In the beginning the British were doing horrible. They had bad leaders and the friendship between the French and the Indians became really strong. The British sent the general Edward Braddock who failed to cooperate with the Colonist leaders, and failed to get Indian allies. In 1759 the British had a comeback, they invaded and conquered Canada. The English and the French battled for leadership in North America. The English did come out victorious, but at a cost: they now had a debt so large it nearly destroyed the English government. It was that debt that lead to the tensions leading to the Revolutionary War.
