Podcast 1: The Industrial Revolution – Britain, the United States & War Commerce

Nelson’s victory at Trafalgar in 1805 set Britain and its Empire on course to become the world’s superpower of the 19th Century. It ushered in the Industrial Revolution and made possible War Commerce. But by the end of the century Britain’s supremacy was failing and the United States was ready to take over for what was to become the American Century as the new superpower. This five-part podcast tells the story.
