From all I have heard and read - there was no other country in Europe so utterly convinced of its own invincibility. Despite the unexpected danger that Britain faced in the second half of 1940 only a handful of pessimists ever seriously thought that Germany could invade. Fortunately, this confidence wasn't ill founded. Though one can point to blunders in the 1930s, Britain had rearmed just about sufficiently in those areas that mattered most. The nation was solidly united from May 1940 onwards and prepared to make immense sacrifices. Of course, there was a huge difference between successful defense and the much harder task of bringing the Third Reich down, but it was a start.

Britain thought so much of World War I that they call it "The Great War". And there has not been a better war since. But since the great war was really a war about nothing, it really was a shabby endeavor.

Because Great Britain fought it, Great Britain won it, and Great Britain wrote about it and produced films about it.
