Will you at least admit that the Soviet Union could have won the war without Lend-lease aid? Maybe not quite as fast, although I think so, but that victory would have been their's never the less.


That has never been questioned. It was still pretty fragging far from useless as some people here like to think, don't you agree?

Some interesting Lend-Lease information. To add to all of this, I've seen photographs from American Fighter factories in WW2 in western New York. They show literally hundreds of fighters in USSR colors being readied for delivery to the Soviets...


I didn't think the US painted the materials the shipped to the Soviets in Soviet colors.


Yes, they did. In the case of fighters at least. I've seen the pictures. It's not propaganda...it's simple truth.

Whether you folks want to admit to it or not, Lend-Lease helped the Soviets out a lot--whether you wish to admit to it or not doesn't matter.

The US did not give the Soviets vast military support, but instead food, supplies, and equipment. I will agree that this did help the USSR alot.

I do. But not in electronic format. When I get my scanner back from my parents I'll post them if you wish. I've also seen similar pictures in several published books. Lemme see if I can find a link.

Well, a simple Google search turns up a few solo shots of US-built planes in Soviet markings, but I found a nice pic in one of the WW2 books I own that might help if you can get access to it, either online or in book format. It's from 'The Illustrated History of Fighting Aircraft' by Bill Gunston. The book isn't filled with minutia, but on page 104-105 it shows a similar picture of the ones I have of P-63 Kingcobras built in Buffalo, NY, for the Soviets. The pic shows what I am saying nicely.

The US did supply the Soviets with thousands of fighters and tanks, and tens of thousands of jeeps and transport vehicles. As well as tons of other stuff.

That said, did this support win the war on the Eastern front? No. The Soviets won that war. But the US-supplied (and other allies stuff as well) equipment did a lot to help things.

If what I'm saying isn't true, then why did Russia agree with what I am saying and also agree to finally pay back the US in lend-lease recently?

It depends what you consider "vast". Lend-lease aid gave 18 700 fighters, 10 800 tanks and 9 600 artillery pieces. 12% of fighters, 12% of tanks and 2% of artillery pieces in USSR army was from US.

West military support was important to USSR but not decisive.

Still these tanks and fighters were not top quality goods. The USSR was given outdated equipment (which they still needed) if the US would have given them better equipment the war would have been over quicker. Instead the US used the USSR to draw Germanys fire.

The US and England gave the Soviets the SAME equipment that they themselves used throughout the entire war.

The US did not use the USSR in any way. They were allies.

Yeah they were great allies. Winston Churchill was just joking when he was speaking agianst communism and the danger Russia was since WW1. Also Cold War was a joke between the US and the USSR were just really friends.

Get real. The Western Allies were allied with the USSR because they all hated Germany. Also if they were such great friends how come the US would not help the USSR or England for that matter when they were being destroyed by Germany.

"The enemy of my enemy is my friend."

The survival of England was the US first priority. Not only were they friends (allies -definition- two groups that will help each other if one is attacked) but the US needed England to strike Hitlers "Fortress Europe."

I didn't say 'friends'...I said 'allies'. And everything you said doesn't disprove anything that I said. I know WW2 history...most history in fact...extremely well. I know why the USSR and US/England were allies.

If the US and England were allied than the US would have helped England out during the first part of WW2.

I know history too. The USSR and England + US were allied because they both hated Germany. If you know another reason than say it.

The US did help out England in the first part of the war. Lend-Lease to England was going on way before it was to the USSR.

The United States was safeguarding Greenland and Iceland and declared a gigantic 'neutral zone' around their coasts (along the lines of 300 miles).

The Americans were using warships and aircraft and subs to support convoys to England--It was two American-piloted planes that discovered the Bismark on patrol, for instance.

The United States gave England dozens of older destroyers to help their convoys as well.

The United States was also supplying Free-French forces in Northern Arfrica and refitting french warships in American naval yards.

The United States was heavily involved in the Atlantic war WAY before it officially declared war.

And yes--the USSR/USA/England alliance was one of a common hatred for the Germans--I agreed with you on that.

These 50 destroyers were relics from the Great War. Also besides asking for money back the US also wanted (and got) a 99 year leases for American naval and air bases in British possessions from Newfoundland to British Guiana in the Western Hemisphere.

I seem to recall England attacking the French fleet so it was not captured for the Germans. If the US did help France they were hurting England.

Do you have a source? I am not familiar with this version of finding the Bismark. I thought it was discovered in a fiords by a Spitfire.

As I said before, although military aid was horrid and absolutely inconsequential, the aid to the commoners was very helpful.

My Grandmother in Kiev still remembers that she would get a package from the USA every few weeks with food and clothing. She remembers that rather well.

Although the lend-lease aid had a minimal part in the USSR's military effort, the commoners benefited.

Also, the weapons sent by the USA were horrible. Anyone remember the Sherman? Soviets called it the "zajikalka", meaning "lighter" because of it's tendency to burst into flame.

Yeah, they were old, which I stated. They were also of gigantic help to the English. It came down to this: Do you escort your convoys with nothing, or something that's outdated but helps?


Quote:

The English didn't attack the whole French Fleet. Nor did all of the French surrender. America took up responsibility to help supply and organize those still resisting.

It was also to protect the huge amount of convoys headed towards england. The fact that it had the side-effect of protecting American borders doesn't take away from the fact that Americans were fighting and dying in the Atlantic way before they were officially in the war.

I'll find a source in a bit and attach it to this post as an edit. Two american-piloted British craft (Cantalonas or something similar) spotted the Bismark.

I assume you are not talking about the France's Mediterranean Fleet which was destroyed by England, or surrendered/captured by the Germans. I know France was a world power so do you know which fleet (and where it was stationed) the US helped.

If the US was 'fighting and dying' before Pearl Harbor they would have entered the war just like WWI with the Lusitania (spelling?). So I guess you don't know of any US ships that were sunk before they entered the war.

Here are some facts about French ships refitted in the US during WW2:

Bearn-Class Aircraft Carrier Bearn (Converted into aircraft transport)
Richeilieu-Class Battleship Richelieu. (This is after the British damaged her and she switched over to Free-French)
Eimile Bertin-Class Cruiser Emilr Berton
4 Le Fantasque-Class Destroyers (Le Malin, Le Fantastique, Le Terrible, Le Triomphant)

Other French Ships that fought on the Allied side in WW2:

2 Duquesne-Class Cruisers
Suffren-class Cruiser Suffren

Yes, but only just. The plans were in place before US entry into the war.

You asked for evidence that the US was involved in the war before its official declaration. I supplied it. Now you say that it doesn't matter, the US didn't do anything? The US was actively hunting German naval assets in the Atlantic and protecting foreign territory from the Germans. The US took losses in both civilian AND military vessels. All of this was before they officially entered WW2.

I've shown you the proof that you asked for, which also invalidated an earlier statement of yours about me not being to show such evidence. The proof id right in front of your eyes. Believe it or not...It's your choice.

What about Soviets? Trained over 250 officers, some that become high ranking nazis, Guderian. NOTICE : This was before ww2.

Made the pact with Germany that split eastern-europe between them, suplied Germans with resources and allowed Germans free hands in west.

And you are whining because yanks did not enter war right from the start?
