I thought it was the Hawk's Nest... but maybe that was his fortress in East Prussia instead.

In german we say "Adlerhorst", so Eagle's Nest is the correct translation

It must too early in the morning. I swear the clue said the marines 'ironically' raised the flag, and was scratching my head really hard to find any irony therein...

couldn't remember the Midway, but I surprised myself by getting the MacArthur one right. It was a complete guess, I don't think I ever learned that one, but I do think I heard it in a movie or something.

The soldiers left behind to take the shelling at Corregidor knew it, but not all were as impressed by his rhetoric. Some would tell their mates "I shall return" before going off to the latrine.

Dugout Doug left all his men behind so that they could go on the Bataan Death March, thrown into POW camps, tortured and starved so that he could get the Medal of Honor. Go figure.

This bugged me, as well. To be fair, the Soviets did invade big parts of Carelia (about 15-20% of the total area of Finland, about 33% of it's industry and the then second biggest city Vyborg), but by no means did they invade (the whole of) Finland.

I couldn't either. Tried at least seven different spellings for Auschwitzh. I also tried Ivo Jima first, but since it wasn't accepted I tried a lot of other islands like Okinawa until finally spelling Iwo with a w.

i wouldn't classify the ardennes as a forest, more as a region in southern belgium or something like that.

Belarus then a part of USSR and Poland and now an independent country lost a greater % of its population than Poland. In terms of numbers, Auschwitz was the deadliest but in terms of % Treblinka was probably a deadlier camp. Auschwitz had some labor sub camps, Treblinka was a straight death camp. The only people who survived longer than arrival were used to bury the dead and serve the guards.

The road doesn't exist anymore. So suggesting that would be absurd.

Malta deserves to be mentioned here. It went through a lot, as did the RAF and the Royal Navy in defending it. Operation Pedestal in particular should be much better known.

Yep, that's why the flag of Malta has the St. George cross on it. The UK gave it to the WHOLE country for what they had to endure during the war.

Yeah our capital still bears bombed buildings such as the royal opera house. You'd be amazed how little knowledge our neighbors have of Malta, even most Sicilians don't know where Malta is and we can see their southern coast from our shores!
