Some good questions. Some not so good answers to choose from. In general an easy test but not to be used in revision for a exam. See it as what it is. A quick playful test for yourself.

Battle of Russia, what?

On your question of why Rommel surrendered in North Africa. Rommel didn't surrender in North Africa. Rommel had left North Africa prior to the Surrender due to health reasons. Some historians said Rommel was evacuated because Hitler knew North Africa was lost and didn't want "his favorite general" captured.

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. 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
