England may have been exhausted but the US was just hitting it's stride at the end of WWII. At wars end US Naval Yards were producing an aircraft carrier per week, there were battleships under construction, one 90% complete, that dwarfed the largest current battleships. Aircraft of all types were being produced faster than pilots could be trained to fly them. Patton and other American Generals were spoiling for a fight and had division after division of well equipped, well trained, battle hardened and victorious troops. Stalin could have been dealt with. Invading Russia is one thing...throwing the Russians out of Poland would have been another.
