The Story of EuropeAmbitions and Conquests - presented by Christopher Clark (eps. 3)

From the 15th to well into the 20th century, Europeans conquered and dominated the world: On behalf of the Spaniards, Christopher Columbus seeks a new sea route to India and finds a "New World": America! His discovery is the starting signal for the "Europeanization of the Earth". The Europeans are given a "golden age", in their colonies millions of indigenous people and slaves fall victim to it. Europe's world power striving for a "place in the sun" finally leads into the tragedy of the First World War.
