Nice quiz. You could add the Channel Islands (UK) which were under Nazi occupation from June 1940 until May 1945.

Take away at least a minute. This quiz is kind of too easy

I actually thought they managed to take over pretty much all of France. Good to know.

The southern part of France was controlled by Germany - just not directly. It was under occupation from Vichy France, which was a puppet government of the Nazis, but it wasn't directly administered by them.

In November 1942 Germany DIRECTLY controlled most parts of France, just some parts where instead controlled by Italy (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3c/FranceOccupee.jpg). It all comes down to which arbitrary date "peak in 1942" refers.

Hungary, Romania and Italy were just allies of Germany which is why they're not on here

Algeria, Morocco, and Tunisia were under the control of puppet France, Libya belonged to Italy, and the Germans never controlled Egypt long enough, only temporarily took territory before being beaten back

So they never reached the Caucasus?

They did advance between September and November 1942 to the Caucasus. German Panzers were halted near Ordzhonikidze on 2 November 1942 before reaching their target of Grozny. If the territory between Rostov and Stalingrad is included in the map then the area to the south up to the Caucasus mountains and bounded by Novorossiysk, Maikop and Alagir (all of which were taken by the Germans during their advance) should also be included

This map: https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/map-of-german-advance-to-stalingrad-july-november-1942 shows the southern area I refer to in the post above.

I note the source map linked above the quiz doesn't actually extend to the area in question between Rostov and the Caucasus, but this area should be included.

Just wondering, how do you edit a map to look this precise?

Tracing. Though I'll be redoing the map to improve it later today.

Tracing over the already made Wikipedia map (as opposed to freehand or copying a Jetpunk map)

Not really sure what you mean by tracing. I can find it on Inkscape but I'm not sure what to do from there. Maybe a blog article would be nice...

Open Inkscape, open the png (or equivalent) base map, select "Bezier curves" (shift+F6), and detour every country by consecutively clicking all points on its borders.

The Channel Islands are not part of the UK. They are UK Crown Dependencies.

Which is why they don't need to be guessed.

Congrats For The Feature! Imo the Map makes this series too easy. I suggest removing the Map or doing an empty map.
