Without the food supplies and raw materials to make war from the US the UK wouldn't have lasted very long. We would have starved ourselves to death before the Germans ever set foot on our soil though, that's just how we roll here. lol.
Seriously though, Not a chance would Britain have held out.

I had thought that Russia was massing ,or preparing to so Hitler might have reacted to that.
Hitler is MOSTLY why Germany lost in MY opinion.
Turning down advanced weapons for production in favor of known tech,NOT really listening to his BRILLIANT commanders.
AND finally being basicly insane in the first place.

Survived, yes, speaking German at the behest of Hitler. But let's just not stop with the UK. Would the world not have been in the hands of the Nazi and the Japanese if not for the US? (Actually, they probably would be speaking Russian because without the US entering the fray, The Soviets would have eventually defeated the Nazis and eventually would have marched across Europe (racing through France, of course,) and tackled the UK on their home field.)
Or we can ask the question in another way from the OP's way: How would the UK have survived on its own and that means without the millions of dollars worth of free "lend lease" materials that the US supplied.
This really is a no brain and I'm quite willing to let it go but if not for those that claim that the UK was merely starting to get its second wind after Dunkirk.

No. England was losing badly.
That may or may not be true but they had the Scots and Welsh onside so all was still good.

Lend-lease with England at the time was sketchy and special favors were made simply because US law said that the US was not supposed to extend credit to people. The UK was still in debt to America from ww1.
