The situation would be no different if we started off with a non Nuclear WW3 and the "Orange Forces" decided to move West across Europe, we would still have to rely on the powerhouse and the good offices of America to provide the supplies required and the ships (from those held in their Reserve Fleets) to form a new Atlantic Bridge. Barring for their interference in the Suez debacle we have a lot to thank the Americans for in my view.
