Victory in Europe Day, May 8th, 1945


Seventy years later, I want you to know a fact that will put much of World War 2 into perspective. For every dollar the US spent on fighting Japan, it spent $10 fighting the National Socialist regime in Europe.

Whether the Germans should be flattered it took so much to defeat them, or the Japanese insulted that it took so little, is beyond calculation, but that is the fact.
