And where was the bloodiest for Americans, the battle
USA entered the Second world war on 7 December 1941, the day Japanese planes bombed the American base at pearl Harbor. This is the day and the bombing of the database are described in the books and reflected in film. One of the most interesting movies is called the pearl Harbor with Ben Aplicom Alec Baldwin, Jon Voight and other Hollywood stars in the lead roles. In this film, as it seemed to me very reliably demonstrated the result of a RAID by Japanese aircraft when the screen was shown of the sea where the water was not visible due to the floating corpses.
But in fact, dead Americans that day was on the order of less than 2 403 people than the battle of the bulge - 19 thousand dead.

This operation has become a nightmare for 106 American divisions which were caught off guard and almost completely destroyed. The total death toll has reached 100 thousand. This battle is still considered the bloodiest in the entire history of the us armed forces.
It is difficult to name the exact number of losses of the Americans during world war 2 different sources give somewhat different figures but most agree on the fact that in the war the Americans lost 408-418 thousand people including 3 thousand civilians. However alternative sources give just the staggering sum of 1 million people which I think is too much of an exaggeration possible here to take into account and injuries. The bloodiest battle for the Americans was the liberation of Manila capital of the Philippines in the course of this operation killed 37 million Americans. The famous battle of the bulge in
