Who Lost World War II? The West

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Who really won the war? Certainly the Soviets, who, after losses in the millions from the Nazi invasion, ended up occupying Berlin, having annexed the Baltic states and turned Eastern Europe into a Soviet base camp. The Americans, who stayed out longest, ended the war with the least losses of any great power. Indeed, the two wars between 1914 and 1945 may be seen as the Great Civil War of the West, the Thirty Years War of Western Civilization that culminated in the loss of all the Western empires and the ultimate conquest of the West by the liberated peoples of their former colonies.
