Just a thought, as a lot of people seem to be tripping up in the same way.
If you're being literal, the Slovak Republic did exist for a few years during the period, but the idea that it was an independent sovereign nation is pretty strange. It was a German puppet which only a handful of countries recognised, and which only existed in any sense for the duration of the war.
im gonna kill myself
Before becoming a Republic in 1961 South Africa introduced a large amount of apartheid-era legislation, relying on its independence via the Statute of Westminster to do so. If it wasn't independent in 1939 then effectively one could argue that the UK enacted large parts of the apartheid system, which I think you would agree would be silly.
All those countries are now independent. The Soviet Union recognized the independence of these countries in 1991.
Estonia adopted the declaration of independence 20.8.1991 and Latvia the following day. Lithuania had issued a proclamation in the early spring of 1990.
Lithuania and Russia, led by Yeltsin recognized each other in July 1991. Estonia and Latvia, the Russian Federation recognized the independence after the conservative coup attempt 24.8.1991.
There most notable services were in greece, crete, north africa and italy.
Seriously I am so stupid.
I'm the reason it's not 100%.
Agree with you that the Soviet Union sacrificed a lot though. Pretty ironic that a nation as autocratic as the USSR/Russia did more than any other country to save democracy. But, of course, I am grateful for that.
...but forget about ITALY.
I'd also like to say VERY nice quiz.... I've rated 5 stars
Keep up the good work!
Please update :)
Estonia/Latvia/Lithuania was USSR *gets corrected*
Wheres Denmark and Norway?
I feel so dumb i missed [country]
there was many different Chinas that fought japan there was China, Communist China, Shanxi, Sinkiang, and Xibei San Ma so did they not have as many military deaths
In 1938, the 1,500,000-strong Czechoslovak Army was among the largest in Europe, and fairly well-equipped with modern weapons, including locally produced tanks and aircraft.
The list should be consistent, as it is it is erasing contributions and suffering of Czechoslovakia (and other countries). It should either include Protectorate and Slovakia as separate entities or as Czechoslovakia, not ommit them altogether.
More so, the number of casualties for China counts casualties since 1937.
