You do realize that without the Western Allies, Kursk may not have even happened?
And by the way you misunderstood what I wrote, I meant that if Germany had defeated Britain and controlled the British Isles, GERMANY would have pooled its entire effort at the Soviet Union. With no British Isles to act as a giant unsinkable airbase for Allied bombers or staging area for Allied invasion, Germany would not have had to worry about its flank and the 59 German divisions in France and Holland, the 26 divisions in Italy that fought Anglo-American troops, wouldn't have fought them and instead been brought to the Eastern Front.
