Just whose convoys do you think the Americans were defending? And that sounds neutral to you?

The US was not at war. It is easy to understand. The neutral convoys were doing trade.

I mean ripped off in the contributions to the war considerations, covering a topic we touched on in the first page. Yes of course they were part of the British Empire but they weren't English and, as today a proud independent country, deserve to be recognized seperatly. That chart did have a classification for India, but I don't think it was all inclusive. Many served in other British Asian colonies - Singapore, Hong Kong, etc...and in Europe and Africa.
I also indicated the same consideration should be given for Philipines troops who served under the US flag at the time.

As an aside, the graphic in the OP says the Soviets were part of the Axis up to June 42. That would have been a shock to German and Soviet soldiers shooting at each other in 1941.

Beyond that theres also the issue that the Soviets were never deemed part of the Axis even during the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact‘s duration. That pact was always highly limited in scope and nothing that could or would have been considered an alliance. Both the Nazi and the Communists leaderships always considered each other enemies.

This thread appears to be just another excuse to belittle the US.

We're not doing that, so the thread is closed.
