During the period of this volume, from 1688 to 1815, three revolutions profoundly influenced mankind and all occurred within the space of a 100 years and all led to war between the British and the French: the English Revolution of 1688, the American Revolution of 1775 and the French Revolution of 1789. Beneath these political upheavals other revolutions in science and manufacture were laying the foundations of the Industrial Age in which we live today. All this time the expansion of British overseas possessions grew: the New World, India and discoveries by Cook in the Southern Hemisphere. This was the time of Marlborough, Wolfe, Clive, Nelson and Wellington, plus the great statesmen Walpole, Chatham and Pitt.
