Hi all,

I am required to do a historical investigation on an issue/question on the British Empire.  Just wondering what you guys think would be the deepest/easiest to research/most fulfilling?  Any question that requires an argument ie.  To what extent did Hitler dislike Jews?

Cheers

What are you on about, what do you actually want people here to do??

If you just want a question, how about:
Was Sir John Seeley right in 1883 when he said the British had acquired their empire in a 'fit of absent-mindedness'?

For a start:

I am simply asking for suggestions for essay questions for my topic?!

GCLE - Thanks for this, I will definitely look into it.  Do you think I could write in excess of 1500 words on this, with +/- arguments? Cheers again

Ah the British Empire one of the greatest. Look into how the British Empire changed after the War for American Independence(Revolutionary War). Since the British wanted to keep land they fought against the French in Europe as well as India. Also look at how the British never ceded any territory except Ireland following World War one.
