    Yes, it was two A-bombs.

    And don't forget the atom bomb. The fact that the US developed that in the war still has implications to this day.
    If you split it then absolutely yes, I agree. I would also give the edge to the USA for many many reasons....

    The scale was big, yes, but that does not determine contribution. The USA contributed in two theatres of war, lent other major Allies significant and important supplies, was integral in breaking codes that lead to the shortening the war, etc. The Russians just threw tons of unarmed and badly armed men into machine gun fire until they withered down the Germans. That was great, but that was about it.

    On this Remembrance Day, I'll toss Canada into the mix - after losing over 60,000 soldiers in WW1 even though we were never attacked, we entered the fray very early, in support of our European friends, and lost another 40,000 soldiers in WW2.

    Canada isn't just a fair-weather friend and to this day, when travelling in Europe, people will thank Canadians for their ancestors' help in these two great conflicts.

    The UK. They were the pivot; they took the stand from the beginning, they persevered to the end. Not to diminish anybody else's contribution, but the Brits deserve the most recognition.

    (And - again, not to dismiss the enormous sacrifices the Russian people made during the war - but let's not forget how the war had started: with the Nazis and the Commies attacking Poland from two sides.

    The USSR (as the Stalinist political entity, not as a careless nickname for Russia) can take its "significance as an ally" and shove it "where the Sun doesn't shine", as they say in Russia (which means "Siberia", by the way).

    Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders are the most underappreciated heroes of the greatest drama of the 20th century.

    The Soviets. They won the war after all.
