Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. A total of five countries that had not existed during World War I were established on land that had been carved wholly or largely out of Russian territory after World War I. Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Poland are four of them. Which country is missing?

Answer: Lithuania

Nine sovereign states were established after World War I. However, not all of them were historically new. Poland, for example, had had a long existece till it was divided between Russia, Prussia and Austria in 1772-95, as had Lithuania, which was re-established from previously Russian land. Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia, however, were entirely new states.

The former was taken mainly from the territory of Austria-Hungary with a small segment of German territory (Glatz). Yugoslavia was created from Serbia and Montenegro together with territory that had formely been part of Austria-Hungary. Germany lost territory to Poland, Lithuania, Czechoslovakia, France, Belgium and Denamrk (though the last of these countries was neutral throughout WWI). These losses of territory as well as the blaming for the Great War hurt the dignity and pride of the German people, which was a possible factor for the beginning of World War II later.
2. The US government passed the ______ Acts in order to keep the United States out of a future war.

Answer: Neutrality

Beginning in 1935, Congress passed a series of Neutrality Acts in order to keep America out of future wars. This lasted until 1941 when the United States finally entered World War II.
3. Where did Adolf Hitler invite Austrian Chancellor Kurt von Schuschnigg to for a meeting in February 1938?

Answer: Berchtesgaden

Hitler invited von Schuschnigg to his villa in Berchtesgaden in the Bavarian Alps. During this meeting, Hitler convinced von Schuschnigg that Austria should have Nazi members in its government.
4. In the beginning of World War II, bored French troops sat along the Maginot line staring at the Germans, and German troops sat along the Siegfried Line staring at the French, both waiting for something to happen. What is the German word for this kind of war?

Answer: sitzkrieg

While German troops were fighting in Poland, French and German troops were sitting at the border between Germany and France waiting for a command to attack the enemy or to defend the own territory.
5. What was the highest number of German airplanes that attacked Britain on any one day in World War II?

Answer: 1000

On September 15, 1940, 1000 German airplanes ranged over Britain. In the Battle of Britain, however, they were finally defeated by the RAF (Royal Air Force) due to better design and defense technology (radar) for the British planes as well as own mistakes such as concentrating on low priority targets and the short range of their BF109 escorts (thanks to experten45).
6. What is the German word for "final solution"?

Answer: Endlösung

The "Endlösung", or "final solution", was about the question how to treat all the "subhumans" in the Third Reich.
7. How many Japanese planes were shot down at Pearl Harbor?

Answer: 29

The attack on Pearl Harbor happened on December 7, 1941 and brought the United States into World War II. Eighteen American ships were damaged or sunk, 350 planes damaged or destroyed, some 2400 people were killed and about 1200 wounded.
8. Which of the following villages was on the shore at Omaha Beach?

Answer: Colleville

Colleville was on the shore of Omaha Beach, which was part of the area where Allies troops landed at on June 6, 1944. On Omaha Beach, the Allies experienced the most casualties.
9. What is NOT true about Audie Murphy?

Answer: His most impressive act occurred in January 1942.

Audie Murphy's most impressive act occurred in 1945, when he shot 50 German troops with a burning tank destroyer.
10. How many of the 22 Nazi leaders accused of War crimes at the Nuremberg trials were sentenced to death?

Answer: 12

Later, some less important Nazi leaders were tried for War Crimes and found guilty. Of those tried by German courts and by Allied courts in Germany, however, none was sentenced to death, but to several years in prison. It was the first time in history that a nation's leaders were tried for crimes committed in a war.
