Nope, the Americans did nothing during the Second World War. Tell that to the relatives of the hundreds of thousands of dead men who are buried in war graves (just in Europe). Tell that to the long dead who lost their lives storming the beaches in Normandy. Tell that to the troops who fought alongside us Brits in North Africa and those who pushed back the Japs, whilst losing huge numbers.. Those that fought in Burma, Midway and other theatres of war, some of which you will probably never hear of.
But, above all. Remember all those people, soldiers and civilians, the majority who had no desire to fight and die.
Axis troops and Allied alike. Most were just poor souls, dragged away from their families and forced into killing each other. May they all rest in peace.edit on 16/8/2011 by TheLoneArcher because: Spellingedit on 16/8/2011 by TheLoneArcher because: (no reason given)

Absolutely! the Americans should never have bothered... well...
... there were those North Africa, Sicily, Italy, France liberation things, but other than that the US didn't do anything. Oh, there was also that Japan thing, yeah they did that, too, but other than that, nothing. Oh, and maybe we should mention China, just to be fair?
- actually china was an allie..... so that half should be removed
yea cause they are 2nd world countries not 1st world countries
i edited it to make more sense

Try telling this to an American and you will soon be served with a not so fresh saying of "We saved your ass in WWII" or "If it weren’t for us cheap little men you'd be speaking German right now."
