one thing i've always found rather interesting is that - back then - the british still followed the 'rules of war' at the time. You know, marching
in lines, declaration, yadda yadda yadda, and America ultimately defeated them by going against the "rules of engagement" of the time
Such examples i remember reading would be the Americans ambusing the british soldiers as they walked through a valley.
I think modern ideals go something like this
Great Britian: We're still great, we know it, if you disagree, big deal
American: Ya.!!!!...we're great, and we know it, and you better know it, bud, thats right, we'll come to your house and huff and puff and blow the
damn thing up if you disagree!!!!!!!
America is the newer nation, who's head is swelling with power
Great britian has 'been there, done that' and really just sets back and sides with us so they dont have to oppose us (not that they're afraid, i
just think they dont wanna deal with it)
I love America, but every so often, you have to put a reality check on the things you love, to make sure they havent taken advantage of your
I think americans THINK great britian is jealous that America once belonged to the queen.
But i dont think this is the mentality in London
Just my 2 cents..i hope thats what you were looking for?
