ok so you've already written off the hundreds of thousands of well equiped allied forces in mainland Europe there were approaching from the West then?

Add to this the resistance and partisan movements would all have been against the Russians.

Then the superior strength of the allied navy and airforce (especially bombers).

I know the Russians had huge numbers of men and tanks but would they have easily swept aside the rest of the allied forces in mainland Europe?

just remeber who had the bomb!

Bombs were dropped in summer 45, war in europe was over by end of spring, so it might have been that the first nukes were dropped on Hiroshima and Vladavostok instead of Nagasaki

Brits n Yanks could have taken Berlin earlier than they did - the germans would practically let them by april, so they could have got all the German industrial planes/nucluer research and other stuff, but they let a lot go to the russians. In a land war in Europe Russia held the best pieces - 50000 T34s against 60 000 Shermans - t34 outclassed Sherman in everything but numbers, more men too - plus the Russians had fuel supplies coming direct over land - US fuel supplies came by boat and the Yanks had only a couple of working ports to fuel their units. Russia may have taken Eruope, but would not have taken America - and probably not Britain due to lack of naval support and the overwhelming air power that the Brits and yanks had - yank factories produced more than Russian - it wasn't till 1944 that Russian tank and arms production out stripped German, but Ameirca had to transport all the goods to the war zone over sea - the one negative factor in their armoury - no other countyr could do this than them which is why russians would never got over the channel

loses on both sides would be astounding though - whichever way you look

Russians would take no prisoners in Europe, Yanks would blow em to hell from the Pacific...grim
