Ok for those who have struggled in the past here is a 70 question WW II quiz all here should be able to ace. I don't necessarily agree 100% with their choice of answers, over simplified at best, but at least got 70 out of 70.

I see what you mean. I don't think you can class the result of Market Garden as a disaster for the allies.

Exactly. The photos usually give away the answer they are looking for in many cases as well.

Easy Peasy, even though it was a little Americo-centric!

I missed three, two of which were my bad for answering too quickly. The other one is a mistake on their part. Which allied invasion came first? Norway or North Africa? Norway of course, but the answer seemed to indicate they were asking about Normandy

The allies invaded Norway before they invaded North Africa. They were just different allies – Britain and France – known at that time as the allies.

Quit after ten questions. Even guessing means 50% right.

A 70 question quiz sounds like trench warfare.

Which allied invasion came first? Norway or North Africa?

Technically the allied intervention in Norway was not an invasion as the Germans invaded first. It was an allied military mission to assist the Norwegian defence and the Norwegians welcomed their help. So the question is correct.

Good point Fred Cartwright.

I concede on that one.
