  • Expecting to see some description or history of the Soviet's role in WWII, only the first two of the twenty-nine paragraphs even mention it.

    What I don't understand is, even if the government - and by government, we must limit it to a relative handful of decision makers - had less-than-stellar motivations for the war and how it was conducted (at the macro level), and used propaganda to snooker the U.S. population into believing they were ridding the world of some great evil, how does that detract from what the majority of that generation did?
