The British had the biggest empire in History covering more than 1/3 of the worlds land surface,we stopped Napoleon in his tracks in the battle of Waterloo, In ww2 Britain stood against Germany and the Axis and defeated them in the Battle If Britain even though they were Outnumbered and Outgunned, same story goes with the Falklands, yes Britain has lost some wars but why is it the British military tends to pull it's weight above the world,
