You could have asked; was any single bit of soviet built kit shipped to the western allies to help in their fight against the germans?did you have rocket firing LST's like the USN and RN did?
That's Okay, Molot makes a M4 Carbine Russian version of the South American Colt M4 Carbine — rifle for hunting boar-15 « Encyclopedia of safety
So my initial post that the Soviets didn't build anything to help the western allies stands correct then?Trials, along with a KV1, here's the link to a blog report Tank Archives: Bovington: T-34 and KV-1 impressions
The last three paragraphs are his, the preceding ones are a summary of a translation of a Soviet report on their visit to the UK where a T-34 and KV-1 were examined by British tank representatives. The description of what each thought of the other's tanks should be taken in the context of this being the first impression of the report writer having talked to a limited number of people for a short period of time. Parts of the report included rumours from people who would not be party to inside information, such as journalists.(...) Keep in mind when reading that website the authors bias.
Barbarossa was delayed for several critical weeks by the Yugoslav/Greek campaign, at least partly due to British involvement.It seems to be popular to say that WWII was won by the United States and Russia, however...
1. Without Britain continuing the fight after the fall of France, all the forces that occupied Western Europe, from Norway to the Spanish border, the aircraft attacking Britain, and the naval forces attacking us, could have been used against the USSR in 1941. Would all those tanks, artillery pieces, aircraft, and millions of men (assuming only a minimal garrison was left) have overwhelmed the defenders?
2. Could the Soviets reorganise their production with aid via the Arctic Convoys?
3. There could have been no Normandy landings with Britain, as a staging post and safe haven for US and other forces, have safely made it across the Atlantic.
4. Could The US have successfully prosecuted a war in the Pacific had the Atlantic/European theatre been in enemy hands?
Would the US have even got involved in the war in Europe if Britain had already bowed out?(...) 3. There could have been no Normandy landings with Britain, as a staging post and safe haven for US and other forces, have safely made it across the Atlantic.
Would not things in south-east Asia have gone down a completely different path if the UK had bowed out of the war in Europe early? Here is one possible example:4. Could The US have successfully prosecuted a war in the Pacific had the Atlantic/European theatre been in enemy hands?
I was thinking the exact same thing. Whether Britain had been defeated (unlikely) or made peace (likely) there would have been no reason for America to fight in a war which had already been concluded.Would the US have even got involved in the war in Europe if Britain had already bowed out?
