How the Rise & fall of the British Empire affected the Colonies/Countries in that Empire: Steve Lowe

"History is told by the winners, so the saying goes. So the British Empire, the largest the world has seen, is mainly portrayed through British eyes. We will be looking at the colonies themselves, how they reacted to being part of an empire rather than independent countries, how they fought for independence and how they are faring in the world today."
