Could you please write down 15-20 or more, most crucial history events (dates)? I'm from Poland, don't even know British History and I need it really bad. Thank you

If you're Polish then why do you need to know about British History? I don't understand. For me the most crucial history event was when the war minister had a fling with a young girl and it brought down the Conservative government in the 64 general election.

Hmm. I presume you mean the 1963 scandal, after which John Profumo resigned. The problem was that the girl was conducting an affair with a Russian spy, not the affair per se, and that Profumo lied to the Commons about it.

Harold Macmillan retired due to ill health in October of the same year, and his successor, Alec Douglas-Home lost the general election a full year after that, in October 1964, for reasons far more related to the Conservatives having been in office for thirteen years than the scandal. I'm not sure why you think it so momentous.
