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 country was overrun by the Japanese. My grandpa was caught and tortured by the Kempetai, luckily he survived. My parents were both rounded up and put into internment camps.

China: Getting raped by the Japanese
America: Nuking the Japanese

I'm okay with this.

Spain: Fascist power since 1939 to 1975. Allied with Germany. Civil war between 1936 and 1939. First country fighting fascism. Defeated against it because they had the army and German support, while the others had a broken government and a late Russian help.
Faction leader: Francisco Franco y Bahamonde

My Great grandfather hid a finish solider in the woods.

He was taken and tortured many times, but he managed to convince them he had nothing to do with it.

His sister was married to a Nazi.

And my grand mother was given candy from german soliders.

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.

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 Great grandad fought in North Africa during WW2, apparently his name is carved in El Djem in Tunisia and Nazis burned my grandad's house to the ground, his cat went mad and his dad had to shoot in the head. I found this confusing considering they were from Hungary, an ally of the Nazis.

/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.
