The article focuses on the war between France and Great Britain over the control of North America. From its beginnings in the forests of North America, the war soon spread around the world. Both the British and the French received support from European nations. The German states of Prussia and Hanover sided with Great Britain. France's allies included Austria, Spain, and Russia. By 1756, fighting spread to Europe, India, the West Indies, and other parts of the world. In Europe, this war was not known as the French and Indian War. It came to be called the Seven Years' War.
