- 4I dragged this "item" into the list of course because the aerial bombing of Britain, had it succeeded in knocking out the Royal Air Force, would have led to an invasion of the UK, and who knows where history would have gone from there.
What shocked me when saw the stats was that I had forgotten that this took place A YEAR BEFORE THE U.S. EVEN GOT IN THE WAR. I'm sure if I grew up in the UK that fact wouldn't be new news. London getting the crap bombed out of it and literally a few hundred brave RAF pilots stopping the Wermacht - at least for awhile. Thinking about it gives me chills.
- 5If you had to point to a single turning point in the European Theater, I think it would have to be Stalingrad. There were 1.8 MILLION casualties in a single battle (a seven month siege).
Had Hitler managed to hold onto Stalingrad and add the natural resources of Russia to his arsenal, who knows what would have happened.
