sure our weaponry was bad at the beginning but hey who won vimy ridge? french couldnt take it brits couldnt take it americans had yet to enter the war... but who took it? us? yep, battle of paschendale ( dont mind my horrible spelling) we tricked the germans in believing we were farther south so they sent troops to reinforce the area afraid of the "storm troopers" that speaks for itself, the way you guys are tought is that you guys came to save the day, but realisticly you still had yet to have good artillery and had no experience in this type of war and british commanders regarded you as a waste of space

edit: sorry if that offends you but im sure the way they teach you in your schools are bias to

Perhaps, but the British wanted us for cannon fodder, the same way they pissed away countless lives in futile "over the top" attacks that had no chance of accomplishing any thing of real value. We changed the game.

Well....

It can be argued that WWI was the creator for WWII however this is really their only link. There's no way they were similar. The warfare, governments, people's views everything was different.
