Could the Soviets have defeated Nazi Germany and its Fascist allies by themselves?

Posted by: PetersSmith

This is presuming Hitler spread east first, instead of west. We are also presuming Japan would be too occupied with China to intervene. The Soviet Union could be arguably the strongest nation at the time. It is questionable if Allied intervention was really necessary for World War II could be won. Some historians argue that the Comintern, consisting of Communist China, Mongolia, and the Tuvan People's Republic.

  • Yes, the Soviets didn't need Allied help. They could have won the war on their own while continuously liberating the East Europe countries.

  • No, the Soviets needed a two-front war. Otherwise, Germany would have completely crushed them.

  • Only if Hitler was stupid enough to turn on them in that scenario. Russia had one thing no other nation had. Russian Winter. The German advance was illtimed. Hitler, as Germanic leaders have traditionally done, underestimated the sheer resolve of the Russian people, and their odd loyalty to a historically oppressive society.

  • Aside from the fact that you suggesting all of Germania attention would be turned towards the SU alone and not fighting a two war front, and the fact that you are suggesting that the millions upon millions of dollars worth of supplies, food, water, medicine, bandages, ammunition, weapons, vehicles out the arse, steel, lead, explosives, clothing, boots, cotton, fuel, ect ect I can keep going that the US supplied to the SU even before the US joined the war which was quite literally (combined with the winter) the main reason the SU was barely able to survive the invasion that actually did occur is now non-existent, no. I don't think for a single second that the SU would have survived let alone been victorious.
