No actually had the war gone longer the Chinese and EEU would've entered the fray to carve up Japan for their own purposes, essentially putting Japan into an all-out free-for-all brawl which was pointed out by Lelouch.

The only reason why Japan fell quickly was because Suzaku panicked and killed his pop which caused them to surrender. Unfortunately for Britannia, this left a lot of larger than usual numbers for them to take care of which formed into strong insurgencies.

None of the other Areas had that problem because they usually fought to the last and get wiped out pretty badly.

As for the knightmares, they were only effective for ground operations meaning that the Britannians were able to establish aerial and naval supremancy in order to land their ground forces for the mop-up.
