    British technology defeated NAZI Germany.

    The development of RADAR and a recently declassified project called Cyclops ( a super computer that cracked Enigma code, Alan Turing was a member of this project ) won the day for the free world.

    How about those British RAF Spitfire pilots, true heroes in every way !!

    If the British had not won the important victories that they won, the US would not have had a base of operation to launch the Normandy Invasion.

    No, I am not a Brit, I am an American who is willing to give credit where credit is due.

    The British are an amazing and strong willed people, GOD BLESS THEM !

    he he ooh i'm blushing........

    yeah i think the Brits managed some war-winning technological feats -
    major achievments in RADAR, SONAR, anti-submarine technology and tactics, Bombing campaign against German Industry etc, fitting the Merlin engine to the Mustang making it the best long range fighter of the war, helping developing the Atom bomb, capturing (yes WE got it - sod hollywood films !!) the Enigma machine and decoding it....
    Coupled with defeating the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain, Rommel in Africa, D-Day landings and Normandy etc..Italian campaign and the massive Royal Navy, RAF and Bomber Command we certainly played our part....

    just by staying in the war, fighting all alone for a year, ensured a springboard to open the second front in the west........

    The war (in Europe) wouldn't have been won without the British, however it wouldn't have been won without the Soviets or the USA either.......
    That it took all these powers to defeat Germany is a compliment to them really (fighting spirit anyway)......and after the Russians,Poles and Jews the people who suffered most in the European War were the Germans losing some 5 million dead, nearly 10% of their entire population......horrific. (compare that with 333,000 British and 290,000 Americans)

    I heard that the Nazi's begin to recruit 14 and 15 year olds to fight near the end of the war because they had run out of soldiers, is this true?

    oh yeah this is totally true, its a well known fact.
    haven't you seen the film of kids and old men running round fighting Russian tanks in the rubble of Berlin. might have been some even younger than that.

    Pity the war destroyed us as a world power.

    and thanx to the USA for making us pay back every cent we were loaned during lend/lease !! and using it to rebuild Germany !!
    ironic in a way..........the 'losers' were the winners, not the British.

    theres a good argument for the British not to have bothered at all, just made peace with Hitler and **** the rest of Europe !!
    we would certainly have been better off, but thats not how I feel........sometimes you just gotta do the right thing no matter
    what it costs.....so some little twerp like me can maintain the moral highground !!

    oh well at least somebody appreciates us !!!!!!

    God save the Queen etc......

    When USA came to Europe in WWII, France was out of the war, leaving England and the Soviets (who were weak at the time) to fight against Italy, Japan, Finland, and Germany. When we landed in Franceon D-day, we were fighting Germans on a French beach. We were the ones who first got across the Rhine. I'm not going to say that we singlehandedly won the war, but we did play a significant part. To say that we came when the war was already won is an ignorant statement.

    Actually Prime Minister Chamberlain respected Hitler. At the time Britain entered the war, concentration camps were not yet death camps, they were just internment camps. America shamefully did the same with the Japanese and no one declared war on them. It was not a moral war; England did it because they have always, and will always have the fear of a unified mainland Europe. England would have been worse off with Germany winning the war, because Germany would then be able to conquer England. They did it for their own good. America also did not join the war because of the holocaust. Many people didn't even know that the concentration camps existed at the time, and few knew how cruel they were and how large this genocide actually was. This is due to the nazi propaganda; the government controlled the press so little information got out about the camps to other countries.

    usa like i said played a very minor role in ww2
    n this is not true when french were defeated england was left all alone, alies such as cdn, australian were there to fight, unlike americans. Like i said b4 germany was very weak in the last 2 years of war, they were broke, had nothing.

    america = cheap imposter in all wars (bunch of chickens)
    bombing targets that are not supposed to n after bombing they say it was a mistake. stpuid americans!

    No offense intended yo anyone, but Canada and Australia weren't exactly major players in WWII. They didn't have enough soldiers to make a large impact.

    You wanna back that up with some factual support? You have no idea what you are talking about and have probably never done any serious research or learning about WWII. Who broke through the Sigfreid Line? Who crossed the Rhine? Who liberated Paris? We did not fight by ourselves, but we palyed a large part. You are just arguing because you dislike/hate America.

    please go and read a history book, or get yourself a brain, or wait till you're balls have dropped b4 desecrating my thread with inane jibberish. actually, no don't..keep contributing..i need a laff.

    i started this thread to highlight the role of the USSR mainly, but i didn't really need to cos actually most contributers are quite genned up on it. i am pleasantly surprised. that vote is actually quite accurate, altho its obviously very trite to allocate % points in this way.....i know that, but its interesting..least i think so...
