    What?

    Oh and on a side note, look who's still here. The USA and most Allied Nations...who's not? The Soviet Union. So we must have done something right...
    What does that have to do with the popular discourse surrounding WWII?

    Of course the History Channel will focus on the US's role in WWII. It's an American station with mostly American viewers. A Russian station will focus on Russia. The Military Channel, if you get it, has more about the Eastern Front, and is reletively unbiased.

    And then I'd like to see what kind of literature the Communist Party put out after the War and on into the Cold War in regards to WWII. Point being: Bias is everywhere.

    It was sarcasm. Like, we're still here so we can tell History however we want.

I can't tell you how many times I've been watching something on WWII that gives the Americans most/all of the credit and the Russians little/none (to the point where they might not even mention Russia!), when the reality is that the Russians bore the brunt of the war.

    It would be interesting to see a version of the story from the Russian perspective on WWII (particularly the build-up to the war and the attempts by Britain/France/USA (to a lesser extent) to "aim" the Nazi's east, but I'm not holding my breath.
    The second world war was in part an attempt to settle old scores from the first world war, much like the second Iraq war....
