Re: WW II thread
I agree with you. However, there were some Poles and others who fought for the Russians because they actually believed that communism was a viable choice to dictatorship (Poland had been a dictatorship before the war) and others who fought for the Soviets because they wanted to free their homeland and had no choice--it was either fight with the Soviets or live under the Germans. A lot of people underestimated Stalin and his plans for post-war Europe.
The Eastern European soldiers who fought for the USSR made many heroic contributions to the war effort and were just as betrayed as those who fought with the Commonwealth. Very few of them envisioned the future that actually happened.
