Sorry to quote myself, but the highlighted part bothers me the most. We're told that one can't win a two-front war: that was the main point
of episode 28 (Hitler Double Downs
) where the German High Command argue about whether to finish the job in the West by invading Britain or to start a two-front war by invading Russia.
Hell, one of the characters even referenced the last time that Germany got into a two-front war: Even though they won one of the fronts, they still lost the war!
So the audience has been primed to believe that a two-front war is unwinnable, and the results of the German experience seems to bear them out, especially during episodes 36 (Trouble in Moscow
), 44-49 (the Stalingrad sequence), and thereafter, right?
WRONG! Apparently the US (who I consider to be the true Mary Sue of the series) can do what the Germans cannot and win, not only a two front war, but a two front war fought thousands of miles away from the home country.
Not to mention the fact that they were in a Depression like 3 years prior.
Like I said: not enough
in the world for that one.
