Everyone will have a different answer to this question but in my opinion, all three of the most important battles were in the European arena.

First would be the German thrust into Belgium April 1940 that destroyed the best of the French and British armies. This enabled Germany to quickly destroy the rest of the French army and occupy that nation. The political and geographical advantages thus gained enabled Germany to fight effectively for many years. Just one example: the oil supplies captured alone, were about a two year supply for the Germans.

Second would be the Autumn 1941 battle for Moscow. Had Germany had taken that city earlier, there is little doubt in my mind that the Soviet system would have been hobbled tremendously and unable to carry out successful military operations against the Germans. Yes, fighting would have continued on the eastern front, possibly for years, but the advantage would have been with the German forces and the Russians would have been scrambling just to maintain a coherent fighting force and effective government.

Third would be Normandy, D Day, June 1944. While Germany had already lost the war by that time, this battle ensured that Western culture would dominate Europe for a few more decades, rather than be debased by Russian/Asiatic invaders. Had the Germans repelled the Allies in France, Germany collapses anyway within a year or so, to be occupied almost entirely by Soviet forces. This would have put the Soviets even further west than they were allowed in 1945, possibly with dire consequences for liberty and representative democracy in Italy, France and even Britain.

All wrong trust me the biggest one was on pearl harbor those Japanese idiots thought bombing us would stop us.
