As far back as anyone could remember, not a single German field marshal had ever been taken by the enemy while still breathing. So what does Mustache man go when the Sixth Army is surrounded, with no hope of being relieved? He promoted General Friedrich Wilhelm Ernst Paulus to, you guessed it, FIELD MARSHAL Friedrich Wilhelm Ernst Paulus. Paulus surrendered, and was taken as a POW by the Red Army,

    Facts about Alan Turing: 1. Turing died in 1954. 😭 2. He died 16 days before his 42nd birthday. 🙁 3. He killed himself [suicide] by cyanide poisoning ☠. Sad 😔. R.I.P. Alan Mathison Turing 23 June 1912 - 7 June 1954 'He was a great man' 4. He cracked Nazi Germanys' [fourth reichs'] enigma code. Yea, kick Nazi Germanys' ass. 5. Queen Elizabeth II granted him a posthumous pardon in 2013. 🏆🏅 6. He earned the nickname 'father of modern computer science'. Great 😊 7. He rode his bike 62 miles [99.7793 km] to school on the first day. Crazy 😯. 8. Shortened World War II by two or more years and saved 14 million lives. If it was not for him, I would not have existed probably. 9. Obtained his PhD from the Department of Mathematics at Princeton University. Smart. 10. After the war, he worked at the National Physical Laboratory, where he designed the Automatic Computing Engine. Question of the comment: Now, I wonder how or why he went insane... The End.

I only know about the severity of what he did because i've always been fascinated by WW2 and researched it on here on my own.

    Very nice, but you could have been more clear about the atom bombs. The soviets stood ready to aid the invasion and Japan was hopeless despite all fanatism. Considering how US decision makers chose the targets - namely by weather in order to allow for pretty photographs and even by lack of touristic flair - it's obvious that there was no immediate military necessity. The bombings were geopolitically planned war crimes and neither their success nor the Japanese crimes justifies them.
