Many historians today, say that the Eastern Front was decisive for Germany's defeat.
In my view, WWII was a conflict were everything was interconnected, hence it was a global conflict. If the German suffered 7 of 10 Army casualities in the East, this certainly has to do with the British naval blockade of Germany, with Germans building U-boats to fight the Western Allies instatead of tanks, with the bombing, with most of the Luftwaffe being lost in the West, with the Lend-Lease to the Soviets, etc.
The impression I have is the Western Allies are having a credit for secondary participation in the conflict, what I belive it's inadequate for their contributions, that were far from just avoid a supposed inevitable Soviet victory with less casualities, since the war could have been much different without them. Perhaps Germany would not won, but it would be at least much more harder for the Soviets won, perhaps impractival, and therefore a draw would be possibility. The same can be said about the Western Allies without the Soviets.
