All countries tend to focus on their own efforts in a war . That would only be natural . Some in the West do not pay much attention to the huge struggles on the Eastern front . A few facts might put that part of the war in perspective .
"WWII was won by British brains, American Industry, Russian blood." Joseph Stalin.

Soviet Union WW2
Close to 80% of all German soldiers killed in WW2 were killed on the Eastern front . The Soviet Union lost over twenty million dead during the war . If we divide that number by the number of days that the Soviets were at war in WW2 June 1941 to May 1945, we come up with the staggering number of 20,000 people killed per day .
The eastern front was the largest military confrontation in history.
