All three of you are wrong the biggest factor in the defeat of the Nazis [...]

Ultimately, there is only one factor that determined the outcome of WWII:

Industrial Capacity

The US had more of it than Germany and Japan combined, and it was on another continent, untouchable.

Steel, aluminum, ships, planes, tanks ... WWII was all about stuff.

Even the development of the A-Bomb was a massive industrial endeavor. The production of uranium for just one bomb required the largest industrial site on earth at the time.

A factory with 12,000 workers. And none of them knew what they were making:

This is a cool outfit started by climber veterans Stacy Bare and Nick Watson. Supertopo member SteveA and I joined them for a 9/11 anniversary climb of Mount Washington last September which was led by veteran, adaptive athlete and mentor Tommy Carroll. Conrad Anker has worked with these folks a lot, too. If any of you are in Boulder on April 2, check out the High West Oyster Fest which is a fundraiser for VetEx.
