Wow, things never change! It seems everyone starts wars, seize a bunch of land and treasure and hope to hold out for a negotiated peace, but they don't learn apparently. Because Americans love to fight, aren't giving anything and when they get bored of the whole thing they end it with fire and brimstone.

So with all your military involvement are you credentials as a Bona Fide Military Historian realistic, or is that the title you have posthumously given yourself after years of reading?
Did you gain said credentials whilst studying within the Navy? If you did, I'd hate to assume- but does that indicate you are an officer?
I respect all personnel whom have served with good intent. if your are this; you have my sincere and humbled apologies!!!!

applying 1 country to 'the victor' of WWII is unjust and unfair. The war was composed of a team. Like in a sporting event, you win as a team, or loose as a team. The Allied 'team' won, which composed of the U.S., U.S.S.R., and the British Empire. also, the victor of a war is not decided upon the casualties of the opposing sides. Both teams suffered great casualties, and in the end, Both the U.S. and the U.S.S.R emerged as super powers.
If not for the Russians, we ( allies ) would not have won the war, same goes for the U.S., if not for them, the war would've been lost, and without the British, guess what, no victory.
( no offense to those allied countries i didn't mention. w/out any of you, we would've lost )
