World War II: Important Battles
World War II was a series of the bloodiest battles in history. Unparalleled civilian casualties, new weapons and tactics, as well as a new emphasis on air warfare helped make the Second World War so deadly. The Battle of the Atlantic raged almost the entire length of the war, while the Battle of Britain proved how important air warfare was. Fights for the Soviet cities of Stalingrad and Leningrad killed countless residents. Pearl Harbor drew the United States into the conflict, and the Battle of Berlin helped bring the Nazis down. In Part 5 of our series on WWII, WatchMojo.com learns about some of the most important battles of World War II.
