Can't speak for the quizmaker, but I presume that the USSR is only counted among the allies after the German invasion in June 1941. After all, the Soviet occupation of the Baltic countries was tied to the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact between Stalin and Hitler - they weren't allying against Germany at all yet.

Did over 1 million people die during the Battle of Berlin? Or did you include casualties of the Vistula-Oder Offensive? Wikipedia doesn't seem to back up such a high number of casualties, even if you believe the improbably high number of German military dead according to Soviet sources.

An excellent quiz. While I hate to "split hairs" I must bring to your attention that it is misleading to say that all eight Battleships at Pearl Harbor were "destroyed." Only the Arizona and Oklahoma were destroyed, in the sense of being permanent losses. Pennsylvania actually was spared the worst of the attack thanks to being in drydock, and Maryland and Tennessee escaped with relatively minor damage because The West Virginia and Oklahoma protected them from torpedo strikes. While it is true California and West Virginia were sunk and the Nevada beached, all three eventually returned to service. Personally, I think a more accurate world would be "present" in the attack, but ultimately is up to you. Looking forward to more WWII quizzes :)
