As per usual Britain was found wanting.Frank Whittle came up with the jet engine but it was the Germans who took up with the ball and ran with it while we fumbled about.Our biggest ally was Hitler who believed only he knew how to prosecute the war and made the huge mistake of starting a war on two fronts when he went for Russia[at the wrong time of year].

Yes, all true.  Britain even invented the tank, that the Nazis developed to itís supreme Tigerís that virtually ruled the battlefields when up against inferior, fairly mediocre, British and American fodder.

Thank God Hitler was a maniac who not only created war on two fronts, up against the mighty Soviets, but then declared war on the USA after Pearl Harbour. That was stuuuuuuuupiiiiiid!!! ::) ::) ::) ;)

No wonder when Churchill had the opportunity to take out Hitler in a special operation, he decided he would not as, you correctly say Baza, Hitler by then was a blessing to the Allies and was doing a splendid job in creating certain defeat for his forces.  ;D
