The same thing we do in every war. Follow Britain like a good little colony.

Came in fashionably late, kicked ass, took names, and saved the day.

We're not such a good little colony.

I forgot that an American developed the bomb that ended the war.

We split the atom, so if we didn't the nuke may not have been developed, so we played a part.

You say that like it was one person who developed it.   
The idea was pushed forward by Einstein, developed by a large team of scientists lead by Oppenheimer, and was funded by the United States Government.    
   
Also the bit I'm talking about, the European front, had absolutely nothing to do with the bomb, it was over before the bomb was even finished.   
   
No, without the U.S.  D-day would have most likely have failed, or never occured, and the Germans would have been left in a one on one zerg-rush with the Russians.  There would have been no second front, and the war would have extended for an indefinite amount of time, with an uncertain outcome.

You say one on one, what about on the western front with Britain and even the French Resistance? Dambusters and several other raids conducted on the German infrastructure counted for nothing? I'm not trying to downplay the huge impact that the Russians had on the war but nor do I think it was a 'one on one' battle.

Fair point. The Guerrillas did more than their fair share of fighting in the war. However, a Guerrilla force is not as swiftly effective as an organized army.

everyone always forgets how much Russia did during WWII, and how many lives they lost.

Hitler still would've lost, he was a terrible military leader and he made a ******** of critical errors that led to his defeat and he would make more.

Whether thats true or not, the war would have been much worse without the western front. Hitlers army was still enormous, and he had a lot of good generals, his own military leadership not withstanding.

A lot of his errors were made out of desperation in the final throws of the war, while others where mistakes he made because he insisted on doing what Napoleon couldn't. (invading Russia, and the British Isles for instance)

I'm not saying he would have won. What I AM saying is that the fighting with Germany wouldn't have ended in 1945.

Did you know that The Germans didn't plan to go to war until 1942 in order to get enough equipment and supplies for their troops? However, the huge welfare benefits Hitler gave the German people in order to win their allegiance forced him to attack Poland and Czechoslovakia prematurely.

It's interesting to see how the Germans developed superior weapons around 1942 as well.
