uhu... the greatest american victory is about how the americans had to outnumber the germans by almost 2 to 1 in menpower and lost more casualties then the germans?
sorry you cant take the american battles of ww2 in this,
the americans were known to be lousy shots, many men just fired their guns without decently aiming...
Not exactly their fault, they were just inexperienced and reckless.
another thing the americans were known for was that when some of them were cut off from the rest, surrounded and no chance of winning they would surrender very fast. While the Germans were known to first shoot their guns empty and THEN surrender.
Besides that they more oftenly shot germans and japanese that wanted to surrender (evendo the germans were more willing to surrender to the americans then to the british for some reason) and the treatment of prisoners by americans was also worse then that of the british
