Hmm... I looked it up, so I don't want to answer the questions, but I was wrong about Turkey, so Warspite should get credit for his answer.

Mind, Turkey is one answer out of seven for February 1945 DoWs on Axis.

Incidentally, there are apparently two possible answers for who DoWed Axis in March 1945. But there was someone who was even later... April 1945. Who?



Sure was Turkey and Argentina that I was thinking about. I remember reading this ages ago, but I have to admit I didn't realise a whole pile of other nations did also.

I believe that one was the only Danish air ace of the war. I remember the interview with him and him describing how he managed to get airborne when the German invasion began and then dived out of the sun to shoot down a Fokker, then wheeled left and shot down another Fokker and then spun right and shot down a third Fokker. The interviewer then asked if all the enemy fighters and bombers that day were Fokkers and he said: "Oh no, all these Fokkers were flying Messerschmitts."

Here's a good one for you: What happened the first week of September 1940 over on London that caused an unprovoked attack on Berlin? where 15 or so planes attempted to bomb Berlin, but none of the bombs made it through, but instead accidentilly bombed another German city thinking it was Berlin? You probably know the answer to that one, but not many know the second part. Why was it the best possible scenerio for the Germans to start bombing London. That is question 2. Here is 2a, and the most amazing of all: What was going on in the British parliament when churchill and his staff started to hear air raid sirens for the first time over London
It's basically a 3 part question even though there is a 2a. I challenge anyone to get all three answers. Here's a clue: it was a world altering event and no one knew about it until some 35-40 years later.


First part, are you thinking about the fact that a few German bombers bombed London by mistake?
[/quot
Correct. That was the easy part. The next part is slightly harder: why was it the best thing that ever happened to England , indeed it's very survival when Hitler turned his planes on London. If you know the answer, try and give details as to why it was the very thing that saved England from a possible Sea Lion invasion because the 2nd part of this question has everything to so with what I just said

Ah, now the second part makes a LOT more sense

It was a godsent for the British due to the fact that their retaliation strike on Berlin enraged Hitler beyond belief (both he and Göring had promised that not a single bomb would fall on Berlin, after this Göering was humorously talked about as Meyer (believe it was Meyer) due to his speach "if a single bomb falls on Berlin you can call me Meyer".
So at this point Hitler demanded London bombed into obliveration, changing focus from RAF's airports and factories making plane components, this allowed RAF/Allied pilots to get some much needed rest, had the Germans continued their previous plan it was likely that RAF had to vacate Southern England, but by deciding to bomb London, the Germans allowed RAF to decide which attacks to intercept, and not forcing them to intercept all of the incoming attacks.
As to why this helped to save England from a possible Sealion I've allready stated, RAF were about to vacant Southern England.

OK, I knew someone would come through with that one for by that time the pilots they had left literally were not sleeping. So I'm not surprised there. Here is something that, although I can tell you as fact(I have read many books on WWII, and can't honestly remember which one, It might have been the swiss series on the world warII Encyclopedia series. I'll have to look), I can't remember where, but it is a reliable source for sure. What happened in the basement of the British parliment as the first bombs were hitting London) I am really curious if anyone knows this one. To say what happened was history altering is a major understatement.

The first air raid sirens over London occurred Sept 3 1939, just as the ultimatum to Germany had expired and war was declared. But this doesn't seem to fit into the category of no-one noticing till 35-40 years later. I think some people did notice the outbreak of war!!!

Hmm I have no idea, but from the way you phrased the question, my guess is gonna be that the British were thinking about offering peace?

He was quoting some past British parliamentarian (who said the same to, I believe, Oliver Cromwell).

Actually it was Cromwell that said it, but you are correct indeed, it was said to Chamberlain.
