The Germans were slowly invading the Soviet Union, but once they reached Stalingrad the Russians had built up defenses against the Germans and after a long battle Russia came out on top. This was one of the biggest battles of the war because it stopped the German invasion in the Soviet Union; which was important for the Allies because the war was then in their favor. Battle of Midway This battle was fought near a United States mid-pacific base on June 4-7, 1942. Japan went to attack this U.S. base, however America already knew they would be attacking so they prepared themselves and destroyed many of Japans needed fleet carriers. This battle was very important for the Allies because the two ocean fleets became equal and now The United States was on the offense. This turning point in the war took place on June 6, 1945 in Normandy, France. This battle is important for the Allies because it is the beginning of the end and the Allies win. In this fight the United States and Britain invade Normandy, which the Germans were occupying, and they stormed through all of France taking the country back. Then they prepared to invade the western side of Germany while Russia attacked the east. This battle took place in an Egyptian town called El Alamein in North Africa from October 23 to November 4 in 1942. This Battle was fought between the British Empire and the German-Italian army. The British attacked the German-Italian infantry and overwhelmed them. This was significant for the allies because it helped bring watershed on to the Germans. Pearl Harbor This attack took place in Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, Hawaii on December 7, 1941. Japan bombarded the naval base for two hours destroying naval vessels, battleships, airplanes, and killing over 2,000 American soldiers. This battle was very important to the Allies because it was what brought The United States to the war. In a war, a turning point is the opinion of the observer. It decides the eventual outcome of the war. Most people agree on this event. Ellie DeBrule D-Day
