Lie.

The Great War started in April and then in august/ (October I’m not sure) Britain and her dominions started.

But I see where you were coming from and I agree with you, I really don’t like hearing the yanks go on about The Great War. They missed most of it, in turn why do they think they have this right to act as if the were there for all of it. :x

It’s disgracing the memories of all that fought before they joint. :x


yep

&

Austro-Serbian war would later,became the great war.

thu two start dates.

Australia declared war the same day England did. (once England did )

AFterall, they had been left to their own designs which allowed them to build up their military, whereas everyone else had already been fighting for a few years and as a result where kind of running low on things like factories for producing armour, aircraft, weapons, fuel. Modes of transport where destroyed, railroads, regular roads, bridges etc. NUmbers of operation aircraft and armour dwindled, as did the number of skilled practitioners of fighter planes.

The US had zero factories bombed, had all of their roads, all of their railroads, bridges, fuel production hadn't faltered, they had a very safe area to train their infantry, artillery, flight crews, and naval personnel.

So every part of their war machine operated unhindered, unlike all the rest. They came in with numbers, skill, and coordination as a result.

Then to top it all off they relatively single handedly ended the war with the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Even IF the Germans where still in a position to be able to fight more, they would have had to surrender within a month, as this would be far more then sufficient time for the US to transport, and deploy other nuclear weapons on them, at which point in time unless they had their own they would either have to win or lose in a few weeks time. Since victory wasn't possible within a one or two week timeframe, they would have had to surrender or be destroyed.

Sure, but only after the years of hard work was done.

& the bombing of japan.

But thats like punching mike tyson while he's on the floor drunk.

Everybody happened to turn up at the same place & at the same time. ( just lucky )


They actually all showed up at different places, I think there was 5 landing zones? Or was it 4? I can't remember. If this is D-Day we're talking about anyway.


"After all the hard work was done."
No.

The most difficult and intense fighting took place after the Americans joined the war. Not all fought by the Americans, but the worst of the storm started after the Americans committed. D-Day was pretty much the start of the worst from what I read.

Aside from aerial battles, and then I believe that the Battle of Britain would take that honour, in which case the British fought a tough dogged battle to sustain their production capacity of their aircraft and fuel and defend against the Germans aggressive carpet bombing.

Of course not, bro.

I'll happily admit that we did pretty much f**k all for WW1.

I'll also admit that D-Day was NOT the brain child of our mighty thinkers, but a joint operation between ALL Allies, and I'll even throw you a bone and say that Australia was the first one at the water cooler who said, "You know... what if we had one big massive invasion?"

But ours and the Soviet Union's entrance into the whole debacle was when Germany was completely pushed out of North Africa, the Soviet Union, France, and all the way back to its own borders and Japan was sent all the way back to it's lousy little island where we proceeded to throw fire at them until we decided we wanted a bigger boom.

Oh yeah, you guys sure had Rommel down for the count, didn't you? It was Patton that f**ked it all up, wasn't it?

Oh well, at least you have Sicilly and Italy as your conquests.
