American War of Independence

The American Revolutionary War, also known as the American War of Independence, was a global war that began as a conflict between Great Britain and thirteen of its North American colonies, which declared independence as the United States of America. France entered the war in 1778 as an ally of the Americans, whilst several German states agreed to send troops in support of Britain. The war ended in 1783 when the British signed the Treaty of Paris and recognised the sovereignty of the new US.
