If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
It was a tough one for awhile there England was holding down the fort almost exclusively but in the end I had to go with the Russians due to the fact that the Eastern Front and the Russian victory was really what ended the war.
There is no way that the war would have been won without any of the three.
A peace accords could have been signed, but the defeat of the Third Reich? I don't think so.
If England would have fallen, I don't think the US would not have had a land base to work out of and thus the industrial machine would not have mattered.
We could have stopped them from expanding out of the EurAsian landmass... but maybe not even then. Africa would have been in doubt then too.
But, Hitler's biggest blunder was Barbarossa. The Soviets get my vote.
As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!
And don't forget the atom bomb. The fact that the US developed that in the war still has implications to this day.

The USSR. My opinion is that if one studies the history of WWII, one will find out that they are studying a history of Russian blood and sacrifice. Truly the scale of the Eastern Front itself is staggering, and it alone would qualify as the biggest war in history if set as a separate war.

It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us - Rorschach

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
