What if Germany invaded Turkey in ww2?
If Germany invaded Turkey, Britain would almost certainly ship in war supplies. Turkey would almost certainly allow British troops to come and help them defend. This would probably include aircraft too, and the Battle of Britain and the Blitz were aerial defeats of the Luftwaffe by the Royal Air Force.
Where did Germany get its oil before ww2?
Romania was Hitler’s major source of oil, since he had failed to conquer the Russian fields. The Allied bombers had trouble hitting the oil fields and refinery – like other bombing raids in WWII, the majority of the bombs failed to hit their targets. But the sheer number of sorties left a mark.
What would happen if Turkey joined Axis?
Originally Answered: How would Turkey affect WW2 if it joined the axis in 1939? Its most effective use could have been to attack and occupy the middle east to deprive Britain of the oil and supply it to Germany. It would also haven given a second avenue of attack into Egypt and to capture the strategic Suez canal.
What strategy did Germany use to prevent supplies from getting to Allied powers?
Blockades, part of economic warfare, had been employed throughout history. The Allied blockade (1914-1919), which aimed to prevent war supplies reaching Germany, ultimately also targeted the civilian population.
How did the Soviet Union recover from the invasion of Germany?
After the initial shock of the invasion, the Soviet army recovered its strength and began pushing the German forces from Russia. Hitler’s armies failed to secure access to Russian oil, and in 1943 began a slow retreat, beaten back by overwhelming Soviet forces.
Why did Germany have no oil reserves?
Despite being one of the most powerful industrial nations on earth, Germany had no oil reserves. Furthermore, it lacked an empire – like the British – that would give it access to oil overseas.
What if the Soviet Union had remained neutral during WW2?
With the Soviet Union remaining neutral (and continuing to ship resources to Germany under the Nazi–Soviet Pact,) Germany would have been able to concentrate the Luftwaffe in the Mediterranean. German aircraft mauled the Royal Navy in 1941–42, even while supporting the campaign in Russia.
How did Operation Barbarossa change WW2?
Operation Barbarossa transformed Nazi Germany’s war from a one-front struggle, against a weakened Britain and a still-neutral United States, into a two-front conflict. The Eastern Front absorbed as much as three-quarters of the German army and inflicted two-thirds of German casualties.
