Hitler never wanted a war with England or France. He wanted land, of which there was plenty to the east, and so attacking the Soviet Union was the original plan all along. He spent much of the 30'ies convincing the British to leave him alone or join him. He wanted the British to sue for peace alright, and knew that dead soldiers on a beach would destroy any chance he had of helping them.

As to why Brittan wanted to fight for Poland, beats me. It cost them the British Empire and it wasn't as if their political ideas where _that_ different.
