He starts in Ireland, with the renewed assault of English settlers on the Irish Gaeltacht. Under the (Scottish) Stuarts, England then began a dramatic expansion across the North Atlantic. In America, the Indian Wars, fought with minimal Crown support, helped forge an independent military capability among the colonists- while, in the West Indies, slave numbers and French intervention forced English settlers into a new dependency on the Crown.

In India, the East India Company achieved ascendancy by sepoy armies under British control. These were very different kinds of empire- and a showdown became inevitable. The climactic conflict, the American Revolution, would not only dictate the future shape of colonial expansion, but also decisively reshaped the identities of all the participants.
