veterans are still alive
What about the millions that didn't survive, or the children that grew up without a parent, or that aj entire generation if men were slaughtered. The war wasn't even fought with honor. Americans went over to kill Natzis, Natzis that were brainwashed or forced to fight. Europe had a destroyed econony, America failed to help our allies right away. POWs were executed, most of Europe was taken control, Germany had a technological advantage. The main reason they lost is because of the two front war.
"The war wasn't even fought with honor. Americans went over to kill Natzis"That's what war is. America wasn't the only victor either in this war, but talking about America, "POWs were executed"Some, but generally the survival rate of German prisoners was even higher in Soviet gulags then Soviet prisoners in German camps. Both the US and Germany had just a few thousand prisoners die under their watch. "Germany had a technological advantage. The main reason they lost is because of the two front war."Germany's technology was good but not good enough. Quantity is a quality of it's own and in a war of attrition you need to be producing things en mass not in high quality. Secondly, Germany lost on the eastern front by 1942, still 2 years before D-day, Germany had many allies, even they couldn't do enough.
Wars can be fought with honor and respect. Rome is known for respecting their opponets when they fought hard and well. Regardless POWs were executed.You are using quality in a different context. I am using it in terms of how well a material is, you are using it in a nonmaterial aspect. Germany had better planes and tanks.If Germany focused on fighting the Western front they wouldn't have lost so many soliders due to winter and would have easily taken UK. You also failed to actknowledge Amerixa joining the war late, over 60 million people dying, destroyed cities and economy.
I'm not saying the war was good. This was a war against a genocidal and imperialist regime, it's hard to respect murderers. "You are using quality in a different context. I am using it in terms of how well a material is, you are using it in a nonmaterial aspect. Germany had better planes and tanks.If Germany focused on fighting the Western front they wouldn't have lost so many soliders due to winter and would have easily taken UK."I understand, but in such a war it doesn't make much of a difference. If I have 5 tanks rated 4/5 stars and you have 10 tanks rated 3/5 stars then the equation becomes:5*4= 20. 10*3 = 30. Thus, I win. Well Germany had already won, they didn't take the UK, but D-day would not have succeeded if Germany had never invaded the USSR.
Yiu just keep quoting me withour any other rebuttal ir comment.Quality and quantity are two different things. You can make up for quality with quantity in war but that doesn't disprive my point. Germany had better technology than America. America only won because kf mistakes made my Hitler in attacking USSR. You also fail to ackowledge my other points, and each time you respond it is less and less. So tell me, what should we celebrate about WW2?
"You can make up for quality with quantity in war but that doesn't disprive my point. Germany had better technology than America. "I'm not saying the opposite, my point is that Germany lost because their equipment was too good and too little. "America only won because kf mistakes made my Hitler in attacking USSR. "Well I'm not discussing victory day as American victory, I'm discussing it as victory for the allies, so regardless in the end they all collectively won. Celebration: The defeat of multiple fascist states. Mourning: The victims of the war and the soldiers who died fighting the axis.
Why do we need to celebrate a victory, war shouldn't be celebrated unless it stops all other wars.
This war stopped two genocidal countries and their allies from conquering even larger parts of the globe. That's why. Freedom prevailed.
As opposed to the Ottoman empire taking over others?:)
Every country in the world is taken by the others.This is how to wrold works. Ottoman is not only nation in the world that conquers other countrys lands. Every nation done it. Europeans dont that to on crusades. Americans took lands of native americans etc etc. But when it comes to ottomans they call us barbarians.
Sorry for misspeeling
İts ironic because people that call us barbarians do the same thing.
Okay, because some people like to pretend that only Europeans did it, when really -- all empires did it.
