I included the five statements I was not sure of. Thank you for helping me.

1) The turning point of World War II came in 1941: Hitler, ignoring his pact, attacked Russia in June, and the Japanese, in December, attacked the American naval base of Pearl Harbour, forcing the United States to enter the war.
2) The was also raged in North-Africa, where the British General Montgomery obtained a decisive victory at El Alamein, in November 1942, over the German General Rommel, and in Russia, where the Germans advanced victoriously as far as Stalingrad.
3) But here the Russians resisted heroically, and transformed their retreat into victory in February 1943, compelling Germans and Italians to withdraw, leaving thousands and thousands of soldiers under the snow of the terrible Russian winter.
4) Italy was invaded by the Allies in 1943; the Fascist Government was overthrown, but the Germans resisted strongly, and the Allies managed to reach the north of Italy only in the spring of 1945.
5) On the 6th of June 1944 (D-Day), the Allied invaded Normandy, liberated Paris and reached the Rhine; Americans and Russians met at the Elbe, and in May 1945 the war in Europe was over.

    5) On the 6th of June 1944 (D-Day), the Allied invaded Normandy, eventually liberating Paris and reaching the Rhine; Americans and Russians met at the Elbe, and in May 1945, the war in Europe was over.

    [But my dad didn't get back home (to Nevada) until August, 1945. I wonder what took so long!!]
