Not really. An indepth examination would show that the Germans stationed over 80% of their troops along the Soviet border while only 3% on the coast of Normandy. Had the Soviets not taken up such a huge number of German troops and attention the invasion of Normandy could have been a failure.

And yes, the U.S. has come to the aids of millions, but it has also committed certain blunders that it needs to come to terms with. I think this is what troubles many "outsiders" the refusal to acknowledge blunders (see: My Lai).
