Empire & The New Worlds
The ending of the Napoleonic Wars, left Britain as the pre-eminent maritime power with a world wide power base, set for expansion. The years of peace in Europe, after Waterloo in 1815, allowed Britain to concentrate on trade with her empire. Indeed it was local conflicts, mainly over trading interests, that led to the expansion of the Empire rather than any planned aggrandisement.
