Who contributed the most?
    #1661692 - 06/25/03 04:54 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Which of the three great allies, the U.S.S.R., Britain and the USA, had
contributed most to the defeat of Germany in WWII?

Explain your reasoning...

USSR contributed more in lives.
USA contributed more in funds and materials.
Britain contributed more in drive and determination.

All three contributed far more than could have been expected. It was in a way, a shining period in human history.

It was a shining point, except where the USA locked up all the "japs".

Check out this site. This group claims that there was never a German policy to exterminate the Jews. I don't know if they're right or not, but it's a fascinating read...

Holy crap..... are you ALL a bit slow today?

I would think that for people who like to think they have a clue, you would have taken notice of " in a way ."

Since minds are running so slow today, I'll elaborate.

In the face of amazing odds and a horrific death toll, through incredible determination, a country of murderers and scumbags were stopped from killing who knows how many more. It was a period of co-operation we may never see again.

I would say Germany contributed the most to defeat itself.  They over-extended themselves, attacked Russia in the winter (duh! :shake:)and the leader didn't listen to his Generals in the field.

Outside of that i would say that no one country contributed the most rather they contributed differently (see luvdems response, that's sort of what i was going to say.)

I think the figure is something like 80% of all german casualties were inflicted by the russians.

There's no arguing with that is there.

My grandma lived through WW2 and said she had German soldiers comming to her house. They lived there for a few weeks, they brought fruit jam and all kinds of sweets and shared it with the kids in russia. T

The regular German grunts didn't give a fuck about jews or the whole damn war, they just wanted to go home. It's those crazy nazi mother fuckers that started that shit.

It is true that Russia killed the most Germans. Hitler was a idiot and attacked Russia, he killed a lot of Russians cause he and Stalin had a peace agreement but Hitler stabbed him in the back. As soon as the winter came the Germans started to get slaughtered. Russia captured 90 thousand German soldiers, only a few thousand were released, I wonder where the other 80 thousand went? heh

yep, i've seen some say 80 and 90 but my guess is that it's closer to 80%

I was looking for a country by country break down of germans killed but i was too lazy to look, but i found this.
Death toll of WW2
