The Top Ten

1 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

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

DIE DEUTSCHE
WO CHENSAU
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.

3 Soviet Union Soviet Union

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.

Indeed, theses guys

Four years? Try checking a legitimate history book. America "intervened" long before Normandy.

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.
