shape meaning Allied bombers could strike deeper into Germany hitting vital parts of German infrastructure meaning Germany was already beginning to lose

I have to admit some of the comments are correct. There were some excellent questions, but some of the answers are extremely vague. Answers like "some stuff went wrong", also, Rommel never surrendered and there was no such thing as the Battle of Russia

What kind of [BEEP] is this? People please! Battle of Russia? DUDE 1 *Soviet Union 2 Battle for Stalingrad! Rommel ( the desert fox ) did NEVER surrender. Because of a battle earlier he was send back by Hitler to recover. It would take 2 months to defeat the germans in Africa....

The Battle of Stalingrad is commonly referred to as the turning point of the war. There was no "Battle of Russia" and El Alamein, although a turning point of sorts, involved small forces and was essentially a sideshow.

Rommel never surrendered in North Africa. Two months before the German surrender he returned to Germany and to plead with Hitler that his army be allowed evacuate the continent, and was effectively relieved of his command

No she's right.. the quiz is pathetic. What was the major turning point in the war? Russian battles, German battles.. huh? Awesome question. And the useless answers "some stuff went wrong some went right" is too amateur to be taken seriously. Website should stick to Clown School quizzes.
