It is funny to hear and read about how my fellow Americans think that we won the war singlehandedly, even though it was the Russians who kicked the Germans' asses and lost the most people...
it,s quite true the soviet union did take the brunt of it.but also you have to take into consideration the allies contribution. the second front[invasion of western europe] was still in the early stages of planning. but they still contributed through convoys/arms etc.also it was the nazi germans who got there asses kicked not the germans.what i mean by this is not all germans were nazis [far from it] same as not all russians supported stalin/communism. there were large groups of soviets[hiwis]who worked for the nazis and there allies they even had some regiments attached to german units.
there were also muslim SS units along with SS units from occupied europe. and even an SS unit made enterly of british[they didnt see action] . the number of german units opposing russia was approx 5 times the numbers facing the allies and true they took by far the greatest number of dead/wounded etc damage fell on the soviet union. if you prepared to sit through it i especially like the personal interviews. there are one or to faults mainly to do with weapons aircraft appearing in the wrong time scale[some hadnt been built].
and of course the weapon that won the great patriotic war the T34/76/85 the best tank [on any side] of the war
