Do you not think the 30 million troops the U.S.S.R. pitted again Nazi Germany had just as much impact of turning the war?
Also have a look at what The U.S.S.R. was producing ? You may be amazed.
Is that true? Depends on what you mean by win. Could the Soviets have retaken and held some of its territory? Most likely. Could they have been able to invade Poland and then Germany. Not likely without the trucks and rail needed to supply those fronts. Most likely it would have turned into a stalemate and lead to a separate Soviet German peace. Likely in that time the Germans would help finish off British forces in Africa and the Mid East and the UK itself without US aid would have been forced to ask for peace. Likely the Germans would take in return for most of the Empire so it could use those resources to prepare for another war with the USSR that no doubt be coming. The Soviets could no more have won the war their own than the US could have (before the bomb anyway). It was the combo of Soviet manpower and US production that won the war. It is odd that when both the Soviets and US agree on it that others would deny it.
"Without American production the United Nations [the Allies] could never have won the war."
Without the B-17s, those raids wouldn't have happened on the scale that they did.
