The US lost over 400,000 men in WWII and the Canadians lost around 30,000...
I have no doubt that Canada contributed much during WWII, but the casualty figures indicate the level of involvement. I think Australia would be the best choice, or Finland, or why not both? :)
Being a Pole I'm biast but here are some facts: -Germans dressed in Polish Army uniforms crossed the border -over 250,000 civilians killed in Warsaw uprising in 63 days of fighting -squadron 303 (Kosciuszko)famous for achieving the highest number of enemy kills during the Battle of Britain -broke the Enigma code and gave the info to the Brits -helped hunt down Bismarck some food for thought I think it would be actually cool to play that side: 1. start out in Westerplatte and get anhiliated, get captured but on the way to a camp get away 2. play a few resistance missions - plenty of sabotage action there 3. fight defending warsaw 4. escape down south through Checholsovakia and endup in France or so
Well, the polish soldiers were not thought to be the "greatest" soldiers of wwII by any streatch of the imagination. Their resistance fighters on the other hand were very courageous, but as were the French resistance. The polish hardly poses any unique equipment either, they used mausers and mosin nagants. Not very interesting. I am HOPEING that Finland, Japan,France and Australia are a part of CoD 3. Oh yeah and what about Canada you say? WHAT ABOOT CANADA??? Nobody cares. They used British and American style equipment. Nothing unique just like the Poles. And oh yeah, remeber Dunkirk?!?:moon::moon::moon: hahaha Go Finland!!! Mate Feed Kill Repeat!
And one more thing, the poles didnt crack enigma codes, we found a complete enigma machine and its CODE BOOKS on a captured U-boat (and not by the mythical "Polish Navy"). By this point no codes needed to be "broken". So.....im not sure what your refering to.

Actually, Canada lost around 45,000 soldiers... but what you should take into consideration is that Canada's population was 11 million at the time, Compared to the USA at 132 million. Huge difference. If you were to compare the death rate per capita, more Canadians died on average then Americans.
If casualty figures are why Canadians wouldn't be considered (stupid thing to go by really) then why would you mention Australia? Australia lost 1/2 the men Canada did. Your logic dosen't make any sense there.

1 post huh? Sign up just to bash Canadians?
The British, Americans, Canadians, Australians and even the free Polish used pretty much the same equipment you ass. But hey... 60% of Britains (also Australia and New Zealand) weapons and equipment was made IN CANADA. Not to mention that 130,000 + commonwealth pilots (including free polish) trained in Canada.
Dunkirk? You know that it was the British and French that were evactuated from Dunkirk, not the Canadians. So if you were trying to entice some anger out of me, you just made yourself look like a dick. The Canadians were at Dunkirk... in 1944, Liberating it. Not evacuating from in in 1940.
Nobody cares? Maybe not an snotty nose little puke kid like you. Get a life.
