This is ready to call.

BTW, while we are on the topic, do we really need a fricking 10 paragraph trope description?

Nah, I think some stuff can be moved over to an analysis page.

Also, remind me again: Is this a plain rename?

Last crowner established a "Rename this trope to clarify that it's about America winning WWII" and "super trope for all countries and all wars". The supertrope has been YKTTW'd already, so Our Nation Won The War might be the new entry for misused wicks.

Here is the new trope. It's been over a month since Santos made it, so anyone who is cleaning wicks can dump the examples directly into the trope.

This also means we're finished with deliberation, and only grunt-work is left.

Yeah, because of lack of time as well as the YKTTW issue.

A quick but related matter: might it be the place to add the related, and so far seemingly un-discussed way in which works depicting the War in Europe - both Fronts - almost always show the enemy as the Germans and nobody else? For instance, when was the last time you see the heroes fighting Romanian, Hungarian, Bulgarian, Slovakian, Spanish, Vichy French, Finnish, Italian, or Croatian troops? Usually its always the Wehrmacht.

This is has lasted right from WWII - as the Germans simultaneously ignored their allies' contributions and blamed them for what they got wrong, whilst the Allies preferred people to think they'd only fought the supposedly tougher German units.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: America Wins The War
23rd Sep '13 7:21:24 AM
Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
