The Russians fielded over 12,000,000 men. The US fielded just over 300,000. The European war was between the Russians and the Germans. We gave the Germans another front to have to contend with, nothing more. The largest battles were between Russia and Germany. While we would like to think we were the prime source of the down fall of Germany, it was the Russians that took the heaviest losses and took back the most ground. We did supply the Russians with mega tons of supplies, most of which they still owe us for. But the Russians suffered the most at the hands of the Germans. The Jews slaughtered at the camps still don't make up the numbers of Russians lost at just Stalingrad. It's no wonder the Russians are so paranoid about anybody that they see as a threat...like us.
