          propoganda :)

          Yes, they made out OK in the end with relations with other European nations, having assets in Canada, etc. I would not call that a “win.” A win would have been putting the colonies back under their thumb and taxing them out of existence, etc. They settled here for a reason (extraction of natural resources), and that became a trade relationship after the war as opposed to simply loading up boats and taking it.

          If this makes the British feel better about how things ended, then enjoy the article!

            France, Spain and the Dutch were the big losers in the Anglo-French wars. The American Revolution was a small part of a global conflict. In the end, the British Empire was formed after taking many of France/Spain/Dutch colonies. This made Britain the dominant world power. And replaced the trade lost from American colonies. Although the American trade was restored over time. After all, we are cousins.
