    That first quiz is horrible. Typos everywhere. "adodlf" "sorzeny" "irwin rommel" "who was th governor in germany" (WHAT?) "marko polo" "operation huskey". Last time I do that one. It helps if you can see what the questions are before you answer.:rolleyes:

    Quizmoz is a waste of time...


    NOTE---Eva Braun is an incorrect answer.


    A. PT Boats is the correct answer.
    NOTE---While PT Boats did participate in the D-Day landings, the did not land any troops during the invasion.

    The QuizMoz only had 16 questions. They said I got 10 correct (62%) However,the answers they say are correct on two of the questions are wrong, and one of the questions did not have any correct answer listed so I did not answer it. I actually answered 12 of 15 correctly (80%).

    I only got 50% on the funtrivia Canada quiz. Need to learn more about our good neighbor to the north.

    It'd be better if the answers were accurate. A few were absolutely ridiculous and clearly wrong.

    For example, there is no right answer for the landings on D-Day. There were a variety of landing craft used, primarily LCA, LCVP, LCM, LCI(L) among them.

    Eva Braun is the right answer for Hitler's marriage and only just. The answer given is based on rumor.

    Stalingrad was only a turning point, and a debatable one, for the war on the Eastern Front. Midway or Guadalcanal would be acceptable for the PTO / SWPA while Alamein or the Torch landings being one for the MTO / ETO. Imphal and Kohima would be a good choice for the CBI.

    The question about bombing and Japan is horribly worded leaving no good choice. Tokyo makes more sense the way it is worded as it was firebombed with in excess of 110,000 dead exceeding either nuclear attack in scope and was hit before Hiroshima or Nagasaki and bombed with the intent of ending the war too.

    Basically it shows a barely high school level of knowledge of WW 2.
