this guys were the worst skip'em this time


I also remembered something else - at the end of the war Hitler gave an order to destroy all German heavy industry and thankfully the order was never carried out, just imagine Germany as a one big farm these days

Baatan Death March. Japanese soldiers knew exactly what they were doing and showed no mercy.

As far as that goes, the Manhatten Project is STILL a much argued about subject. This is definitely the most CONTROVERSIAL operation of WWII.

Well, at least the dropping the bomb part of it, but I agree driller.

Yurry, as far as the most “controversial” operation of World War II, I will assume you are referring to the Allied Forces? If this were the case, my choices would be 1) Normandy Invasion; 2) Operation Market Garden; 3) Operation Dragoon; and 4) Battle of Berlin. The Russian defeat of Berlin was inevitable for they vastly outnumbered the Germans in all areas. And with these numbers a “siege” would have been the ideal military strategy. However, Stalin’s eagerness to win the Battle for Berlin fueled by hate and marked by atrocities, was among the most controversial operations with an end result that was unpredictably bloody.

Battle of Berlin was just par for the course. More Russians die because they push the offensive unnecessarily and get lots of their soldiers killed pointlessly. Ever major operation undertaken by the Soviets has potetial for be most controversial.

Godofthunder, from that perspective you make a very valid point.

We never assassinated Hitler, we could have, but we didn't, and that really was dumb.

Jason, Hitler was a nut about Private Security, It would of been very difficult, remember his own Generals tried to kill him a number of times (Most famously of course the July 20 plot)

Hitler even caried a steel plate In his Hat that could stop a rifle round.
