The Seven Years War (1756-1763): the first world war

Dr John McAleer, from the University of Southampton, discusses the first war to take place on a global scale.


The Seven Years War was the first war to take place on a global scale. It was fought in North America, Europe, the Caribbean and India with major consequences for all parties involved. Military and naval victories irrevocably changed the history of Britain, laying the foundations of a truly global empire as well as sowing the seeds of future conflicts. Principal among these victories was the Battle of Quiberon Bay, which is commemorated in a memorial to Edward Hawke in St. Nicolas, North Stoneham, Southampton.
