***The ammunition was desperately needed to resupply the English homeland after Dunkirk.*** So they came crawling to the US begging...”PLEASE SEND A GUN TO DEFEND A BRITISH HOME!”

That is correct.

However, for two years the British Empire was all that stood between NAZI Germany and world domination.

Nearly everyone expected the British to seek terms after the fall of France.

Most English politicians did.

Churchill refused to admit defeat. His strategy: Get America into the war.

After listening to the most comprehensive biography of Churchill, I lost my admiration for the man.

After saying that, it took an arrogant, genius, talented jerk such as Churchill to hold on until America was brought into the war by Japan.

The Germans were not happy about this! They were hoping for a Japanese attack on Russian ports in East Asia.
