Unfortunately, both armies were thoroughly beaten by the superior German Army resulting in the French surrender and the British evacuation from Dunkirk - probably the worst defeat that the… Read More

"710 000 including reserves" Are you sure? The British Army will drop in size next year to 82,000. Several papers such as "The Independent" pointed out that this will be the lowest number ever since the 1899-1902 Boer War.

After completing their tour in Vietnam, the returning "GI's" were discharged from US Forces and… Read More

John Cena was never in the army. Ever.
Haig was a hero because he had the strength of character to administer decisions that no ordinary man could ever make. Also, the British army won a series of victories unmatched in military history.
british the largest ever!!
In the summer of 1940, 338000 British and French troops were evacuated from the beaches at Dunkirk in Northern France after having been thoroughly beaten by superior German Forces. It was one of the worst defeats the British Army has ever suffered but propaganda at the time made it sound like a victory. There is no doubt that the logistics of the evacuation were nothing short of a miracle.
Always. And the Army often come in to help the Marines.

Although the Battle of Dunkirk was one of the biggest defeats the British Army had ever suffered, 338,000 Allied soldiers were evacuated from the Dunkirk area when they thought that they would only be able to rescue about one tenth of that number. The rescue meant that the British were able to regroup and establish a nucleus for continuing the war.
No. The Marine Corps is a department of the Navy. The Marine Corps was started November 10, 1775 at Tun Tavern, Philadelphia, PA. as the Continental Marines and are considered "direct descendants" of the British Royal Marines.

The US Army has used mules in lieu of horses, and to supplement horses since the 1800s. US Cavalrymen rode them, Artillery Caissons (ammo carrying wagons) were pulled by them.

The provinces of Canada were British Colonies prior to joining Canada.
No. You have to be British for that.
Denmark was occupied by Nazi Germany on the 9. April 1940. It was liberated by british army units on 5. may 1945. Denmark was never annexed by Germany, and the Germans never expressed any desire to try and annex Denmark, so no Denmark was not ever PART of Nazi Germany, but it was occupied by German forces.
Britain had a professional expeditionary army in place that it used to pick sides in the endless conflicts between local rulers. In almost all cases, their (military) support tipped the scales in favor of their candidate. This ruler then paid the price that he was allowed to continue to be the civic ruler of his State, but he had to transfer the command and control of his army to the British. This resulted in the… Read More

German General Rommel was clear on this issue. He believed that the British had given the North African Theater a high priority. This was in contrast to the German High Command. Also, the British benefited by having the Royal Navy to provide as much support as it could for the British Eighth Army. Again, in contrast, Rommel did not believe that the Italian Navy could compete with the British Navy. When ever he asked Berlin… Read More
Yes he did. He hoped to join the British Army, some day, and fought in the French and Indian War. During the War, Washington proved his great ability as a commander. In 1758 the French were defeated. Despite his military success, Washington gave up his commission and became a farmer. Then later became a major supporter for the American Revolution.
In terms of caliber what was the largest Field Piece ever actually used in action in a war Was the RA British l8 Inch Howitzer ever used for action?
Answer The British 8-Inch Howitzer fired a round that was 8-in Caliber (or 203mm) and weighed 200-lb. The US Army used an 8-inch Gun and a 240mm Howitzer, which were similar and were actually considered Field Artillery. They had to be assembled to fire. The 240mm Howitzer fired a shell that weighed 360 lbs. Typo-- I don't think there was a British 18-inch Howitzer, except maybe on a navy battleship.
