I don't know if you are ever going to see this. I've been listening to your podcast for awhile, and have been working my way up to the present day casts.

You talked about myth making about World War 2. I just want to say one of the biggest myths is Soviet inevitability. The key contributing factors to their victory was the vast amount of raw materials and other resources coming from the United States. Without this it would not have been as inevitable as it seems today. So our contributions on the eastern front was as critical as it was in other theaters of the war.
