Britain changed hugely during the 20th century. Life for ordinary people was transformed and became much more comfortable. Liberal reforms in the early 20th century. Life was hard for the working class at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1900 surveys showed that between 15% and 20% of the population were living at subsistence (bare survival) level. Worse between 8% and 10% of the population were living below subsistence level. These figures seem shocking to us but remember things had always been that way.

Destruction of country houses in 20th-century Britain. The destruction of country houses in 20th-century Britain was a phenomenon brought about by a change in social conditions during which a large number of country houses of varying architectural merit were demolished by their owners.

At the threshold to the 19th century, Britain was challenged again by France under Napoleon, in a struggle that, unlike previous wars, represented a contest of ideologies between the two nations. It was not only Britain's position on the world stage that was threatened: Napoleon threatened invasion of Britain itself, and with it, a fate similar to the countries of continental Europe that his armies had overrun.

Edwardian Britain was a powerful and rich country, much of its wealth coming from business abroad. The so-called Battle of Britain was the British answer to the permanent attempts of Germany to ruin the industry of United Kingdom and to suppress the spirit of the British people by heavy air bombardments. By the end of 1940 almost all aircraft factories in England were destroyed, and a few British fighter squadrons remained operational, but the ability of Luftwaffe to carry out offensive operations in the West was almost zeroed due to very heavy losses.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Britain's empire remained the largest . The rise of the German Empire ensured a change in Britain's foreign policy at the beginning of the century.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Britain's empire remained the largest in the world and included the colonies of India, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada and the Caribbean territories. However, the 20th century was the last century of this empire  . This is a book that covers nine of the largest land and naval battles in the Pacific Theater. and France formed the Entente, which later expanded into the Triple Entente that included Russia.

During the 20th century, Britain underwent a major transformation. A country in which a law-abiding individual would hardly notice the existence of the state had become one in which, from the cradle to the grave, no one could avoid it. An empire controlling the destiny of one-quarter of the human race, having no allies because she needed none, had become an offshore island with an ambiguous relationship towards the Continent. How did this come about and what were its consequences? This lecture is part of the series Britain in the 20th Century: Progress and Decline.
