Ready to join the fight for the greater good? You're the perfect secret weapon to conquer this quiz!

World War Two raged on for 6 years and a day, leaving over 80 million military and civilian deaths in its wake. Eventually, good triumphed over evil - but let's not forget that evil almost won, thanks to some wickedly advanced pieces of weaponry.

To top off all the firepower they had already built up, the Nazis went a step further and created the "Vengeance Weapons." These flying bombs, rockets and cannons exacted a heavy toll on all Allied troops and civilians who stood in their path. Better set your sights on this quiz if you can recall what each of these military monsters looked like!

As Germany began to lose ground in the final years of the war, it struggled to equip its troops and citizenry with whatever arms it could quickly and cheaply whip up. Make no mistake, however, many of these were still pretty formidable weapons. Remember that German "copy" of the STEN machine gun? We've got it and a few other prime examples in here - come check them out!

It might take an expert in the history of warfare to identify all of these WWII Axis weapons. So, it's time for you to step up to the challenge and give this quiz your best shot!
