— Hello, Tanya!
— Nice to see you, Oleg! What are you writing? A new article?
— Yes, it is dedicated to the history of Great Britain.
— But the British history is very long:
— I have chosen one of the most interesting periods for me. The article is called "Postwar Britain".
— I am sure, it was one of the most difficult periods. I know that Churchill said 1940 "I have nothing to order but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us many long months of struggle and suffering".
— I have his quotation in the article. But Britain’s human losses were comparatively small, about three hundred thousand which was four times less than in 1914-18.
— But the material damage was more substantial, about 25 billion pounds.
— The reforms that took place after the war, gradually brought prosperity to Britain. Though this process was not easy.
— But now Britain is one of the leading countries in the world.
— Yes, and its history continues.
