I have multiple bookshelves full of books about WWII strategy, tactics and weaponry, thx.

You must have a very good job in order to afford all those books! Do you have a keen interest in history in general or just WW2?

I've read this thread. Deidre knows the history.

While also being keenly interested and aware of the many conflicts that became known as WWII, I will only answer specific questions.

The above is unworthy of mine, nor anyone elses time.

Once you have some quality questions, come back.

Unworthy of your time to answer yet still worthy of your time to comment on how unworthy it is. Perhaps the question is not unworthy of an answer, but the one who refuses to answer who is unworthy of the question?

When someone takes the time to ask a legitimate question, we should be humble enough to give a legitimate answer.

That's why I liked Deessee's posts because he gave legitimate answers, and he had a lot to say which takes a lot of time, so he put in a lot of effort as well as sincerity. I didn't really reply to them because there was nothing I really disagreed with.

Banjo, have you seen the color books?

You have not taken the opportunity to ask a question.

I am under the impression this thread is in fact a way for you to argue with members only.

There is a great deal of information available on the web. Your OP is too basic and, as I said, appears a deception.

If you really want to discuss the most written about conflict in history, you should begin by studying some of it. There's no excuse at this time.

Either you want to learn, or you want to pick fights. We are not here to educate or fight with you.

Judging by your original "question", you lack the very basics of this history. As I said, there is much information on the web.

If it was basic enough history then you should have been able to provide a basic enough answer ^-^ which would have taken less time than to argue and declare it unworthy.

Certainly the others didn't think it was a waste of their time to try and answer the question otherwise they would not have come here. It would appear then to me, that it is the person who refuses to answer but still leaves a comment to rebuke the question who is looking to argue.

The fact you believe there is a basic answer shows me you need to study.
Also, it is NOT our job to educate you. Certainly not mine.

Were you serious about this study you would not be questioning myself or others. You would be studying. As it is, it appears to be as I originally thought; you wish to pick fights and troll an atheist forum.

Good luck. We've seen it all before.

If there is no basic answer, then it is not a basic question.

If we did not come here to educate others or ourselves get educated, what would the point be of going on a forum? Especially one that has already dedicated itself to thinking, IE (thethinkingatheist).

What you are doing right now is ad hominem which is a logical fallacy.

Discounting the question in an assumption of my character.

You see here is the problem. You have not asked a question. You have alluded to a broad topic with many complex issues and events.

If you would like to learn, perhaps join a history forum.

Take the thread title. It fails in the slightest to note Russia has seven time zones. Big country.

I can recommend some books. However these would not be broad spectrum books, but rather specialist works dedicated to singular events. Judging by the OP, you are not at that level yet.

I suggest you google, first of all, how many conflicts were caught up in what we call WWII. Then see how they fit together.

If you are serious, go and study. That you continue to involve me when I clearly have told you to study shows me, from long experience, you are more interested in arguing.

Basic histories of WWII are long in my past. And after the translations following Glasnost, in many ways I had to begin again for the eastern war.

As a result I am not comfortable recommending basic works.

You are better off at a site such as this.

Oh for christ sakes. I shouldn't speak for Banjo, but I think he's telling you that this was an extremely complex situation and there is no simple answer to your question. As a matter of fact, your question is so simple and very telling, as it gives the distinct impression that you don't understand the Gordian Knot of complexities that swirled around pre-war W W II.

Correct me if I'm wrong, Banjo. I certainly don't want to put words in your mouth......or text on your keyboard.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
