Thats the popular anglo-saxon version. But it misses some important points in this topic Brits prefer to hide.
It's well know the US had little impact on WWI. Are you saying this too is true for the UK? :?:
US kept Britain supplied and in the end started to supply soldiers too. Germany was at the end of its capabilities.

Look up how many tanks and aircraft Britain manufactured during WW1. Look at their casualties (whole British empire) and compare to French. It wasn't such a big difference. 1 million lost vs 1.3 French. Look at population of British empire. Then resume laughing

British empire is gone, and Britains influence with it. EU can deal with Britain as it pleases. Get on with it.
Even little Junker from unimportant Luxemburg can boss Britain around now:
