About This Quiz

War... war is truly hell.

Bloodshed and battles, warriors and warfare, these are by no means new concepts to humanity. In fact, from as far back as we can recall through the history of humanity, there have always been battles being fought - from feuding families and feuding tribes, to warring kingdoms and warring countries. However, in 1939 and the several years that followed, it became clear to many people that all of the wars that were fought beforehand would pale in comparison to the Second World War. 

Nowadays, the Second World War is remembered in the United States as a hallmark of sacrifice and the unity of the Allied nations; however, it is also infamous as being the deadliest conflict in human history. Out of the harrowing battles of the First World War and the Second World War arose several military officers who distinguished themselves as pivotal leaders on both sides - the Allied Forces and the Axis Forces. In this World War II quiz, we'll be taking at look at some of the most significant military officers that held the titles of Marshal, Admiral and General during the Second World War. So soldier, are you ready to take a walk back through history?
