The Great War that few Americans Wanted

Europeans (and others) like to argue that Americas contributions to winning World War II were not as substantial as the Russians because the Russians lost so many men. What they don’t like to talk about is the tactics employed by the Russians. Sending five boys carrying one rifle between them straight forward into enemy machine guns. That’s going to produce a hell of a lot of casualties.

They also like to say that without Russia, the Allies would have lost. Germany would have won. Why? Because all of those Russian Divisions held busy 100 or so German Divisions. But who supplied all of those Russian Divisions who were fighting those 100 German Divisions?

America. That’s who. The US supplied thousands of Tanks and Trucks, Ammunition and Weapons to the Soviets.

All that and it wasn’t our war to begin with…

Roosevelt had to trick the American people into joining the War by allowing the Japanese to sink half the fleet at Pearl Harbor and then trumping the losses up as if it were a a crushing blow to our Navy. Amazing that those Aircraft Carriers were conveniently out of the way during the attack.
