    I scored 69 % Poland and 69 % Finland, so I got a tiebreaker and became polish.

    1 I like military marches.
    2 Ammunition should be used in huge amounts.

    This is the tie breaker between Germany and U.S.A, this quiz is really well done!

    I got Finland as first choice, but I'm really curious which description Italy gets, does anyone know? :)

    Your army is the Netherland\'s army. Your tenacity will form a concept in the history of your nation and you\'re also ready to continue fighting even if your country is occupied by the enemy. Other nations that are included in this category are Greece, Norway, Belgium and Poland.

    Well I'm another Commonweather (appropriate for my residence & origins)

    British and the Commonwealth 75%
    Finland 69%
    Poland 69%
    France, Free French and the Resistance 56%
    United States 50%
    Italy 50%
    Germany 50%
    Soviet Union 38%
    Japan 25%

    And I am heartened at the predominance of plucky, determined Poles and tricky, imaginative Finns that fit the subset of BoM'ers that have taken this quiz and informed us of their results... :cool:


    Oh, and Feli? I expected that the quiz would pigeonhole Japan's WW2 army less with the romantic appeal of honor and more with the fanatical zealotry and blind adherence to orders from superiors, retook the test with that in mind and got:

    I tried to avoid fighting and disbelieving authorities - and came up with Italy:

    ----------

    You scored as Italy.



    Your army is the Italian army. You love your country but you're actually not much into the war your leaders want you to join in. Take it easy mate, you can always wait for the twists of fortune and eventually join the side that is winning in the conflict.

    Italy

    88%
    Germany

    75%
    Soviet Union

    56%

    31%
    United States

    31%
    France, Free French and the Resistance

    25%
    Poland

    19%
    Japan

    6%



    ------

    I was curious, so I went to look for the description for Germany:

    You scored as Germany.



    Regardless of what are your political views, you could have made a career in German army. You believe in effective warfare by method of combined arms and superior military training.

    Germany

    81% Soviet Union. I think Italy's description matches me more though. I'm not patriotic at all and definitely not excited about wars or weapons. Hell, I don't even watch war movies.

    Holy cow! Did these guys check out from which country I made the poll?

    Heavens, I didn't know I was THAT much a westerner. Go figure. Guess we're all prisoners of our culture to some extent. Then again, looking at other people's results... :p
