Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
The 7 Years War (1756-1763) was a conflict between the major European powers!.Britain and Prussia fought against France,Austria,Sweden and Russia!.(Russia briefly changed sides in 1762 before becoming neutral)!.
The winners were Britain and Prussia!.Britain was able to greatly increase Her colonial possessions and power,at the expense of France!.The French had to leave Canada altogether,and Britain became the dominant colonial power in India!.
Prussia retained territory it had seized from Austria during the War of Austrian Succession (1740-1748),the most important being Silesia and its huge coalfields,now confirmed as part of the Kingdom of Prussia!.Prussia also gained recognition from the other European states as a major European power!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
