I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the main reason that you Brits are not speaking German right now can be summed up in just 1 Word - Detroit! The arsenal of democracy. You're welcome. @)

Gary, you already partly speak German lol, by speaking our English, which has a large proportion made up from German, you're welcome. . . .

Mick, I happen to be 100% German. First generation german-american. Even though my last name is English, I don't have a single drop of English blood in me. That's a long story all by itself.

Really? If Hitler hadn't had 55000 Sherman tanks to deal with on the Western Front, things would have gone much differently in Russia. Any expert historian will tell you that the main cause of victory for the Allies in World War II was the Industrial might of the United States. Even the Russians were taking equipment from the U.S. on the Lend-Lease. Now, I freely admit that British tenacity was a big factor, but without the tools you would not have been able to get the job done, and the tools mostly came from Detroit.

Oil.
Germany was critically short of all the raw materials (and especially fuel) needed to run a 20th Century war. By the same token, Japan was also naturally bereft of the raw materials needed to make weapons
and fuels.
Once the Germans lost access to the Romanian oilfields, their fate was sealed. At the same time, Hitler's absurd make or break vanity project- the siege of Stalingrad, broke the back of the Wehrmacht.
Also, by 1944, even Britain was out-manufacturing Germany... :|

LOL, you guys all have your facts WRONG!

The reason Germany eventually lost the war is really centered around a single event.. The destruction of the only toilet paper factory! Geesh!

NOPE, even you have it wrong Mr Front. . . .

What helped the allied victory the most was one particular American moral boosting "weapon" that was brought to Europe and didn't end up on the British National Debt. . . .

Nylon stockings, need I say more.
