European powers had a lot of wars in the 18th century, and they weren’t confined to Europe.
Conflict raged across the globe, in what might be called a World War…but we don’t call it that, because we already have a couple of those coming up in the 20th century.
Some call it the Great War for Empire, and some call it a bunch of separate wars, but in any case, all this conflict was important, and you’re going to learn all about it right now.
Note from Among the Fray: Now that we have finished World History, we will be watching Crash Course’s European History series. An episode – in chronological order of course – will be posted with the morning news everyday. Enjoy!
