Which Countries Hasn’t Great Britain Invaded?

November 17, 2012 in Daily Bulletin, Signature

There are 200 countries in the world today. Almost 90% have some history of British invasion according to a book by Stuart Laycock and reported on by Jasper Copping:

  • There are only 22 countries today whose territory wasn’t the subject of British invasion at some point or another.
  • These countries include Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, and Burundi.
  • Not all of these countries were a part of the British Empire. Some were just the subject of small military raids with no intention of conquest.
  • In terms of number of countries invaded, France comes in second place.
  • France also has the distinction of being the country that is attacked most often by Great Britain.
