How Great Britain and the USA lost the victory in World War II.

Posted March 15th, 2018 at 05:01 AM by General Winter

These days, when a shocking number of people on this planet possess only the most primitive grasp of the history of World War II and devoutly believe that in that great confrontation, the US and Great Britain defeated some kind of general “totalitarianism,” many are alarmed by any hint of a discussion of the decisive role played by the USSR in vanquishing the Nazis.

How important was the US Lend-Lease?

During the war, Soviet factories produced more than 29.1 million small arms of all major types, while only 152,000 small arms (0.5% of the total) were manufactured by American, British, and Canadian plants.
