And lets not forget that the nature of war has changed dramatically in the latter part of the 20th century especially. In 1066, you had to beat the other guy at a game of rock, paper, scissors or something like that!!!!!!

That being said, Britain can be awfully proud of its military record over the last 1000 years! Not totally convinced the same could be said for the yanks, but lets give them some time, eh?! Very Happy

Britain have a great millatry history we just had some bad generals at some bad times.

Indepndance war: We are actually quite lucky we didnt win this one otherwise we never would of bothered to get all those other places, Australia would have had about half the population today and the Bush and Blair Family would by the PMs
American civil war: you lost that one :p even thoguh you won

lol, the greatest general they had was Napolean and we still kicked his butt in the peninsular war and of course you can't foget trafalgar. Y'know after Trafalgar I don't believe anyone engaged the british in open maritime warfare till WW1, we had total unchallenged domination of the sea for 109 years!!

Wait, wait wait. You were sterling in the revolution, it was merely luck on our part that we won. Why I constantly bemoan the fact that the colonists were so eager to leave. I blame that devil Osamuel Bin Adams for riling up the populace.

As for the Civil War, I beg to differ. The Union was preserved, and it was not a Pyrrhic victory as we did not slide into decay following it. It truly was a horrible war, but not a remote loss. I would argue however that WWI was a universal loss, except for the Americans, we showed up too late.

the only good thing about WW1 was it taught us not to throw men over a trench into heavy machine gun fire.

The only rivals we had for the sea after Trafalgar were the Americans, we beat them but only in the last battle befoer that they won most of the victorys

Britain have been in 185 wars since 1066 and have won 163 of them, and
has controlled the largest Empire the Earth has ever seen.
The united kingdom is 244,820 sq km. That's slightly smaller than Oregon alone.

America
has been in 13 wars and have won 3, two of which were the world wars,
which they entered late after Europe (mainly Britain)
had carried the bulk of for 5+years alone. America is 9,826,630 sq km, that's twice the size of Europe

Well mister smart alec.
i too am fom the USA and we kicked your ass for idepndence so what now. And for your info England egsisted for almost 1000 years, America for abot 231 so beat that.
And FYI it was you guys who started the War of 1812 (if you dont know what im tlaking about it was a war were BRITAN attacked US merchant ships which really pissed us off. To top it off you burnt the White House down. Shocked )

Please study the war for Independence. as an Aussie, I am unbiased, and I can safely say Britain would have ABSOULUTELY WHOOPED the States, if it wasn't for the French, Dutch and others, if just the Dutch had been on Britains side, the White House would never have been built

Dutch lent money via they're bankers, but it was supported indirectly by the government through laxes in taxes for the companies involved. The Germans were fighting under some random Duke who was pissed off at Germany Very Happy . France was responsible from anywhere from 1/20 to 1/5 of the American Force, almost all their gunpowder, and wwere invaluable at Cornwallis' surrender, because without De Grasse's navy, the British supply lines could have broken out of the siege, possible same story with Quebec

France did not (from what i was taught) have 1/20 to 1/5 of there army. No way. France wouldnt have helped us get independence if 2 factors 1) Benjamin Franklin didnt go over and pursuad the french to help. and 2) if the french were not ticked at you guys for fighting in a war against them for so long.

It's true, France was our army, Lafayette (whom we owe all gratitude) was convincing enough in his requests to the French royalty and traders to send units to help the fight. It was only through clever naval action that the British were defeated. This was something of a proxy war for the French, to revenge themselves for the seven years war. Moreover France was completely in love with Franklin for his charisma and kite trick. Many pieces of art displayed thereafter depicted lightning bolts striking important objects to depict a metaphorical strike of equality.
