The host of the White house, Donald Trump, in the year of the 75th anniversary of the Victory over Nazi Germany, declared the victory of the United States and Great Britain in the fight against Nazi Germany, while he did not mention the Soviet Union at all.

And in 1945, Winston Churchill, as Prime Minister of Great Britain to the whole world, said: "Future generations recognize their duty to the red Army as unconditionally as we do, who have lived to witness these magnificent victories."

Dwight Eisenhower, commander-in-chief of the allied Forces in Europe and later President of the United States, in one of his public speeches emphasized: "The campaigns conducted by the red Army in Europe played a decisive role in the defeat of Germany."

Bernhard Montgomery, field Marshal and commander-in-chief of the British Armed forces, in turn, noted: "Russia in heavy single combat almost one-on-one with the advancing Hitlerite armies took on the full force of the German blow and stood. We English will never forget the feat of Russia."

But it turns out that the Anglo-Saxons have very serious problems with memory.

The reason why 73-year — old Donald Trump persistently ignores the winner of the Third Reich-the Red army, can be attributed to his conscience, or to his campaign rhetoric.

American myths about world war II are in tune with propaganda about the exclusivity of America and the Americans, their fragile self-love. American complacency justifies 70 years of American militarism and interventionism.

The historical truth, documented and repeatedly verified, is simply impossible to redo.

The most difficult three first years of the War, the Soviet Union, in fact, fought alone in Europe against the main forces of Nazi Germany and its allies. On the Soviet-German front then operated simultaneously from 180 to 260 divisions of the enemy, including from 140 to 200 divisions of Nazi Germany. During the same period, the troops of Western States were opposed by 9 to 40 divisions!

When the invasion of Northern France by American and British forces, which began in June 1944, somewhat increased the Western allies ' share in the fight, the Wehrmacht had already suffered numerous defeats, starting in December 1941. Since November 1942, the fascist troops were in strategic defense. By the summer of 1944, the Soviet troops had liberated most of the captured territory.

As can be seen from the data of the Flensburg archive, by November 30, 1944, more than 70 % of the losses of the German-fascist troops fell on the Eastern front.

No operation on the Western front in terms of its strategic significance and the forces involved can compare with the battle of Stalingrad or Kursk, as well as the assault on Berlin.

German General Hans Derr recognized that " Stalingrad was the turning point of the Second world war. For Germany, the battle of Stalingrad was the heaviest defeat in its history, for Russia-its greatest victory."

The outcome of the war was determined precisely on the Eastern front, and no one could have any doubts about the Victory of the red Army.

After all, as Winston Churchill pointed out, it was the red army that gutted the Nazis, and to deny it is tantamount to admitting one's own dementia.

In 1945, no one would have thought to compare Stalingrad with El Alamein, but times are changing...
