It was roughly worked out in 1990 to have cost $2,091.3 billion dollars which in 1990 exchange rate was about $2 to a Â£1 which would means it would have cost Â£1045.65 bi…llion pounds. hopefully this helps.
During World War II, the cost of living was much lower than it istoday. For instance, gasoline could be purchased for less than 20cents per gallon, bread was less than 10 cent…s per loaf, andpostage stamps were less than 5 cents apiece.
They responded by saving there fod and only eating a certain amount a day. There ration book was checked every day when they got the food. Obiviosly it was very hard so there …response would not of been great.I think some of the people couldn't take it.

it was the Americans. some food went rotten when the shipping companies went on strike. Like in new york the shipping company went on strike and the eggs went rotten, before t…he eggs got to England you could apparently smell the eggs over 5 miles away! yuk! the eggs were put in a ditch and closed up the ditch with cement. the ditch must have been huge!

It was really the other way round. Germany invaded Poland on 1st September 1939. On 3rd September 1939 Britain and France declared war on Germany. In 1940, France was invaded …by Germany and British troops were evacuated back to the UK. Due to strong public opinion, the US refused to become involved in the war but sent food and supplies to help Britain. After the attack on Pearl Harbour by Japanese forces on 7th December 1941, Germany declared war on the US and attacked US shipping in the Atlantic. Churchill and Roosevelt met and agreed to pool resources and that the Armed Forces of both countries would work together to defeat both Germany and Japan which they eventually achieved in 1945.
