Modern history
"Never have so many owed so much to so few." these worlds were spoken by Sir Winston Churchill, the British Prime minister during World War 2. Britain played a leading role in the fight against Hitler's Germany. Even though Britain had been on the winning side both world wars, the country had lost its position as the leader of the world. The Hong Kong return to Chinese in 1997 marked the definitive end of the British Empire.
After the terrorist attacks on the USA on 11 September 2001, Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair was America's most enthusiastic ally in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Britain today is no longer a political or military superpower. But when it comes to world business and finance, London is still one of the most important centres. In addition, the country that gave the world William Shakespear, football, the Beatels, James Bond and the BBC is still a cultural force to be reckonded with.
