Very poor test, vague questions and some even vaguer answers. I do not recommend.

A few of the answers to questions are close, but not correct .. most are okay but the obviously wrong answers are ridiculous in some cases.

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.

Questions 13, 11, 9 & some others are not correct ie the germans were in italy before any allied forces arrived! The person who made this quiz need to brush up on facts

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

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.
