    Ahem. The 'phoney war' was the period between September 1939 and the invasion of France by Germany in May 1940. After that period and before the Americans came in from 1942 the British had plenty of fighting to get on with in North Africa, the Mediterranean and Asia.
    Good point sir! I apologise as i must have not read up on my history properly!

    I stand corrected!

    Best regards

    Just throwing this out there, but most history textbooks say that the Americans saved our asses in both wars.

    I'm no historian though.
