    Alliance Allies

    Entry into WW2 10 Sep 1939

    Population in 1939 11,267,000

    Military Deaths in WW2 45,300

    On the eve of the European War in 1939, Canada only had a population of 11 million people despite its vast size.......

    In comparison, the Russian Military suffered 12 million dead.

    At the outset Canada purchased US$20,000,000 worth of arms from the United States.

    The bravery of Canadian troops contributed to the Allied victories at Sicily and Normandy.

    On the industrial front, Canadian factories built more than 800,000 trucks for the Allied war effort. Many historians, including those who wrote the British Official History, cited Canada's truck production being Canada's greatest contribution to the eventual Allied victory.

    The Canadian industries also built over 400 merchant ships between 1939 and 1945; these merchant ships completed more than 25,000 trips across the Atlantic.

    During WW2. Canada produced more than 16,000 aircraft of various types. President of the United States Franklin Roosevelt praised Canada as the "aerodrome of democracy".

    During the war, Canada supplied 40% of the Allies' total aluminum production. The number for nickel was even higher at 95%. Wheat production was also increased dramatically, along with other civilian products that aided the war effort.

    Canada ran the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, which trained 131,553 air crew, which included 49,507 pilots; more than 70,000 of the 131,553 were Canadian.

    In addition to the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, Camp X was established December 6, 1941 by the British Security Coordination's (BSC) chief, Sir William Stephenson, a Canadian from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and a close confidante of Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The camp was originally designed to link Britain and the United States at a time when the US was forbidden by the Neutrality Act to be directly involved in World War II.

    The story of Camp X and Willian Stephenson is captured in the ww2 classic biography "A Man Called Intrepid" by William Stevenson, another Canadian.

    "that guy" should take a history lesson. Canada declared war in WW2 in 1939, while the US waited til Pearl Harbor and then declared war in 1941.

    The RCN, RCAF and Canadian Army were all organized, trained and equipped on their British counterparts. The ties of Empire and Commonwealth were MUCH closer 60 years ago then now. Based on their lineage, the tactics employed by each service were also based on the "book" their British counterparts (and usually commanders-another Empire-ism) used.

    The number one tactic was to send in the US soldiers.
