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.

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.

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.

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.

The aim of the Germans with the "battle of the bulge" or Ardennes offensive as we cal it in Belgium (as wel as Germany) (or Ardennes battle in France) was NOT to invade France directly. It was to cut through allied lines with 2 objectives: the river Meuse and especially Antwerp. This would cut off allied supplies and the allied advances in the Netherlands. The Ardennes do lie partly in France but the nazis never reached the border with France they tried to go westwards, not southwest). So there was no German invasion of France in 44 (only in may 1940 and fall 1914). They only fought in Belgium and Luxembourg.
