And so in YOUR words "I hate it when people make an argument without doing ANY research".
UPDATE

A request for tender (RfT) has been released to weapon manufacturers to supply the Australian Army with a new long-range 81 mm mortar. This will replace the UK-made F2 81 mm mortar introduced in the 1960s, which has reached the limit of its life of type.

I think someone's already said that the fiercest fighters are those defending their home territory, whether they win or not doesn't change that. The way an army fights is also to do with time and place, IE circumstances. Hitlers army were roused to believe they had god on their side, then, when they experienced their initial victories, they (and many enemy armies) began to believe they were invincible. With regard to the circumstances, Hitlers generals, when they first entered Poland knew that they were stronger and had the new concept of blitzreig. They also knew that the back-stabbing Soviets were gonna take half of Poland. They absolutely did not have every confidence that the invasion of Belgium and France was a foregone conclusion but Hitler said go, and go they did. They threw everything into the battle, including (and this is often forgotten) mounted and bicycle troops. The German generals completely outsmarted the French and the British Expeditionary Force Command. Also bear in mind that unlike WW1, the British knew that if France fell, the Luftwaffe would come after them. So British fighters, (mainly Hurricanes) were not put at as much risk as the French, and were withdrawn when the RAF thought they'd already lost too many. These circumstance again, forced the French to sue for peace. From then on, the Wermacht truly believed that nothing could stop them. And for a long time, nothing did.
I'll use the British army as my example: as it is made up of different nationalities ('races'), who have the same training, motivation, equipment, and leadership. Despite this, however, the performance of the different countries in war varies considerably, and has continuously followed the same trend.
Using the Scottish and English soldiers here; the Scots have always outshone the english in battle:
70% of the SAS is Scottish
The Scots were nicknamed the "ladies from hell" by the germans (the kilts = ladies), "the highland furies" by the french, "the red devils" by the russians, etc. The english have had no such luck.
The Scots have always been at the front of the british army: they were charged with the most difficult operations in the Falklands (taking on the Argentine marines), chosen over even the marines and paras; the Scots were the first into Iraq (look here, taking into account the recruiting areas on the right of the page [url]http://www.army.mod.uk/rac/Nuclear_Biological_and_Chemical_NBC_/1st_Royal_Tank_Regiment.htm[/url]) they led the british during the imperial campaigns; my grandpa's highland regiment was even made to stay behind at dunkirk to defend the leaving troops, as they were considered 'the best' for the job. Winston Churchill also called them "the finest soldiers in the world" after world war one.
I could go on all day.
You've got your own lysenkoist theories on the german performance in WW2, but explain why they fought so well in WW1, explain why the fought so well against the french in the franco-prussian war, explain how they defeated the romans, when no one else could. The thing is, they've never actually fought badly.
Then, the italians, as an example of the opposite - there isn't a time when they actually fought well. The British beat the whole Italian army in North Africa, losing only 500 men. Could the Germans theoretically have performed just as badly? Nope.

PS, js_bigmac isn't actually funny. It makes you look like a nigel, nigel.

Yep Scotts are tough ...... but you cant say they havent been defeated ..... EVERY one has been defeated .... but scots are formidable fighters no doubt in that.
And true again.... people in my country say that the Italians are the worst soldiers in the world .

Caledonia is the only part of the British mainland that wasn't conquered by the Romans .The Romans had the tactics and equipment . But the Highland Celts scared the **** out of them regardless !
