    3 Wars That Paved the Way for World War I

    The Russo-Japanese war is really the most obvious one. Extensive use of railway. ( The Russians had to use them) The first war in which machine guns were extensively (and successfully) used, trenches and shelters, plus the first real use in war of recoiless artillery. Totally wrong of me to say "recoiless" artillery. I meant to say "quick firing". As in artillery with a built in recoil system, that meant the gun did not have to be relaid after every shot.

    10 Friendly Fire Incidents From Military History

    I am surprised you didn't mention the death of Leslie McNair, killed by the USAF in Normandy in 1944. I believe he was the highest ranked American soldier killed in WWII.

    What was the worst mistake made by Germany in WWII?

    Declaring war on the U.S. after Pearl Harbour. Would have been great pressure on Roosevelt to stay out of Europe otherwise, but Hitler played right into Roosevelt and Churchill's hands.

    What was the best fighter plane of WWII?

    None of the above. Only one plane sank ships, bombed buildings, shot down planes at night etc. etc. The De Havilland Mosquito.

    What was the most important tank of World War II?

    Has to be the T34. Because (almost) every tank since has a fundamental part of the T34 in its basic design. The sloped armour.
