In fact we were many times in our early history and of course we did revolt often but not always with success!

Yes I agree the one that stands out is the struggle beween Suetonius Paulinus and the Iceni, were superior tactics won over a superior force.

These things look very different depending on view point. Was it the "Philippine insurection" or the "Philippine wart for independence"? All peoples want to be "free." Even when "free" is under a repressive, corrupt government of their own people, rather than an efficient honest government of foreigners.

Unhappy Re: The Indian Mutiny

Reading through this thread,I can see many erudite comments about the Mutiny's origins.At one end of the scale the Raj unquestionably did a lot of good ;but the ordinary Indian was treated abyssmally.
The Mutiny heralded the beginning of the end; but it took a while, two world wars and ninety years.

 Flying as Leader of B Flight, 41 Sqn, on 15th August 1940, Pilot Officer Ted Shipman and the rest of his flight found themselves among a mass of Messerschmitt Bf.110s that had been detailed to escort a bomber force of Heinkel He111s on a raid on the North of England.  Having made one head-on attack on one of the Bf.110s, Shipman manoeuvred his Spitfire Mk.1 onto the tail of another and fired a long burst into it.  This was M8+CH of Oberleutnant Hans-Ulrich Kettling of 1./ZG76 and rear Gunner / Radio Operator O/ Gefr Volk, whose starboard engine burst into flames and disappeared into the dense cloudbase.  Shipman claimed this initially as a probable, but it was later confirmed as a victory when the aircraft was found to have crash landed at Streatham Nr Barnard Castle.  Spitfire K9805 (EB-L) is depicted breaking off the attack as Kettling's stricken Bf.110 begins to burn.  Ted Shipman would go on to serve with the Royal Air Force until December 1959 retiring as a Wing Commander.  Ted would also go onto become friends with  Hans-Ulrich Kettling, the pilot he shot down.

The plan for the breakout began with a massive aerial bombardment, using the strategic air forces large bombers to decimate the German defending forces then Lt-General Richard OConnors VIII Corps comprising three whole armoured divisions – 11th, 7th and Guards - and spearheaded by Major-General Pip Roberts 11th would then rush forward, overwhelm the defending Germans and causing the armoured forces to move forward and break out from the beach areas. To cover the flanks the Canadians would fight their way to Caen, while the British 3rd Infantry and 51st Highland Divisions would cover the left flank,  and move further eastward.
