Burgoyne’s plan sounded like a good idea to the British, but this action could be argued to be the reason why Britain did not win this war. Nearing the end of the war, the British were scarce on man and supplies. Washington took his army and his French allies to Yorktown and finished the British off ending the war. The most pivotal battles in determining the outcome of the American Revolution were battle of Trenton, Battle of Saratoga, and battle of Yorktown. The Battle of Trenton was not just about capturing the Hessians.
The Kingdom of England was respected amongst the European powers and was a much sought after ally. Thus foreign courts would have wanted Henry VIII' s favour. In 1510 despite Henry's wishes of going to war with France he signed a peace treaty with the French. However he went to war ... ... middle of paper ... ...as not afraid to go to an all out war, which he demonstrated. His tactics to the nobles was drastically different, his father had taken away some of their power and decreased the nobility numbers, the opposite of this can be seen in Henry VIII.
King John was not succeed... ... middle of paper ... ...uccess of the Magna Carta make the Magna Carta such a prime example of Rights and Responsibilities in History. The Barons t ook the fight into their own hands to secure their rights and control a tyrannical monarchy. It wasn't their responsibility to do so, but they did it anyways. Many people would say that the Barons did it because they didn't want to give up any more money to the King, essentially they are correct, but the mark their efforts made on the World outweigh that. They aspired to stop a tyrannical king, and they aspired to gain more rights as citizens of a nation.
Edward invaded France in 1356. Both the French forces and English Forces clash outside of Poitiers, and France almost succeeds, but Edward broke their front lines, and was able to capture the king of France and two thousand French soldiers.

After being pushed out of northern France, Henry VI sent an army to Bordeaux in an attempt to gain at least some territory in France. The French responded by besieging the town of Castillon.
King Henry often uses his tactics to pressure enemies into doing something that Henry wants for him or his nation. For example, King Henry threatens the leaders of France in Harfleur by saying that if France does not surrender, the French will be responsible for whatever Henry decided to do. Obviously Henry would decide to create a riot and make war. This shows how determined he is to what he wants for himself and England. If the King did not show as much determination and willingness to threate... ... middle of paper ... ... smarter idea.
The war was caused by the impressment of American soldiers, blockades on American trade, and Indian slaughters on the American frontier. James Madison launched The War of 1812 so that the United States would not be taken advantage of, but by doing so, he took on an army fifty times bigger than his own. When it looked like America would lose the war, Oliver Hazard Perry turned the tables and won the deciding battle that allowed James Monroe to sign the Treaty of Ghent and bring peace to the two countries. Although the original conflicts were not solved, they dissipated over time. The War of 1812 may not have solved many problems, but it proved to American’s that they could stand together and prevail over injustice.
With the crucial aid of the Stanleys the battle was won, Richard was slaughtered and the remaining Yorkists fled. Sir William Stanley crowned Henry on the conclusion of the battle and Richard's naked body was paraded back to London. It was Henry Tudor's "political wisdom", "notable" experience and his "dealing in time of perils and dangers" with, "great hardiness" (John Fisher, Bishop of Rochester) that greatly contributed to his success in obtaining the English throne. The support, guidance and military expertise form Jasper Tudor along with the financial help from the French king and the support not only from loyal Lancastrians but from the rebel Yorkists, also aided Henry in usurping the throne in 1485.
The King of France gave Henry huge support, including financial backing, and military backing so that he could overthrow Richard III. It is certain that lacking this support Henry Tudors attempted revolt would have been suppressed. Richard did not manage to recover from the usurpation of Edward and after allegedly murdering the two Princes in the tower his reputation had fallen greatly. He had lost a lot of respect from nobles and from the populus. Killing the Princes could be seen as one of the major factors of his downfall.
In May of 1337, the nations were looking for national identity and were attempting to become stronger. This provided the fuel needed for the Hundred Years War that was sparked by Edward III's claim to the French throne. Charles IV succeeded his father Phillip IV the Fair to the French throne, and died leaving no male heir. The 15 year old English king at the time, Edward III, grandson of Phillip the Fair claimed the throne as his own, but the French barons instead placed Charles IV's cousin, Phillip VI of Valois on the throne. This situation provided the start of the war, but was not the only reason behind it.
Also prestige was important for Henry, but more for himself than for the good of the country. Why was foreign military intervention a problem for Henry VII between 1485 and 1509? During Henry VII's reign, he was very worried about the threat of foreign military intervention. He himself had invaded England in 1485 and fought for the crown, so he knew all too well how easily the throne could be lost to an invader. At the beginning of his reign, Henry was faced with the problem of the pretender, Lambert Simnel.
