The UK providing a base for liberating Europe is the UK's only inherently necessary contribution. The rest is just stuff you are attributing to the UK. The tide was not turning when others got involved, please do tell what happens if Hitler decides for some reason to never attack the USSR nor declare war on the USA after Pearl Harbor? What's the UK's path to victory besides preventing invasion of their own country?
This, along with Germany’s inability to invade the UK, was a major factor in Germany’s decision to attack the Soviet Union in 1941 as Germany’ faced an oil crisis ( even with Soviet imports )unless it got hold of a major source of oil outside of its territories, and the resulting oil shortage after the invasion as the German’s used up thieir stockpiles was a major reason the invasion failed.
Britain’s continued resistance meant that the invasion of the SU wasn’t just something Hitler wanted to do, he needed to do it as well.
