    SUMMARY

    MUNITIONS $4,651,582,000 NON-MUNITIONS 4,826,084,000 ---------------- Total 9,477,666,000 Note: the figure of $11 billion includes services as well as goods furnished.

    The U.S. Government has never released detailed reports on what was sent in Lend-Lease, so Major Jordan's data, gleaned from the Russians' own manifests, is the only public record. More than one-third of Lend-Lease sent was illegal under the terms of the act which specifically prohibited "goods furnished for relief and rehabilitation purposes."
    It should be kept in mind that Russia was an ally of Japan throughout the war, that it had been the ally of Hitler during the first two years of the war, that its division of Poland with Germany started the war, that it was an aggressive imperialist force that attacked Finland and subverted the Baltic states as well, that it had announced that it intended to take over the world and that most of the aid sent in 1945 was sent after Stalin's February speech in which he said he would continue the war but against the United States.
    Franklin Roosevelt's alter ego and Lend-Lease administrator Harry L. Hopkins, a KGB agent, declared to Russia before a crowd at Madison Square Garden on June 22, 1942, that: "We are determined that nothing shall stop us from sharing with you all that we have." He was not joking.

    But you all know what Stalin will say - they never arrived in Russia, the Russian veterans never saw any of these aircraft or vehicles, they never existed, the numbers are wrong, we didn't send anything, what we did send (which apparently we didn't actually send) was rubbish and second hand etc etc etc.
    Just because all of our boys died getting fresh air to Russia means nothing to him.
    Maybe we should just ignore him and he'll go away.

    PS. Love the 'eggs in the shell' numbers.

    Bloody Hell ! That much!
    In a way I must thank stalin for making me look into this and spidge for adding to it.
    I have learnt lots.
    In a perverse way let's ask stalin to stay and at least I can learn from arguing against him.
    I see he is an actor maybe he was winding us up.(?)

    The U.S. Government has never released detailed reports on what was sent in Lend-Lease, so Major Jordan's data, gleaned from the Russians' own manifests, is the only public record.

    To add a small arms figure to the listings of Lend-Lease equipment.

    From Charles Pate's U.S. Handguns of WWII: The Secondary Pistols and Revolvers.

    Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911/11A1

    British Empire - 40,000
    Canada - 1,500
    China - 2,200
    France - 20,000
    USSR - 13,000


    The following item is not relevant to the thread concerning USSR.

    Revolver, Smith & Wesson, Caliber .38-200

    British Empire - 650,500
    Canada - 13,600

    I didn't have an opinion on the actaul accusation however there seems to be quite a lot of it on the net.

    I see where you got this, from this beautiful Engines of the Red Army in WW2 site, from the links and sources section.

    The actual source is http://www.geocities.com/mark_willey/lend.html and I had already seen it elsewhere in a place I did not like*. If you backtrack a bit you'll reach http://www.geocities.com/mark_willey/

    A bit tendentious, to say the least, even Gen. Marshall of the Marshall plan was a communist according to this guy...

    If you accept that Harry Hopkins accusation from people like these, prepare to swallow a lot more than you bargained for :icon-mrgreenbandit:

    Hi Za,

    Not swallowing it, just stating that there is alot of it on the net. As with many "stories" they tend to result from one site or one opinion.

    People being sympathetic to a cause can often be construed as something that it is not.

    Sorry, 'swallow' was poor word choice of mine. In short I meant that I don't find these particular sources very credible ;)

    There are thousands of these however revealing them and the reasons for their "error" should be discussed to show to others that you cannot believe everything you read.

    The denial pages that flood the internet are a great example.

    By the way, this may have been mentioned in the past here, but I found Soviet War Production an interesting article.

    Kyt has lent me a book on the Indian Army , A Roll Of Honour by Maj-Gen Elliott. Has a short passage regards Lend-Lease convoys from Iran into Russia.
    Hope it's not too blurred.
    I'm impressed by the totals.
    Number of lorry loads 11 739.
    42 840 tons of supplies to Russia.
    Total miles covered by RIASC drivers, 18 000 000.
    A couple of Indians were even awarded Soviet Decorations.
