List recipients pse send any responses OFFLIST.

Only if it interests you -

Who in your personal opinion was the most influential CIVILIAN in World War
2.
Bear in mind that US leader (FDR) and British (WC) were commander in chief
of their armed forces and Stalin was presumably commander in chief of
absolutely everything.

Say who. Say why you think so (a few lines.)

My wife has never heard of the person I have in mind and I doubt if 1% of my
county-peeples have either.

If I get interesting replies I will send a collation to anyone who sends me
a response.

Hi,

Probably Alan Turing and the rest of the Bletchley Park crew. Also, I would
have to credit the French, Polish and German (the disgruntled guy who sold
an Enigma machine to the French) involvement (esp the Polish) in arguably
shortening the war by several years.

Cheers,
Dan

Would reply personally, but don't seem to have your email address!

I would say perhaps the chap who got the navy code book from that german
sub. Such a shame I can't remember his name - anyone?

That, or the women Alan Turing were hanging around with at the time ;-)

Selecting one will be tough...
Einstein?
or perhaps Fermi?
They made the biggest noise... or perhaps the biggest impact...

As I say this I am looking at my mother's toolbox she had at her job
(Inspector) with a company known as Curtis-Wright. Where they made airplanes
called "Hell Divers".
Dad was a B-17 mechanic.

I'd never say anything like that would I ? What an outrage

My pick - er, Betty Grable's legs in a million lockers and
fatigue breast pockets. Did wonders for morale. The Brits
had David Niven and little Johnny Mills to win the war, but
AFAIK their swimsuit poses were not popular outside the
31st Kings Hairdresser Battalion

(yes, I am aware of HL's invention)
