The Top Ten
The Germans made the first operational jet, largest European battleship ever, first ballistic missile, first radio controlled bomb, the Gustav and Dora gun, etc. The Germans were only defeated because of their terrible allies, the fact that they were basically against the world, and because Hitler made poor military and social mistakes including the holocaust which wasted manpower and money. When it comes down to it Germany had better technology and training and the allies only had sheer number. The Germans took out the 5th largest military in 20 days (Poland) and killed well over triple their casualties. The Tiger tank took out 5 Sherman tanks for every Tiger. They probably had the top 3 tanks in the war. That is why I voted Germany for the top WWII country.
Germany was alone against everyone so that they really got that far and reached so mutch showed that they were very strong
Strong military power to defeat country by country
I love that German eagle. Nazi's were cool and deadly. I love their war techniques that shocked the entire world.If Nazi Germany would have won the war I would have been very happy. Division of armies was the major reason behind their loss. If they had mixed up their entire power on one country then any country during that period could not able to face Germany I think.
Completely beat Japan in the pacific, even when the japanese were there first, had the higher ground (By literally and also they knew the lay of land.) Also, the japanese fought with more barbarous deadly tactics. But Europe was for russians, and Japan was for americans - SoldierOfFortune
War would have been lost if we were not involved
The sheer economic power.
The United States were so powerful that Hitler actually got mad at Japan for attacking Pearl Harbor because he was so afraid of us. But it was too late. The sleeping giant was now awake, and he was coming for them all. The United States dealt an awesome (formal meaning) amount of damage to Germany AND Nazi Germany. They were responsible for destructive air raids and fire bombings in various German cities. Truly, the axis was outmatched with us on the Allies’ side.V 8 Comments
Russia took on 80% of the Germany army (The most powerful in the world at the time), the entire Romanian, Hungarian, and Bulgarian, and Finnish armies, and liberated more then half of Europe, including dozens of countries, and did it all by themselves. The Americans only liberated France Netherlands and Belgium, and needed British, Canadian and French resistance help, and still had a hard time.
The soviets didn't fight back the Germans because of their military but because the Germans didn't have winter equipment so their weapons and tank froze and look at history the soviets made crappy planes compared to America and other nations around the world
Germany had the best generals, The USSR had the biggest and most powerful army at the end of World War 2.
The Soviet Union was 100% the biggest Allied player in the war. The Soviets would have won regardless of American economic help simply due to their brutal partisan fighting and ability to take infinite losses- be they material or man. They had the highest morale and would fight the Germans to the last man, and in the war of attrition which they entered, Germany stood no chance from the beginning. Their vast resources allowed for mass production of tanks and planes that no other power could compete with- And at least their generals didn't order the rape of Japanese women or firebombings of innocent towns. Those that did these crimes under the Soviet Union were swiftly executed, unlike in America or Britain. The true hero of WW2, I and many others owe our lives to the Soviet Union.V 9 Comments
Don't you love it when German is also Japan apparently considering Japan bombed pearl harbor not Germany
I'm from Britain but lets face it I Winston Churchill didn't become prime minister we would have been under Nazi control
Four years? Try checking a legitimate history book. America "intervened" long before Normandy.

The Chinese front was the Eastern front of the Asian theatre
Well, at least we tried. We only had like 6-7 million back then
Haha, no, we were hopeless - BrianScott01
They did their best - Vincent_Caldwell
Weakest major participant of WW2. Germany did all the fighting for them. Couldn't even take on the lone British alone. Even Greece was beating them by themselves until the Germans came to help Italy. The only country Italy took by itself was Albania, which virtually had No military, same with Ethiopia at the time.
They did nothing.
They were taken over!
France has been occupied during about 4 years, thanks to the allies US, UK.., General De Gaulle, the great famous General Delatre deTassigny who le the Armistice Army against Vichy (Pétain).
