Countries not invaded by Britain. Source of Map:Â
The British Empire at some stage or other invaded nearly every nation on earth. They defeated in war every other country. A good portion of their colonies they obtained by defeating other powerful nations and taking the colonies from them.
Â They took India by defeating the French and powerful Indian warrior states. They took Ceylon and New York by defeating the Dutch. They took Jamaica and Islands in the Caribbean by defeating the Spaniards. They took Canada from the French and consolidated their hold on it by defeating the USA. They took the colonies of Germany away from them in warfare. And so on and on. They challenged and defeated every other powerful country in the world and re-colonized their colonies. If this is what a cowardly Empire succeeded in doing please show me a brave one.
