12. Anson, Hawke, Pitt and ‘WW1’

Battle of Quiberon Bay

This episode covers what happened during the mid 18th Century and the all important Seven Years War, seen by many as the real 'First World War'.  It also saw Britain become the dominant European power without actually having an army on the continent and the continuation of the century long on/off conflict with France.  The long road to Waterloo and Trafalgar was set.
