No, it matches much more with WWI than WWII. Without Americas involvement in WWII the Allies would have surely lost the war. America supplied Russia with almost all its war needs after the Germans had captured most of the Russians industrial centers in the initial assault. Most of the Russians bullets, clothing, light armored vehicles and steel provided to build the T-34's was American. This was true up until the Russians recaptured their factories and began creating their own supplies again at the end of the war.
Also, America joined the war in 1941 which was only two years after it started, so it wasn't like we jumped in at the end again. If it wasn't for American tanks and men Rommel would have surely captured Egypt and the Suez canal giving Germany access to the large oil reserves in the middle east. Iraq and Iran had already pledged their allegiance to Hitler and promised him large amounts of Oil as long as he could get to them. This would have completely changed the outcome of both the east and later the west as one of the biggest problems the Germans faced was fuel shortages for panzerkorps.
America also gave the British the equipment and supplies to do a joint assault on Italy that the British themselves could not have conducted. America took Italy out of the war and also forced Hitler to redirect troops meant for Russia down to Italy to help them out.
D-Day never would have happened without American support. No other country in the world except maybe Japan had the Naval resources to support such a large beach landing. Without America France would surely stayed in German control until the end.
Finally, we get to Japan who was almost completely unopposed until they attacked America and brought us into the war. If the Japanese had launched a major offensive into Russia at any time after Hitler had invaded the Russians did not the troops to stop them. If we didn't keep them occupied for 4 years the would have been free to do anything
