WW2 Poll


So according to this poll https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/11590755/Poll-US-did-more-than-UK-and-USSR-to-defeat-Nazi-Germany.html

The USA, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Finland all voted USA as the country that did most to defeat the nazis

While the UK and Norway voted the UK as the country that did the most to defeat the nazis

I'm not surprised at USA or UK results but everyone I was I think more would voted UK or USSR or at least be more even between the US and UK

It cannot be said that one of the three did more than the others to defeat nazi Germany. Had the UK never fought, than the western allies would not have had a chance to launch the invasion at Normandy. Plus, the royal navy almost single handedly delayed the axis navies until America and Russia entered the war. Had Russia never fought, than Germany never suffers massive casualties at Stalingrad and Leningrad. Had America never fought, than the invasion of Normandy is never launched. Plus, American factories provides weapons to the other allies. This was particularly useful to Russia and China, as, despite that fact that they had millions of soldiers, were practically throwing sticks and stones at the axis. My neighbors grandfather fought for the red army, and she said at the beginning of the fighting his platoon had two working guns. So yeah. It was the efforts of all three. Plus China, France, several smaller nations such as Canada and Australia, rebellions in occupied nations, and volunteer fighters from neutral nations.

In my opinion, It would probably be the USSR in first because Germany didn't really start to waver until Russia did what Russia did best and gave them a whole bunch of icy cold winter, pushing them back. One reason the allies started the western front because they didn't want the Soviets to control all of Germany, so they figured they would control some of it before Stalin did. The UK was like the last man standing and in reality, they didn't do a whole lot, but just their existence was enough to help. Germany was actually very scared of Britain and would never try to invade it, which is why they only bombed it. Britain was doing what Britain does best: Rule the waves. Germany didn't have a very good navy, and I believe their best shot at gaining control over the channel came in the form of the Bismarck. But that didn't work, and it reaffirmed to the Germans that if they tried to cross the channel, even with aerial superiority, they would just be decimated by the British. This is also reinforced by the battle of Dunkirk, where family fishing boats were able to make it across the channel safely, with the only threat being the german Bombers. The USA didn't actually do much against Germany, because by the time they joined Germany was pretty much-taken care of. Where the USA shines is in the East Asian Theatre against Japan. As far as I know, they were either the sole reason or heavily helped with the taking down of Japan. They were going to Nuke Germany, but since Germany was already taken care of, they used them on Japan instead.

So My ranking would go:

1.) USSR
2.) UK
3.) USA

I will always think that England's shock/horrified face while Norway tries to comfort him by patting his ear (cause I suck at drawing patting his back) to be one of the funniest England drawing

USA did a lot of stuff, including the infamous Capital "B" Bomb. I'm American. Born and raised in the Midwest. We learned the usual Southern History Version of WWII where they taught us "USA!!! USA!!! AMURRIKA!!!! BEST COUNTRY!" and that no other countries could have ended WWII.

I actually enjoy history, though, and read up on WWII on my own. No, we did not do the most to defeat Hitler. I don't know who did, but it wasn't us. We dropped a nuke and fought on some beaches. So did the other countries. Except the bomb thing.

to be honest I find Germany's answers being the most interesting being it was their country that was defeated
the Germans answer 37% USA, 27% USSR, 7% UK, 4% other country and 25% I don't know

The US gave itself the most credit for defeating the Nazis at 55% 11% to the Soviet Union and 7% to the UK, 2% for other and 25% of I don't know
The UK gave itself the second most credit for defeating the Nazis at 50%, Soviet Union at 15% and USA at 14%, 2% other and 18% I don't know so even thought brits voted USSR over the USA it was only by 1%

also, it's kind of funny the UK gave the US twice the credit that the US gave them

Germany gave the USSR the most credit at 27% and the US gave them the least credit at 11%
although the UK gave the US the least credit and USSR the second least amount

I wonder if the cold war might have anything to do with the US low rating of USSR in defeating the nazis

also, I wish we got the Russians perspective on this I bet the USSR would be super high lol
