Yeah, I thought you were focusing too much on the European theatre. The Pacific theatre was just as much a part of WWII as the European one. Hitler didn't have to declare war on the USA. But he did. So he allied his fate with Japan from that point on. As far as Canadian contributions -- they were definately impressive. But to say that they surpassed America's would be stretching it. Canada didn't have nearly the same number of troops as America in either theatre.
