This chapter discusses the changes in British defence policy from 1938–40. It shows that during this period, Britain grappled with the challenge of maintaining a great Fleet and an immense Air Force to sustain the dislocation of continued bombardment from the air, to provide munitions at a rate contemplated for Allies, while at the same time fighting with an unlimited Army on the continent backed by an unlimited supply of materials.

Keywords:   British military power, economic limitations, defence policy
