Quite a bit is, of course, a matter of proportion and nuance.

Let's do some real history here, shall we? American production lines did
certainly serve the war effort; I do for instance recall that the factories
of the US sent precious ball bearings to German war plants during the war.

What they sent to Russia by ship convoy was the odd tank which the Russians
could not use; their T34 was superior. I do recall that Stalin lamented the
fact that the Allies waited so long with the opening of the 2nd front.

What the Americans sent to England was what? British Spitfires and Hurricanes
defteated the Focke Wulffs and Messerschmidts of the Luftwaffe. And in what
year did the Americans start the daylight bombings?

The Pacific. As we all know, there were warnings that Pearl Harbor was going
to happen, but the English - and some Americans - never warned since they
wanted America to enter the war.

Africa. Wasn't that mainly Britain?

D-Day. Yes, some of my friends were there as well. Your point?
