Hi everyone. I've just finished a comprehensive study of the difference in fighting power between the U.S. and german army during WW2. The bitter-sweet results have been posted in a fairly short article which can be found here. This same topic was the subject of an entire book by martin van creveld, but I felt it would be good to add my own 2 cents on the matter. I've read alot of different sources but come to the same ultimate conclusion: Any way you cut it, the U.S. army was markedly inferior to the german army in the realm of fighting power. This fact sits very uncomfortably with some jingoists and historical revisionists, who continue to perpetuate the belief that americas forces were qualitatively superior to those of its foes. But as my post details, the U.S. army was deficient in quite a few categorys (like cohesion and command staffs), and these problems might actually have gotten worse since then! All in all, this is a very important subject which has been obscured and swept under the rug by ignoramuses, who would much rather bloviate about the importance of gold-plated equipment. *For those who are curious, fighting power is a military attribute determined by human and organisational aspects rather than technological ones.
