comment What was the first known war in history?
Wikipedia says: "Mahabharata as a conflict that arose from a dynastic succession struggle between two groups of cousins of an Indian kingdom called Kuru, the Kauravas and Pandavas, for the throne of Hastinapura." All the names and the city name here in Sanskrit, of Indo-European origin. So the war could not happen before Indo-Europeans invaded India. Indo-European unity is believed to exist till 3000 BC. So this war could not happen earlier, but at least some centuries later.

comment What did the technologies of von Braun and other members of the Third Reich contribute to America's lead in the race to moon against Russia?
I don't think it was too widespread for the Soviet propaganda to claim that the US went to the moon because of Nazi help. This is because they would not like much to empathize the might of Nazi science.

comment What historical analyses are there to say whether or not the USSR really needed a second front (D-Day) in WWII?
It is usually asserted that after Stalingrad they would win anyway. The question of losses is another one. I even think they could even have less losses if they were not in big hurry during the Berlin operation (they wanted to take Berlin before the western allies would do).

What do you mean by "needed"? Definitely they would win anyway. But with greater losses but they would have more political influence after.

@Bregalad the USSR was never part of the Axis, it is anti-Soviet propaganda.
