this is not aiming for any form of good discourse, this thread will only result in /int/ tier shitflinging
Seriously stop treating this board like /int/ you fucking niggers

well!

Your uncouth language surely isn't contributing to the erudite discourse that we all strive for!

The Russians and British also Lost to them at some points during the Napoleonic wars
>>
>>596434
> at some points
So, losing even one fist-fight against a Frenchman qualifies as "losing to France"?
>>
>>596457

>the Napoleonic Wars were a singular event

there were like 7 of them.

>>596495

the anglos needed to form 7 coalitions to unseat the french

Pierre, you are definitely the woman in our relationship. Only girls are bitchy the way you are.

Not sure if you can call having half of your country conquered and taking a century to take it back - and then not even getting all of it - can be considered a victory.
>>
>>597165

>this nigga

First of all, i t wasnt conquered, it was inherited by the english king.
Second, they did take everything back.
Third, the eternal anglo lost Orleans to a 14yr old girl in a dress and armor.
>>
>>597150
>Primacy in Europe through the long 19th

Prussia
Britain was only relevant among the african tribes it massacred
>>
Italy
>>
>>597297
>i t wasnt conquered, it was inherited by the english king.
He inherited it according to the English but the French didn't recognise his claim. By your logic the entire kingdom of France was inherited by the English king and thus England won because France ceased to exist as an independent entity, which was the English goal. In reality because the French didn't recognise the English sovereignty they went to war, half the kingdom was conquered by the English for decades and decades, and in the end most of it was re-conquered by the French.
>Second, they did take everything back.
Not the Pale of Calais or the Channel Islands.
>Third, the eternal anglo lost Orleans to a 14yr old girl in a dress and armor.
Or you could look at it as that France needed a 14 year-old girl to win a war.
>>
>>597303
Prussia wasn't relevant at all. The German state it evolved into was relevant within the confines of Europe until it got repeatedly defeated in wars in the next century.
>>
>>596389
I'm pretty sure everyone in Europe has lost to everyone else in Europe at least once.
>>

You didn't expected it isn't it? You spected a smelly, moutached frenchie and then Her bright eyes and red cheeks took you off by surprise?

When all you need to win is a 14 years old girl, it says a lot on the enemy...

lol the British didn't do that. the french took the brunt of the prussian upstarts. the british smacked their air force once and dueled their navy, but didn't actually smack down shit. the americans and russians did.

The French can take credit for many bits without a true focus of achievement. The Germans certainly made good on their slow start. The Russians coasted in glory as usual. Now suck my Anglo meatspin godstick you filthy continent-monkeys

>>597389

You foreign retards always try to take all the credit when our effort was decisive. Britain was a great big brick in the north sea forever frustrating the designs of you hegemonic continental retards.

>the hundred years war was actual a civil war between two french royal houses you guys!!!
this meme needs to die

literally no contemporary saw it that way

the Duke of Bedford needed to issue edicts between the conquest of Normandy and the emergence of Joan of Arc begging his soldiers and subjects to stop calling the Plantagent side the English and the Valois side the French because it wasn't politically correct, but there's no evidence that this made anybody stop doing it then and it shouldn't make you stop doing it now

>What is India?
A technologically backward shithole Britain conquered
>What are the Opium wars?
Britain picking on technologically backward chinks
>What is the crimean war?
France defeating Russia
>What is propping up the sick man of europe?
Turks arent european
>What is the Victorian period named for?
It only exists in English
>What is the German penis envy of the Royal navy?
Okay, you had a good navy
>What is the intellectual centre of Europe? (Haha, fuck you France)
Germany and Northern Italy
>>
>>596663
It's literaly the argument Brit used when talking about the Hundred Years War tho

>The French beat us
>It doesn't count because it took awhile
>>
>>598025
>technologically backward shithole
Now, after Britain dismantled her industry and turned her into a supply economy.
