4/5 of all German losses were incurred on the Eastern Front; the west was a glorious side show. My father was a second lieutenant in the US 65th ID, and to this day, in his 90th decade, he is still thankful that the Soviets, not the Allies, fought the final Battle of Berlin.
My grandfather lost a leg to Germans during St-Lo battle.
You guys are taking this like some person assault, heheheh
All side are more then thankfull for everyones help, that goes without saying.
I am making the more then clear point based on data that Russia was losing the war of atrition vs Germany.
Everyone knows that the Western allies could not have taken out Germany solo, but the same is also true of Russia.
Stalins myth of unending Russian manpower was and has always been a big fat lie.
Anyone that can +, - and / can see it in the numbers. It has nothing to do with personal options, German/Russian/American propaganda.
I am just stating a fact of WW 2 history.
You can disagree, but that would be based on option and not fact.
Germany could have defeated the Western allies or Russia one at a time.
Stalins dead poeple do not need to cling to Red myths for fear of getting shot.
This can't be refuted its just the facts.
Fact #1 German population 85 million.
Fact #2 Russian population 170 million.
fact #3 ratio 2 to 1
Fact #4 German KIA 2.4 million 41 to 44
Fact #5 Russian KIA 9 to 11 million 41 to 44
Fact #6 ratio 3.5 to 1 atleast.
Fact #7 based on the first 6 facts that can't be refuted based on data and not old Stalin myth's. Germany was winning the war of arttiton vs Russia. The only thing that saved Russia was England and USA pulling over a million men from the eastern front.
1+1=2 this can't be refuted.
