The policy of appeasement which allowed the fascists to a head start was the largest error.

Honestly, I admit that I do not know as much about the specific battles in WWII as I should, but I might agree with the white-colored option.

My grand pappa a WW2 veteran says it was the dropping of the 2 H bombs on Japan because he thinks it was rubbing it in, the war was lost for Japan by them, they would've surrendered in a nother months or so without the boms that set a bad presedent

You are wrong conservative estimates have Hiroshima deaths at 150,000 PLUS another 75,000 at Nagasaki

The real mortality of the atomic bombs that were dropped on Japan will never be known. The destruction and overwhelming chaos made orderly counting impossible.

Oh yeah I forgot to tell you, my grandpoppa is not only a WW2 veteran and a D Day survivor, he is a history buff on the war, he is a member of the American legion and has given speeaches and classes about it

He told me to tell you that Dresden casualties were less than 40, 000 at the absolute most, that the original death tolls were mistaken, but he did agree that it was a poor choice by the British to bomb the city known for arts and culture and beautiful architect because it had no military bearing, it was the Brits revenge

approx. 85,000 people died directly from the bombing of Hiroshima.

135,000 people died in the bombing of Dresden

why does everybody always forget dresden

it was mainly to show the Russians how capable the allies were, the nuke more so than dresden

but Id say thats why they did it

alls Im saying is that Dresden almost gets forgotten about
Dresden was a cultural capital of europe and was turned to rubble, there was hardly any German war importance in Dresden, a dueshe move

1. Largest error for who? I may be wrong, but i always thought there were atleast a couple of different countries involved with different intentions.

2. Obviously the largest error of WWII is letting WWII happen
