After World War II, Europe was changing radically, and its place in the world was changing as well.
European powers had colonized around the world in the 18th and 19th centuries, and in the 20th century, it all came crashing down.
Of course the degree of crashing was variable from country to country.
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!
