WWII - Germany capitulated in May of 1945.
British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill wanted Britain, the U.S. and 100,000 defeated Wermacht troops to launch a surprise attack on the Soviet Army and drive it out of Europe.
The Red Army numbered 11 million men in Europe.
British and US Armies numbered about 5 million.
Churchill was relying heavily on air superiority and the Manhattan Project (he knew about it) to assure victory.
The U.S. said No. Churchill’s own generals said No. The proposal was scrapped
This plan was only declassified in 1998.
Almost all military scholars say it wouldn’t have had a chance of success. Most say the Soviets would have quickly obtained their own A Bombs and Europe would have been left in radioactive shambles.
I don’t know.
What do you think?
