In which John teaches you about the Seven Years War, which may have lasted nine years. Or as many as 23. It was a very confusing was. The Seven Years War was a global war, fought on five continents, which is kind of a lot. John focuses on the war as it happened in the Americas, Asia, and Africa. the "great" European powers were the primary combatants, but they fought just about everywhere. Of course, this being a history course, the outcomes of this war still resonate in our lives today. The Seven Years war determined the direction of the British Empire, and led pretty directly to the subject of Episode 28, the American Revolution.

I'm annoyed you skipped the European part of this war, nobody ever talks about it in history classes.

You should have mentioned more of the continental fight and particularly the man of the war, Frederick of Prussia and his space marines, running from one side of prussia to the other to fend off attackers. Hell, the guy deserves his own episode. Who's with me?

A 100 Five this Where This
Is there anything on the British Empire on CrashCourse? I mean maybe I'm biased but he's done the Russian and Ottoman and Mongol Empires, and the British Empire was larger than any of them, the largest in history in fact.

Not even a single mention of Frederick the Great? Probably the most important man in the 7 years war. His name alone would shadow over Robert clives name. This crash course is lacking.

Lol. The European field of conflict was the most crucial and historically significant theatre of the Seven Years War. Yeah, just ignore Frederick The Great-- the guy was a clown. Not like he won any decisive battles that shaped history or anything. Americans make me laugh, but I'm sure you laugh at us too, so we form a good partnership.
