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

Grandpa was a mechanic on some ship, IIRC. Never saw any action though. Well, I mean he saw some action (after all, I'm here). Just not in the war.

My grand grand father did a bad ass thing during WW2. There was this battle a couple of kilometers from our house. After the battle he went to the battlefield, found himself a Kraut helmet with a bullet hole straight through the middle - he then went home, put it in his window and planted flowers in it.

I love WW2 stories :)

My Grandfather suffered with pneumonia for most of his adult life, so he couldn't fight in the second world war. During the air raids he helped dig the shelters in the back yards of all the elderly residents in his area who couldn't do it themselves.

My Grandfather ran away to see when he was 14, by the time WWII had started he had risen to Captain a ship in the merchant navy. He sailed all around the world delivering cargo for the entire duration of the war, ended up being torpedoed twice by German U-boats.

My country had a bunch of arguably useless resistance fighters that indirectly killed 100 civilians whenever they killed a German soldier. Isn't that nice.

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.

My great grandfather was a fisherman, they threw fish to the prisoners working for the nazis. There was a camp not far from where they lived, so a lot of prisoners were working on the nearby roads and such.

Whenever someone mentions a german foot soldier, I just think of a guy who just got entirely blamed for World War 1, and had to go through a depression for a long time, until some guy saved the country, and happened to that Jews.

My family is Yugoslavian and we got occupied by Germany in the war. My grandmother is the 14th of 15 kids (yeah holy **** , my great grandmas was a baby machine) and 3 of her brothers fought in the war. One fought for the Nazis (not against) after they took over so he could get revenge against the Serbs who'd been terrorizing the rest of yugoslavia. Another fought against the Germans in the Yugoslavian Peoples Army. The last fought as a partisan under the command of Marshall Tito who drove the Germans out and became the leader of the country. All three of them died in the war.
