    Default World War II trivia

    I am sure we have some history buffs here....so here is a trivia question.

    Everyone knows that the Enola Gay dropped the first atomic bomb, but what is the name of the plane that dropped the second atomic bomb?

    What year did America enter the war?

    *Bonus* What year did Canada enter WWII? (hint: It was well before America)

    ....I am thinking something pearl harbor, because that would be obvious...but I think there was a transport ship or two accidentally sunk by the Germans going to England....I dunno if it was a civilian or military transport though.

    Bockscar is correct!

    Finland and Luxembourg?
    *The statements above are my opinions, unless they are links, because then they are links, which wouldn't make them my opinions, and I suppose stats aren't necessarily opinion, but they are certainly presented to support an opinion. Proceed accordingly.

    I think Luxembourg was occupied by the Nazis, but you are close (think of a tiny country between spain and France). And Finland was in a brutal conflict with Russia for most of the war. (but once again you are really close)
