more of a site than one building. Anyway, it's well worth a visit if you ever get the chance to do so...

Good quiz. But err... can you please change the Singapore clue from British to Allied? There were lots of Indian, Malay, Australian and New Zealanders there as well. There's sensitivities here because there's a feeling the British betrayed their Allies by surrendering on their behalf... leading to move of them dying under nasty circumstances.

I would say that the British betrayed those soldiers that they had subjugated in the past.

I can't believe you have a quiz on important cities in WWII and don't mention Warsaw or Krakow? That's crazy!

In a sense every town/city/village/hamlet etc was important in their own way during the War. I think this quiz has chosen some that stand out. Otherwise there could be several hundred names on the list.

Oak Ridge, TN was also a very important city, when talking about the Manhattan Project. Oak Ridge was considered the scientists' headquarters.

I kept putting it in. Two, three times. Like I misspelled it. Or is it Tennessee, or Oak Ridge Tennessee? I finally switched course and got Los Alamos.

Do you really think that this quiz is *the* definitive list of all important cities of the war?

Not really. It wasn't bombed, it did not have a famous trial there or it wasn't part of the Vichy govt. Other than both sides in the conflict just passing through and having fun with the women there wasn't much else going on there.
