One. The Soviets could have done it by themselves. The US could definitely have done it by 6.8.45 without sending one troop over to Europe. If you read this and this it more than appears that just by hanging on the UK would have beaten the Nazis as well.

Had they been fighting in the name of democracy they would of been praised to no end for being the most respectable fighters of the 20th century!
Racialist? But the Nazi's were not Nationalistic. They gassed German WW1 iron cross recipients just for being the wrong religeon.
