  1. After the end of the war in Europe in May 1945, Churchill planned an offensive against the soviet forces on occupied central and eastern Europe, this to prevent a further advance of communism over western Europe, the very first sign of the cold war. The plan was to launch a British offensive with the help of the allied countries USA, Canada, France, polish forces in exile and POW german soldiers. The total amount of allied troops on western Europe were about 2.5 million men plus exile soldiers and ex-wehrmacht troops (about 100,000 german soldiers). But the soviet numerical superiority was about 4:1 in men and 2:1 in tanks. The planned was abondoned due to the great risk of a new big world conflict and the highly probable soviet victory (who knows) and didn't become public until 1998. This is the map that showed the positions of the allied armies at the end of the war, western allied armies were much less than soviet ones, but each army had a bigger number of soldiers, although soviet total numbers of soldiers was bigger, still had a 4:1 ratio. But the soviet forces had their own allies too, the yugoslavian, bulgarian, romanian and polish forces.
