The Seven Years’ War fought between 1756 and 1763 spanned five continents, affecting Europe, the Americas, West Africa, India, and the Philippines. It involved many European nations of the time.
In India, British commander Sir Eyre Coote decisively defeated General Thomas Lally at the Battle of Wandiwash in 1760 and ensured British control over India. It is believed that an underground passage led from Vandavasi fort to Gingee fort famous as the the Troy of East.
Lally was taken POW in the battle. He was later beheaded after a sham trial in Paris for treason.
