By that point, they didn't have enough warm bodies to withstand a major invasion force, especially if that force happened to be the source of the supplies that had allowed them to survive their recent decimating debacle.
The Russians outnumbered the western Allies by 3.5 to 1, did not have a war with Japan to face, could bring up almost 25 reserve divisions, the Germans were not going to fight them, the French and British were not going to let us fight them, and our American citizenry with a war to fight in Japan would not let us fight them.
We had no idea if atom bombs worked, and we had no more divisions to ship overseas.
Let's talk real guys.
Patton loved war and Patton.

What a stupid statement. Link?

Happy 4th Jake!!!

In understanding the political realities of war, Patton was almost as bad as MacArthur
Obviously, you don't know Dick about George. All you know about Patton is from the movie
