You are right that Stalingrad was a major turning point in the war in Europe.  But that can't be right even if it were the right number of letters because Stalingrad only involved the Soviets (so it was not "the Allies attempting...") and because it does not really have to do with regaining control of the "mainland."  Finally, Stalingrad wasn't one day.

The words "mainland" and "day" should be your clues.  The Allies controlled Britain, which is off the mainland of Europe.  Now they were invading France to try to get control of the mainland.  That means that the day that we are talking about is the day of the invasion of France. That day is known as D-Day.

Thanks! It took off the other ones I was having trouble with - 

7. This "good" policy was America's attempt at building relations with Latin America; it was one of our only policies in the 1920's and 1930's (I thought this one was the good neighbor policy, but it doesn't fit either)

13. The US military plan in the Pacific, especially after the war in Europe ended. Te plan was for American forces to capture islands held by Japan and go around others.

8. The Battle of _____ took place over several years and devestated many cities here. Many children were sent off to northern parts to save their lives. The rest lived in subway tunnels

Could you please answer these as I cant find them anywhere!
