Oh good, I've made the Tankies mad

I'm serious, I like doing that.

Stalin was a mass-murdering shithead and people need to hear that more.
Man there are some STRONG feelings out there about Soviet contributions in WWII

Usually tied to Soviet body count, which isn't surprising. You can't lose 20 million people without it being a pretty big deal

But.

Body counts are not a determination of success.
The Soviets were able to fight their way back due to Allied investment, Allied supplies, manpower reserves, and national will -- not just national will and manpower reserves alone. Also, that the Japanese did not try a redux of the Russo-Japanese War.
(also, Stalin is still a mass murdering shithead, responsible for between 6-9 million deaths of his own people)
