In part, the answer lies in the fact that both countries prepared for war so late: in Britain intense rearmament and the introduction of conscription came only in 1938–9, in the United States not until the crisis of 1940. But there was another important reason for the Anglo-American delay in opening a second front on the mainland of Europe—British and US forces were also deeply engaged against Italy and Japan.
