    Hard to argue with those choices really Owen. These 3 might have a shout:

    1942 El Alamein. First big win for Winston.


    1944 Garrison Hill, Kohima. Japan's largest defeat.

    1945 Hiroshima. Definitely game over.

    I'm confused a bit by that one. Do you mean largest defeat in the CBI theater?
