On British and French World Hegemony (1918 to 1939)

In the years between WW1 and WW2, the empires of Britain and France eventually grew to the point where these two counties were lording over close to a half a BILLION black and brown skinned people, often with excessive brutality (concentration camps, forced famines, etc.) and, so, please, if you're going to bitch-slap German leaders like Bismarck (considered by many to be the father of the modern welfare state, as an aside), Kaiser Wilhelm, and Hitler, could you at least give a tip of the cap to this little ditty (that, and the fact that the British hunger-blockade of Germany in WW1 caused the death of over 700,000 civilians) as well?
