For example, as I said previously, I had only soviet view on the history of WW2 during education. It is true, when we had been learned that only Soviet Union played central role here.
But my grandfather told me that American land-lease canned stewed meat saved his life, soviet solders suffered from starvation during 1941 – 1942 and even during 1943. And soviet officials did not public such facts. Also, only ignoramus could ignore the fact of using APCs, different modifications of planes and armor which were delivered due to the land-lease agreements to the USSR.
German was scared by Russian T-34 and KV tanks in 1941
Without US supply of over 400,000 motor vehicles, it was hard for Russian to move forward to the Reich.
The allied bombing diverted many German luftwaffe and flak asset to the defence of the Third Reich.(Over 1.5 million people for flak work)
