The loan of weapons 'Lend Lease' and the extra man power all helped but it was just 2 years too late really. Many Americans will say that the loan of weapons stopped an invasion of Britain but thats just not true and a very ignorant statement to make. Lend Lease did not take place untill March 1941, Britain had already fought off an invasion in the Battle of Britain which ended on October 1940 almost 6 months before Lend Lease even started. The Battle of Britain was to pave way for a planned invasion of Britain (Operation Sealion) to stand any chance of pulling Operation Sealion off Hitler needed air and sea superiority but he lost the Battle of Britain to Britain. Hitler had 4000 planes,many were destroyed invading Poland and France then Britain destroyed over 1,700 in the Battle of Britain. After the Battle of Britain Britain was safe from any invasion. Hitlers Military advisors warned Hitler that an invasion of Britain was not possible and a suicide mission so Operation Sealion was canceled and they moved on to Russia with planes they borrowed from Italy. Then 6 months later Lend Lease started and a 1/4 of Britains weapons were on loan,but in return Britain gave US troops training for D-day.

D-day was roughly 83,000 American troops 67,000 British 23,000 Canadian then Polish,French,Australian,New Zealand and many other countries were there too. Over half the ships and planes on D-day were French and British. D-day was planned and led by 5 British Generals and 1 American General.

America took care of the Japanese with allied help but Japan wasnt really much of a problem for Europe. America indeed to play a significant role in WW2 but other countries played much bigger roles. For instance Britain was bombing Germany just as bad as Germany bombed Britain a full year and a half before America even entered the War, 75% of Berlin was bombed which played a huge role in making it possible for Russia to invade Berlin. It was Polish intelligence Britain used to crack the Enigma Code, the Enigma code shaved 2yrs off the war saved millions of lives and made the war much easier from then on as it gave away all of Hitlers plans and posts etc. Most of Hitlers 4000 planes were destroyed by European forces before American even entered, same thing goes for Hitlers Navy and Troops. Hitler had 5 to 6 million troops,many of these were killed invading Europe (Poland,France,Russia, Battle of Britain etc)

End of the Day WW2 was a 'WORLD' effort and many countries did their bit and played significant roles
