- MARE PACIFICVM
Given the massive allied numerical and equipment superiority, I would actually argue that Eisenhower's broadfront strategy was the most sound. Yes, it would be slower than a direct thrust into the German heartland, but would involve virtually zero strategic risk, and would take maximal advantage of allied superiority in numbers and industry. The slow pace of the advance would actually be an advantage, because the longer the war lasted the greater disparity in allied vs. axis industrial and logistic capacity.
