    and focusing ONLY on North America.

    North American sources of course focus on that aspect, because it's part of their history. But there was also fighting in Central Europe over Silesia and Pomerania, in South America (Spain was allied with France, Portugal with Britain, so this was an early "proxy war"), in India (where a fellow named Clive made his reputation, much good it eventually did him), and even in West Africa, where the British grabbed control of Senegal and Gambia via naval assault. It was all very messy and hard to follow, but when the dust settled Britain and their allies had the upper hand.

    Then it's
    Not your choice
    And it's
    None of your damn business!
