Best Answer

Britain didn't "choose" the Allied side. Britain played a key role in creating the Allied side. Britain and France had pledged themselves by treaty to assist Poland if it was attacked. On 1 September 1939 Germany invaded Poland, and two days later Britain and France went to war against Germany. This had the effect of turning what might otherwise have been a local war into a much wider conflict.
