    Russia came swooping in after Germany had been beaten back to its own borders.
    Which border? Not the Russian one. It 'came swooping in' with the onset of attack. Germany's intel was for ****. Russian units were joining the fray, of which the Germans had no prior awareness of.

    What's revisionism is the comic book adaptation of history that has America joining the war fresh, after two years of sitting it all out, and somehow saving the day. Please. You guys only just managed to pull off D-Day, and you only won the war in the Pacific with nukes.

    For the first two years of the war the Soviet Union wasn't fighting Germany either, but rather supporting it. So the US joined the war against Germany all of 6 months after the Soviets. And the Soviet Union received massive aid from the US.

    Pretty well. Apart from a couple of repulsed offensives, the Soviets were in attack mode from the surrender of the German 6th Army onwards. The Germans's defeat was inevitable from Summer-'43 onwards; a year before there even was a western front.

    A pretty pivotal '6 months', considering the span of Barbarossa, and that during that time, Germany got rolled. Barbarossa involved Russia facing something like a dozen times as many units as we did. We only gained a foothold in Europe at all, because Russia dealt such a fatal blow to Germany in the first place. Face it, they could have destroyed Germany alone.
