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 ********* everyone's clothes all over the rooftops

We sold copper, iron, gold, steel, coal and volframium to both the Allies and the Axis.

We sent about 15,000 "Volunteers" to help the Axis in Italy and Russia.

We smuggled about 30,000 refugees (roughly half of which were jews) from France into our country.

My grandpa and his brother burned a Nazi alive that was stuck in a house after crashing his plane. Did I mention they were children when they did this?

Most Nazi soldiers didn't even like Hitler or Nazism. It was mostly just the Waffen SS and even then there were some who didn't like what was going on.

Not that this excuses the genocide and largest war in history or anything.

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 great grandpa had a mining accident before the war, a pickaxe went through his knee, and he sent 98% of his crops on his farm to the troops and the other 2% was sold
he still made ******* bank, on that 2% he made 20 thousand per pound because food was tight where he lived and the towns around it

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 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 granfather went down to Germany in 1936 and watched one of Hitlers speeches and when the war started we pretty much called ourselves neutral and stated selling the Germans 60% of the iron the used during the war. We let their troops move through our country but we also sold AA guns to the allies so we are neutral right?

I wasn't even sure, i should have asked him whilst he was still alive.
From what i could gather he was with the Royal Navy stationed in Malta.

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.
