If you had to pick one?
D-day allied invasion of Normandy: Opened up a second front in Europe taking the heat off russia and is seen as the beginning of the end for the Nazi's
Battle of Britain: If the British hadn't held out like they had WWII may have bee na much costlier and even deadlier war than it already is.
Battle of Midway: Typically looked at as the battle that turned the tide of the war in the pacific, when the US destroyed the Japanese aircraft carriers effectively ending their dominance over the sea and air.
Guadalcanal: my favorite campaign, was the first offensive action the allies took in the pacific, and there were moments where it could have easiliy turned the tide back in the Japanese favor, but luckily they held out.
Stalingrad: Very brutal and deadly battle, this stopped the axis advance and also seen as the turning point in the European theater.
Battle of Okinawa: the last big campaign in the pacific was also arguably the deadliest, this is the one battle that convinced Truman to drop the A-bombs on Japan ending WWII.
There are others surely, but to me these all pop out the most to me. What about you?

Honestly, it would be Pearl Harbor. Not because we won some amazing battle against overwhelming odds, it's because we got sucker punched and got the snot kicked out of us. Most of the world was already involved, but once America got kicked in the balls the game changed... WWII wasn't won by the allies because of brilliant battle strategies, it was won due to the enormous productive capacity of the United States of America and the sheer bullheaded tenacity of Americans looking to kick some ass in revenge. Once the Zerg storm started it was trouble for the axis. It didn't matter how many supply ships were sunk by uboats, they just kept on coming. The anger rooted in Pearl Harbor is what fulled the charges up the beach at Normandy and the the stubbornness at Bastogne. It's what allowed leadership to say fuck it drop that motherfucker twice when it came to the atomic bomb. Had Japan left us alone, the fate of Europe may have gone another direction. Sure Russia had a kick ass tank, but Pearl Harbor was where the tides turned... MERICA! :p0
