Battle of the Bulge? Thats when the Germans attack at the weakest point manned by Americans. The British attacked the Germans around the north of the bulge and helped stop the advance.

The war in the west was trivial compaired to that in the east. Number of Soviets/allies kia/captured in the east 20Million. Germany kia/captured 15million

USA deaths 418K, UK 450K in all theatres. The total number of Germanys facing the 1944 landings was 400K. 90% of the Axis armies were fighting Russia.

As I said, the US and UK contributions were comparatively trivial. The US didn't volunteer to fight either Germany or Japan. Both declared war on the US and attacked it.

Yes, the USA only got involved when the USSR rolled into Berlin. Idiot!

As Russia would have defeated Germany without help of the US, in May 1945 Russia could have simply driven from Berlin to Paris and installed communism throughout Europe, putting allied troops there prevented that. Stalin would have all Germany's technology. Such as the V2. So no space technology for the USA. Whether even Russia could of invaded Britain is debatable. Th 1940 plans for operation Sealion would have resulted in the destruction of the German invasion force.

The USA involvement was not an altruistic sacrifice, it made a considerable profit out of it. and protected its self from eventual defeat by the commiunists.

You have to remember that the US had already
bailed Europe out in WWI. Germany gave up when the US
started fighting. They owed Europe nothing really. Just think
what the people of the US thought when Europe was at it again
only 20 years later. **** em! The US military was itchin to kick
German ass again. Pearl Harbor justified US involvement and the
US bailed Europe out again.

The UK should be worshiping the English Channel instead of
saying, - yeah, we held off Hitler. If it wasn't for the channel
England would have held for 3 weeks - if that.

Hitler never intended to cross the channel (hurt/punish Britain - Yes) but
not cross the channel. The hype was a smoke screen to hide plans
to invade Russia. If he was serious - then there would have been plans to
disable the navy ships first.

The size of Russia , bad weather and numbers of Russian soldiers defeated the Nazis.
They don't teach this in school but Russia invaded Poland in 1920 and got their ass kicked by the Poles. If it wasn't for the US and allied pressure from west, Germany would have held the Russians. The allies weakened the Germans psychologically and similarly encouraged the Russians.

Dogs bark, babies cry, and men fight

In WWII - Polish children also stood up and fought.

as for Poland being half Jewish, again, your wrong from my standpoint.

I didn't say half of Poland was Jewish. I was just stating what most of the Americans I know thought. I was talking in terms of religion btw, not nationality :)

Hitler never intended to cross the channel (hurt/punish Britain - Yes) but
not cross the channel. The hype was a smoke screen to hide plans
to invade Russia. If he was serious - then there would have been plans to
disable the navy ships first.

I got into a huge arguement with my teacher about this. I was saying what you were. :)

Yes, Yes, and YES. US sent supplies which ultimately enable thed USSR to continue to grow in power until it became the "Evil" Red Empire that most Americans hated/freared in the 60's-80's.

why did he engage the "battle of britain" then?

he had intentions to invade britain, but realised it may not be possible when he lost the battle of britain. if the luftwaffe had gained aerial superiority then he may have been tempted to cross the channel.

Hahaha, someone said they in the uk they hate poles. Weird! When i was there, noone ever made a joke about thme or somethnig, pehapps you are just afraid or loosing your jobs? Here in Spain alsmot everyone hates Germans/British/Italian, in the cities where is a lot of them you can't go out in the night, they only make trobule, and British don't even care about learning Spanish, they go everywhere and speak English to everyone, i wonder what would you think if everyone in the Uk started to speak his own language??

I have been in many countries and in fact English people are one of the most hated...

Its true that there are some expats in Spain that dont make the effort to learn the language, but thats just not true of everyone. I speak fluent Spanish and have lived and worked in Spain and I have many UK friends there that also speak Spanish and have Spanish friends. Perhaps you would care to list these many countries where everyone hates the English...

oh and actually many people do speak their own languages here in the UK.. you are making me mad with your ignorant racist views...thank god all Spaniards arent like you, otherwise I'd become a racist too

i dont think anyone would care mate... you'd just get ignored...

the idea for most people behind speaking is communication... english is the universal language of communication whether you like it or not...

English people are one of the most hated...

yup... jealousy breeds resentment...

They already do. There are 400 languages spoke in London every day. 60% of the population are non-Londoners. If you don't like Spain you can leave you know - you are welcome here.

I actually think there is actually very little on this forum Peterweg compared to others. Considering how this forum has quite a few members from different countries.

So to celebrate that, i'm off to my local bar to toast you all.. enjoy your friday nights all.. :)

The majority speak English.

My friend owns a shop in London and foreign people always ask in broken English. They never order in their own language and assume he knows their language - because that would be arrogant. If they don't speak English they point and gesture. Yes Lots of people in the world speak English but that's no excuse to impose the English language in other countries.

sorry was just following the flow

why did he engage the "battle of britain" then?

like a big kid - he wanted to bomb Britain for declaring war on him. He was p***** because they were against his big plan. Very vendictive bloke he was. He actually respected UK - why do you think he stopped the German advance just outside Dunkirk and let the English army escape? Hitler wanted partnership with UK.

i dont think we do...

do

hmmm... english is currently the language of global communication... hasnt always been and wont always be... just becasue its english people's mother tongue doesnt mean that they impose it on the rest of the world...

who is 'we'.. English people? Geographically Spanish is the 2nd most widely spoken language in the world.. after Cantonese (I think).. English is widely spoken in some African and Asian countries because of Colonialism and has become the language of choice for many. It is the education system in many countries that dictates that children learn English.. as it is accepted that this is widely spoken and will therefore be beneficial to those wishing to travel or engage in international commerce...

Exactly.....back when I was in grade school which was many years ago, French was the #1 spoken language in the world.

seems to be what was implied...

which language is the most spoken needs to looked at in terms of mother tongue or additional language...
