Great-Granddad served with the RAF. His brother was an officer for the Canadian Army. Fought in D-Day.
My Great Grandmother's street had a laundry at the end of her street. Took a direct hit in the Blitz and scattered everyone's clothes all over the rooftops

My Granddad was in Denmark and he saw a lot of ****, like there was this guy who was part of a resistance group and his family got dragged out by the Nazi's and they shot his wife in the stomach so that it took really long for her to die and the family watched, there was another story which was quite interesting though he said that the resistance group put dye on chickens and wrote words like "**** Nazi's" and then just released them in town centres so that the Nazi's had to spend entire weeks searching and looking for these chickens rather than killing people. He committed suicide when he was older because he was so disturbed.

My country (Sweden) let german troops wander through Sweden and we gave them guns and gun powder and minerals and ****, when Hitler was losing Sweden turned a blind eye and joined the russians, we never fought we were just idly helping Germany.

We acctually didn't help neither the russians or the germans. We were neutral the entire war cause we though the war was pointless, When the Germans came and said they hade no reasons to attack Sweden if they could walk from Sweden to Norway. And since we didn't have a big army and it was kinda retarded we would go to war with Nazi Germany and get alot of people killed and our city destroyed and then get occupied because of Norway. we let them, but we also helpt Norwegians and other countries during the war, my grandpa helped Norwegians during WW II and im proud fo him for that. We were kinda selfish back then but we weren't dumb. Proud to be Swedish!

My great grandfather (who I was named after) was a British soldier from Guernsey (British territory in the English channel, was taken by Germans) - he was taken as a POW, promptly broken out, proceeded to free other soldiers, etc, for most of the war. But during the battle of Britain in 1940, before all that, he was one of the few troops in Normandy at the time. Basically the Luftwaffe were going to bomb the **** out of London, and German forces were going to try and take British mainland. My great grandfather promptly decided, **** it, I'm going to die. Stole a metric ******** of liquor and got ****** up before the call to retreat was made. So there he was, on a battleship, off his face and too drunk to function. So he was simply allowed to run around the ship, singing rugby songs, and about how he ****** the German soldier's assorted family members. He woke up with two things - a hangover, and a medal, for giving the crew morale, and helping the British forces repel the German assault.

/story
My grand-grandfathers wife was from Sudety which was mostly habitated by germans, but it was czech territory.
(My GG-father was czech) in 1944 because our country was running out of food and stuff. and germans recieved more than czechs did, she, my gg-mother , went to office and told them that she want to have german citizenship to recieve more supplies. They gave it to her because she was german. BUT now when she was german her husband, my gg-father, have to go to war. He went to the barracks and act like he was deaf (not deaf like deaf, but very very bad hearing) and he got away with it 2 times. But 3rd time, new german officer say "DEAF? That's good in panzer" .. and so my GG-father went to Easter front. He survived 4 deadly hits and after all these battle he was leader of squad (4 tanks including him), after he recieved cross for bravery he went back home, he cried with his brother, because he now it was last time he see him. He died few days later in Battle of Budapešť.
