In 1939, before the declaration of the Second World War, the British Army was a volunteer army, but shortly after war was declrared, it became full conscription.
During the early years of the Second World War, the British Army suffered defeat in almost every part of the war in which it was deployed. After the introduction of mass conscription, the expansion of the British Army was reflected in the formation of larger armies and army groups. From 1943, the larger and better-equipped British Army never suffered a strategic defeat.
