UK was US’ `junior partner` in fighting Nazi Germany: Cameron
America did not actually join the Second World War until a year later.
Washington: Prime Minister David Cameron slipped up when he described Britain as the “junior partner” of the US in fighting Nazi Germany in 1940.
America did not actually join the Second World War until a year later, staying neutral until Germany and Japan declared war on the USA in December 1941.
But, according to the Daily Star, Cameron, 43, told an audience in America. “We are a very effective partner of the US, but we are the junior partner. We were the junior partner in 1940 when we were fighting the Nazis.”
