The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), the American War of Independence, or simply the Revolutionary War in the United States, began as a war between the Kingdom of Great Britain & the 13 Colonies, but gradually grew into a world war between Britain on one side & the newly formed United States, France, Netherlands & Spain on the other. The main result was an American victory & European recognition of the independence of the United States, with mixed results for the other powers.
