Hoi Coops,

I know, just being sarcastic mainly. I just take a little offense to the PR that states that lend-lease did nothing to help. The M-3 might not have been a world beater, but if used right it did pack a punch and could knock out panzers in service at that time (42-43). Not even T-34's and KV's stopped the Germans in 1942 in large part due to leadership and tactics (IMHO).

Indeed the Russian army road to Berlin on US trucks and also walked there with plenty of US made boots. Then add all the other raw materials, food, etc. etc. Mind you, this support in no way belittles the ultimate sacrifice so many Soviet citizens made.

later
