    1. Canada was a British crown colony then. They fought under the Union Jack.

  3. This is only partially true. Definitely accurate in regards to the numbers of Russians who died, but there are SO many more countries whose people fought against the Axis nations. In Europe, the Dutch, the Greeks, the Maltese, and the Danish had active resistance movements. Not to mention the courage shown by the Finns and Polish in fighting wars on two fronts.

    Across the world, the Commonwealth nations did not simply fight for the British Empire, but for themselves and their own freedom. Malaysia, Singapore, India, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.

    Other countries were also involved. China fought on the Allied side, and Taiwan had resistance movements too, as did the Phillipines. Thailand, and Vietnam, Indonesia, and many South Pacific Islands.

    The picture should show a lot more flags than what are portrayed.

  4. This couldn't be further from the truth

  5. Though an alliance was struck between Japan and Germany, WWII was split between two separate fronts with Japan being as formidable an enemy as Germany. The layout of the second photo does not accurately represent the distribution of resources, commitment, and sacrifice made by all countries involved in the eastern and European theaters.

  6. Unfortunately, for the Russian people, its government did not have the ability to comprehend that which was needed to provide and offensive front. The United States of America, on the other hand, after being delivered a crippling blow, took a moment, surveyed its situation, then stated, Fuck you, Germany and Japan. You pissed us off, therefore, you shal suffer our retribution. Russia only survived because the United States of America entered the war.

  7. "Russia only survived because the United States of America entered the war" bwahahahaha. When US entered the war, nazi alredy rolled back almoust to soviet border. The most helpful action from US was a Lend-Lease policy.
