take a shot everytime Britain is said in this paragraph.
> 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.
