What if the US wasn't fighting Japan at the same time either and could focus all of it's forces on Germany?

"Western Europe defended itself bravely, but that's all they did, defend."
-For the most part it seems that to stop the Nazi's from advancing any further. Then in 1944 on the beaches of Normandy the allied forces took the offensive, but I agree the Soviets caused significant damage to the Nazi's especially at Stalingrad.

True, but the West would have been crushed without the Soviets, the USSR did the most damage, and could have won that war single handedly.

No doubt. Without the significant damage caused by the Soviet Union the Allies would have a much more difficult time. However I disagree with you when you say that the USSR could have done it single handedly. First of they lacked the supplies to be ale to fight the Axis Powers alone.Think about this during the war sometimes Russian soldiers weren't even given rifles. Now your taking everyone else except the USSR? That's more fighting for them which means more supplies is being used. Secondly, on the ground Russia was insane. On the sea it was a different story. Without the US to deal with the Japanese navy they could have most likely blockaded the Russian harbors along the east coast. Third reason they wouldnt have been able to win is the fact that without the losses sustained from trying to break through western defenses Germany could have very well pushed the Russians backwards into their own territory. Then you have Japan coming in from the east, and Kapow! The USSR is done for.
