      Yep – line in the sand – or across the Green.

      To me, the American Revolution’s outcome was all the more amazing given the power of the superpower at the time. In one of my history magazines – produced by the BBC – they make the contention that is was the British Army, not the Navy, that built their empire.

      And in recounting all the major wars the Army had over the years – around the world – they lost only one.

      The American colonies.

      If you are curious in the magazines Sgt I’ll get the names for you – even send the last 2 to you if you’d like.
