I don't think that's quite accurate.  It is certainly true that the USSR
suffered vastly more casualties than any participant in the war,
essentially losing one entire generation of young men.  It is also true
that the USSR faced the Germans head-on for longer than any other

But it is is not at all clear that the USSR could have defeated Germany on
its own.  The enormous industrial capacity of the United States was an
extremely significant factor that helped turn the tide in what otherwise
would have been an ugly war of attrition, much like WWI.
