    [SIZE=14pt] 70 years after the V-Day people started to redefine the history. So could any country really singlehandedly defeat the Third Reich? The answer is definitely NO. [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=14pt] To admit that the Nazis were defeated by the efforts of all the Allies does not take anything away from the sacrifices of the Soviet Union in its Great Patriotic War. Millions of Russians died so that millions of Americans did not have to.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=14pt] Nevertheless, we cannot diminish the Soviets’ contribution to the war effort, which was vast and decisive. In fact, it is even more marvelous what they accomplished, given the handicaps imposed by their leaders. Without the Soviet contribution, the western democracies probably could not have defeated Hitler’s armies on their own. [/SIZE]
