Great Britain was saved by contributions from their empire. Had it not been for help from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, India and others, I don't know if UK would have held out during the years before the US entered the war.
You have been very kind more than once about this Sam. But yes, The US and Canada have been great allies for so long. The stories about US and Canadian (as well as our allies) war heroes are heart warming, and should make us all proud. They truly sacrificed their lives for us all.
