Britain came into this war prepared with all of the equipment needed for the war. Britain have all necessary guns and are abundant in resources that can help them defeat the colonies. Britain gets a lot of resources from the colonial goods.
The land was unfamiliar to the British soldiers
The British Army is very well trained and they devote their lives to detecting to the army where the Colonial Army were mainly filled with volunteers. The fighting style of Britain was very formal and they used the same techniques of fighting as they do for every other battle..
Greeting goods from Britain to the Colonies was a long and expensive process
(2 months in) By the time we get there the war might as well be done already!
The British had about 80,00 troops total including the Hessians. This was detrimental to the little amount of troops for the colonial army at 20,000 troops
The British Army and public were not supportive of the war
We pay enough expensive taxes at it is and we just are going to increase that by fighting our OWN people.
Britain soldiers were coming from Britain and most likely never even visiting the colonies before. Unlike the Colonial Army they were confused of war tactics and the war efforts were more difficult.
Where are we and what is this place? How to people live happily here?
Britain brought a bunch of resources but that doesn't mean that the resources will last the entire more. They were going to need resources but the problem was that the process was extremely long. It was also very expensive which meant more taxation.
Britain was already in debt due to the French and Indian war. With the idea of a new war they just see it as another form of payments that the community will pay for in taxes. The Army also didn't want tofight but they did it out of the orders of the King.
Tell me about it. Sometimes I think our King doesn't think.
