    Who had the best army in World War 2?

    You'll get as many different answers as there were armies. People will tend to vote for their own nation's army. This is very subjective and there are many criteria you could use to judge this.

    This is politically incorrect, but the answer is:  Germany.  They were defeated because they were simply out-manned and outgunned.  And, failures of their leadership (Hitler) sealed their defeat.

    They thought they could ignore the lesson Napoleon was taught in Russia.  But if they could have held off the Allies for another six months to a year, they could have used their atomic bombs that were almost ready to get the East Coast, maybe to the mid-west of the U.S. from Norway.  (Yes, they were first in that as well as rocketry and jet aircraft.)

    So now we are learning Spanish and Chinese instead of German. :-)

    At the beginning of the war, Germany.  At the end of the war Russia. As Napoleon remarked "luck favors the big battalions" .  At platoon level  I would wish to be with the New Zealanders.

    I go for the German Army.  They have the best army only poor and stupid Leader -- Hitler.  If you read the history books they do have the best and quality soldiers and training.  Plus they have the discipline and equipment. It just happen they are in the dark side.

    I too would say the German Army. Their tactics, especially at the beginning of the war, were revolutionary and took so many by surprise, for example, the way they so eaily overran the French. But Russia was their undoing, and Hitler's underestimation of the Soviet Union's capabilities. x

    I would have to agree and say Germany, just poor leadership and decision making lost them the war. On an individual level I would have to say the British 8th Army's Desert Rats for what they achieved not only in North Africa against Rommel's Afrika Korps, but exploits in Italy, France and Germany.
