      The French and Indian War is a French success in Canada and a stalemate in
      America. Eventually there is a war between France and England for control
      of America, with many patriotic Americans siding with France, tired of
      British rule.

      2) The French are successful in this war. What are the consequences,
      particularly during the Napoleonic Wars?

        No real change.  The war completed the bankruptcy of the French state but what went wrong to produce the French Revolution was mostly French internal politics, institutional neglect / decay, a weak monarch and French intellectual trends.  What France needed was an Ivan the Terrible or Stalin instead of two fatuous royals.

        The political conditions offered in 1777 would have stoped the rebellion in its tracks 1774-75.  The 'solution' after Saratoga and European intervention was to go on the defensive in North America until the Bourbons were forced out of the war THEN crush the rebels.  Protracted war in time until the bankruptcy of the new US economy brought new leadership to power.

        So when England wins, maybe sometime in 1785 or 1786, what happens to France?  How does the unsuccessful war affect its economy?

        How could England have won the war against the American rebels, France,
        Spain, and Holland, and what would have been the consequences of such a
        victory, not just in America, but in Europe as well?
