Interesting Facts about The World War 2

It has been a very historical weekend, to commemorate it, here are some facts about the WW2.

-From 1939 till the end of the war, the Allies dropped 3.4 million tons of bomb, mostly in industrial German cities.

-For each man killed on battle, four others were wounded.

-40,000 men served the U-Boats but 30,000 never returned.

-Japanese Pilot, Hiroyoshi Nishiwaza, was probably the best dogfighter in the air. He took down 80 planes in his time and died when he was on a cargo plane. 80 planes are pretty good when the chances of your death are at 74%.

-When the Allies reached the Rhine, one of Germans most important source of clean water. They pee’d on it, including Churchill himself.

-40 to 45 % of German planes were destroyed by accidents.

-The Japanese were often considered the most fearless, with no fear of death (if a soldier was caught they would 100% commit suicide). But maybe the Russians were even better with their no fear attitude. The Russians destroyed around 400 enemy planes by just ramming at them. When there path was blocked by mines they would just walk on it.

-Hitler executed 84 of his generals, for various reasons.

-When the Canadians and Americans troops reached the island of Kiska, 21 person died in a fire fight….between the American and Canadian.

-The only nation from the war to declare war against the US was Germany. Nation is the key word here.
