This quiz isn't great because the correct answers are often way more specific than every other answer.

This test is not very good, most of questions are about western front which didn't play abig role. There is the battle of Rzhev, The battle of Kursk, it could be question about very important battles of Smolensk or yelnya, Siege of Leningrad, Operation Bagration, Operation Iskra, Corsun Chercassy counter offensive, Battle of Dniepor, battle of Ballaton etc.
