Write a paper of around 1500 words (5-6 pages) on the following topic:
Starting with the great voyages of discovery of the late 15th and 16th centuries, European states began a more than 400-year rise to global dominance. By around 1900, they possessed vast overseas empires, unprecedented in their scale and world presence. Yet, after World War II, they soon began letting those empires go. Describe how and explain why. Then, focusing on France and Algeria, explain why France fought long and hard to hold onto Algeria, its ultimate failure to do so, and the impact this struggle had on France itself.
Use the files attached for the majority of the paper’s resources. Make sure to check for grammar and awkwardness of expression. To avoid this, try using short crisp sentences. Also, symbolic expression requested in order to defer flowery vocabulary. The paper should have clarity, a strong concept, and must be conveyed clearly. Include a works cited page.
