The Seven Years’ War (The French and Indian War)
This is a 5 page paper discussing the Seven Years’ War. The Seven Years’ War from 1756 to 1763, also known as the French and Indian Wars in North America, was considered the first world war as it found the British pitted against the French and Indian forces in North America in an attempt to gain back valuable trading territory lost to the French; allied with the Prussians in their defence of their holdings in Europe; in an eventual naval war with France and Spain in the Atlantic, Mediterranean and West Indies; gaining lands through the West Indies; and, in India, in battle with the French. Despite their many different battles throughout the Seven Years’ War Britain proved its land and naval strength by capturing French lands in North America, India and the West Indies; winning decisive naval battles with France and Spain; winning lands from Spain in Manila and Havana; and in alliance with Prussia while preserving its holdings.
