Help to or just help?

Posted by EE on May 31, 2003

Am I right that the British always use "to" between help and the verb after it e.g. "I hope the story will HELP you TO UNDERSTAND the point.", while Americans always skip the "to" between help and the verb after it, e.g. "I hope the story will HELP you UNDERSTAND the point."?
