- Front Lines of the Pig War
I have to remind you that this was 1930'ies in middle of Great Depression and re armamet would be extremely costly for UK (which already had a huge burden to maintain Royal Navy which had been first defence of British home islands and Empire) and there was no real conscript army culture in UK. Last one (Kitchner's new army) was not remembered with fond memories due to Battles of Somme and Passchandalle during World War I.
By the time of the battle of France, Britain is building more capital ships than all 3 Axis powers combined.
