D-Day made minimal difference to European theater.

I thank you. Granted, I kind of spun away from the topic a bit. Of all the things I find remarkable about WWII, Kursk is the most fasinating to me. Stalingrad cannot be ignored in its importance to the Russian people. D-Day in its own way cements the committment to liberating Europe in the minds of Americans, and I understand the cemetaries of the Allied dead in Normandy are still hallowed ground to the French. Sadly, I must concede Stalingrad had the greater impact.

I'm not too sure what you are trying to say but it's pretty well known and documented that the Soviets where facing about a hundred german divisions while the allies in the West fought about 40 of them. Also, it's generally known that the soviets lost the most menduring the entire war, no other nation come even close to these numbers. I'm pretty sure you can find the exact numbers rather easily.
