Caught the last 10/12 minutes of an Oliver Stone documentary on the history of the US – broadcast on Israel channel 8. Stone articulated something that historians had long argued abouut and that successive American governments were unwilling to admit – namely that it was not the US that turned the tide and won the war in Europe (WWII – 1939/1945) rather it was the Soviet Union and the pure brutally of Stalin’s regime together with the sacrifice of the Russian people that made the difference and brought Nazi Germany to its knees. For me as a history buff – it was wonderful to hear the truth rather than the doctored facts as feed to us. All credit to Oliver Stone for telling the truth.
