I agree with the earlier reviewer who describes this as a phd thesis. It is still a good read and the thesis it advances that it was a heavily armed and very rich nation backed by multiple allies that entered WW2 because it chose to and expected to win . Not a weak nation with no other choice that was dependent on others to stop it being defeated. Reading this I thought repeatedly of Athur C Clarke in his early short fiction he has the 3 wartime allies and Britain is very much a co-equal.
This read like a PhD thesis and at times was an economic and mathematical nightmare. A pity, because I thought that this would be very interesting. If you're doing research & can dip in & out, it may be the only way to read this. I would seriously avoid.
