Answer 3, Additional Input The aircraft mentioned above were all American. Other countries like Japan, Germany, Italy, Russia and the U.K. also manufactured very capable airplanes. The German made the famous Bf-109, Fw-190, and the first jet planes, including the incredible Me-262, which was literally years ahead of fighters of other nations. In the U.K., the Supermarine Spitfire is a legend, but let's not forget about the HWaker Hurricane and the Hawker Tempest. As for Japan, let's just mention the Zero, which scored many victories. World War 2 aircraft were really something for their age and time. Answer 4: Also the spitfire and lancaster were some of the most famous british fighters and bombers. Added Note: Germany also used the Stuka Dive Bomber.
Dachau, Auschwitz, and Treblinka were three of the major camps.
Here are a few. Lt Col Paddy Blair Mayne The highest decorated solider was William Kingston of the 3rd brigade. The most decorated Brit…ish Royal Marine was Scotland's Corporal Tom Hunter. Major William Martin, RM (fake identity) - The British disguised a body as a Royal Marine courier and gave him fake papers identifying him as Major Martin and dropped him off the coast of Spain.

the M1 Garand (pronounced grand) was used by most countrys involved in ww2 and the Thompson was used by i think even more countrys. +++ That may be the "most famou…s" to military historians but the keeping to weapons not vehicles, among those that really mean anything to most people were the German V1 and V2, Japan's Kamikaze planes, the British "Dambuster" bombs and the two atomic bombs dropped by America on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The V1 was called the "flying bomb" or "doodlebug" - the latter referring to its distinctive exhaust noise - and was effectively a crude unmanned aircraft packed with explosives and designed to fly as far as London, its target. Once nearly over London its engine would cut out and it would drop onto the city. The V2 was a ballistic missile (with conventional chemical-explosive warhead), i.e. one designed to fly under power to its zenith then fall parabolically to its target. The V2s were all aimed at London. (Towards the end of the War the Nazis were building a V3 weapon in NE France: a battery of 90-mile range 6"-calibre guns intended to maintain a steady fall of shells onto London. The battery was discovered though not fully identified, its construction slowed by bombing, then captured after the Normandy Landings.) The Kamikaze were suicide-pilots, deliberately flying fighter-planes loaded with explosives at their targets. They were used particularly against the American Navy in the Pacific. The Dambuster bombs were very heavy, spherical weapons that were spun up to high speeds of rotation in mountings on modified Lancaster bombers. The spinning ensured that once the bomb had been dropped from a carefully-set height above the reservoir it would skim along the surface then keep itself against the dam wall as it struck that and sank. This was so it would detonate right against the concrete deep under the water.
they were battle of the shivoloh, battle of the rabiro and the battle of sumali.
Different cultures have different instruments which are well known. As do different generations within cultures. With in generations X, Y and I in Western society the most fam…ous instrument would probably be either guitar or drum kit. However there are remote places in Africa and Asia where people would not have heard of these. To be conclusive you would require somekind of survey spanning the world.
Adolf Hitler was most famous in WWII. Statistically speaking, he is the sole historical figure who has more books written about him than anyone else.
Probably the most famous poster of WW2 was probably 'Dig for victory" but it might not be. +++ Actually it was just one of many propaganda posters. The "digging" w…as of allotments for growing food. The "Your Country Needs You" heading this thread dates from WW1.
A few I think that would be famous might be the U.S. Boeing b17, the Japanese zero plane, German panzer tank and the German U boats.
The M4 Sherman or T34 .
In US in WW2
The BREN light machine gun and the STEN sub-machine gun were both extremely famous British weapons. It would be hard to choose. The STEN was widely used by resistance forces t…hroughout Europe because is was cheap and easy to make.
