When Germany invaded Poland the USA was neutral, and it would be two long years before the Americans entered the war leaving Great Britain to do it alone.
Great Britain lost its Empire to defend Europe while America became a super power. Also I seriously doubt Germany would have lost the war were it not for the USSR attacking it from the East after the Germans broke the pact.
hey Ruben....Great Britain lost its empire defending Europe??? Doubtful...UK lost its empire because they over extended themselves over centuries. How dare you infer that America won its superiority at the expense of UK's chivalrous and suicidal defense of an entire continent. The USA bailed Europe out of WWI during many bloody battles. USA wanted no more of their boys to die. We had little reason to enter a second war coming out of a drepression and WWI so recent in memory.
When attacked in the Pacific during WWII, America fought not only a two front war, but also in two hemispheres. USA gained its superiority not by the good fortune of the UK busying herself in battle, but by the hard work, dedication, and pure tenacity of its greatest generation.
