Where Britain has not invaded

Based on a tip from a reader this week, I found this interesting map. Stuart Laycock, a British Historian has identified that 90% of the world’s countries were at some point invaded by the British in his book:  All the Countries We’ve Ever Invaded: And the Few We Never Got Round To.

Not all were captured and not all became part of the Empire. It makes a fascinating image. The nations in pink were invaded or taken over in some way at some point

  1. I saw this map some days ago and found it interesting.

    Is there a map showing a US equivalent?

  2. @GUWonder,

    I think you are missing the point. The US map really wouldn’t be very interesting I am afraid.
