Oh the great days of old, when the Brits were respectful, Americans were hard working, Canadians stormed beaches with the best of them, and the Aussies spat on the Japanese after the Empire gave up the pacific.

Are you kidding? Canada? What on earth did Canada do in WW2 besides send supplies and a few little ships?

Stormed Juno Beach during D-DAY. Not the hardest of beaches, but *shrug*

You missed when the entire Canadian 1st marched up and down the coast of Britain to make the Germans think there was a full army there. Or when they aided in the Pacific Theater in defensive of America with our Pacific fleets. How about the Canadian pilots who were flown in to instruct the British in what to expect in the arctic flight conditions. Or if we talk D-Day, Canada was the only nation to meet their day one objectives, and the only ones to come close to their day seven ones. Liberated Holland and protected their Royal Family. Canada has a long history of strong military resolve. We took Vimy Ridge in World War One, as well as shot down the Red Barron.


How many of you even realized that, at the end of World War Two, Canada was the fourth largest military power in the world? We have saved more ass around the world than most, and continue to this day. We just don't need to plaster everything all over like propaganda. We'd never march into a war we stayed out of for so long of, and make up the title of Supreme Allied Commander, to make ourselves feel better about it or anything. Or did you all just forget about the fact you kept out of the war for so long.

The united states really did not need to be part of the European theater. Stalin's Red Army was plenty and more to defeat the germans.

I don't think you understand the strenght, size and advanced military equipment the germans had back then. The reason WWII was won by the allied forces was because the invasion in Normandy was specifically timed so there would be a two fronted attack from the west AND the east (Russians) so half of Hitlers troups weren't available.

Without the United States helping on the western front, the Germans would've put more troops into the eastern front.

True, but not nearly enough, imo. The russians were simply too numerous.

They were within 18 miles of Moscow. They should've taken out the British and then gone after the Soviets. Despite Stalin's insane leadership, they would have stomped them in that case. Another reminder: USA was in the pacific alone (With some help from the Aussies even though the empire abandoned them).

Notice my comment said European theater.

Yeah, considering the winter and how Russia is giant makes it hard to take over. If Hitler only waited by not breaking the Pact things might have turned out differently. Too bad one can't tell exactly what will happen in "what would happen if..." situations.

I think seeing a massive wave of troops, made up of people from several countries, would lower the morale of the opposing side...

My Uncle had nothing but respect for the Canadians after D-day.

It's sad, but unfortunetly Canada didn't do diddly squat to help.
