R U MAD BRO?

Yeah the soviets did alot of work on their end, but they HAD to, their border with the nazis was HUGE, it was naturally a huge fight.

BUT they would not have been able to win, if it were not for THE USA which stormed Normandy along with a few Brits and Canadians, putting pressure on the western Reich.

Dont forget we also helped out in North Africa, and also spearheaded the invasion of fascist italy.



YOUR POINT BEING?

A few Brits and Canadians? That comes across as quite dismissive of the sacrifices made by British and Canadian soldiers - as if they were just a token force.

Erm, the British and Canadians had three beaches at Normandy and it was Monty's 8th Army that invaded mainland Italy.

I really would like to mention the thousands of war items sent to Russia by the Americans, tanks, aircraft, boots, greatcoats, food, there is a website that gives a complete run-down on just how much material the Americans sent to Russia, Britain sent as much as it could spare as well, the poster needs to read the terrible history of convoy PQ17 (I think) in the middle of winter, where a person lasts 3 minuets in Arctic water, where most of the sailors ended up.
As for Russian commanders, Stalin purged all the really officers (had them shot), and at the beginning of the great patriotic war, Stalin interfered in all aspects of military planning, the Russians had to learn the hard way.
I could go on, but whats the bloody point?

A history lesson for you free of charge

The D Day invasion of Normandy, code named Operation Overlord was conceived by Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery

There where more British & Canadian troops involved than Americans

Two thirds of all the ships, landing craft and air craft where British ( i mean British, and not stuff bought at a large cost from The U.S.)
