If it took Britain, France, Russia, the US, plus the efforts of the resistance movements in the occupied countries and the free forces outside them, 6 years to defeat Germany, what makes you think that Britain and France alone could have done it easily and cheaply?

Because the German forces of 1936 were not the German forces of 1936.
