The First World War cast a long and dark shadow over any second world war, as far as the German leadership was concerned. And the German High Command feared above all else a repeat of the bloody stalemate of the trench war in France between 1914 and 1918. But instead of repeating that inconclusive and costly struggle, Hitler led the Germans to total victory in six weeks. Other historians argue that the trouble with picking Barbarossa as the turning point of the war is that implicit in the choice is the judgment that defeat was inevitable for Hitler and the Nazis from that moment onwards. But, they maintain, this was not necessarily so.

The great strategic turning points in World War 2, here is my list, explained : Great Britain and France declare war. 1939 - In response to Hitler's invasion of Poland, Great Britain and France declared war on Germany. This surprised the over-confident Hitler and diverted his grand plan from its intended course by opening a second war front. After these two great bloody battles, the Russian army gained the initiative and moved from defense to attack, an attack which pushed the German army all the way back to Berlin. Admiral Max Horton gets command.

There is widespread disagreement among historians about the turning point of the American Civil War. A turning point in this context is an event that occurred during the conflict after which most modern scholars would agree that the eventual outcome.

They were also a decisive turning point in terms of American foreign policy as well. On the European front, I would argue the Battle of Moscow was the most strategically significant battle of World War II. Isolationism died along with many GIs on June 6, 1944. America would be engaged with Europe from that date onwards. The Normandy landings were unquestionably a watershed event in world history.

The Battle of Stalingrad was one of the most major and decisive battles of World War 2 where the Axis fought the Soviet Union for control of the city of Stalingrad

The Battle of Stalingrad was one of the most major and decisive battles of World War 2 where the Axis fought the Soviet Union for control of the city of Stalingrad. The battle took place between August 23, 1942 and February 2, 1943 and was fought with close-quarters combat and lack of regard for civilian casualties. It is among the bloodiest battles in the history of warfare with almost two million casualties. The German attack, led by General Paulus, to capture Stalingrad began in late summer 1942, and was supported by severe Luftwaffe bombing that reduced much of the city to rubble.

Considered by many historians as the turning point of the Second World War, the Battle of Stalingrad was fought . Of all the battles fought during World War II, these were the most prominent and had a lasting impact on the final outcome.

Considered by many historians as the turning point of the Second World War, the Battle of Stalingrad was fought between July 1942 and February 1943. The German army suffered many losses, after which it began its full retreat and the war turned in favor of the Allies. These offensives and assaults brought about millions of military and civilian casualties as some of the battles directly targeted cities like London, Stalingrad, and Moscow.

The Battle of Midway proved that despite of Pearl Harbor the US Navy . Churchill certainly regarded El-Alamein as the turning point of the war in North Africa and Europe. In Europe there were actually two turning points.

The Battle of Midway proved that despite of Pearl Harbor the US Navy recoverd quite completely on an united American front. With the death of General Yamamoto alongside the victory at Midway for the Allies, the Japanese were on the defensive for the majority part of the war, the Americans were able to successfully island hopped to eventually reach Okinawa in April 1945. As another answerer has quoted him, it was "not the end, nor even the beginning of the end; but it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning".

The best World War II books, as recommended by one of the most distinguished historians of the period, Sir Antony Beevor. The geopolitical turning point of the war came slightly earlier, even though people didn’t really recognise it at the time. It was in December 1941, when the German armies were repulsed in front of Moscow and Hitler decided to declare war on the United States after Pearl Harbor. This was a battle between the Soviets and Japan and it was one of the most influential battles in the whole of World War II.
