During the Revolutionary War, the French decided to send substantial help to the American freedom-fighters only in 1777, several years after the start of hostilities. Not wishing to support a doomed cause, and waiting to see how spirited the Americans would (and could) resist British force, the French were convinced by the American victory at Saratoga that lending support would be a worthy investment in American and their own efforts against the British.

The French sent money, supplies, troops, warships, and support. They were a great help. Here is an interesting little known fact. King George asked Catherine the Great of Russia to send Cossacks to help him fight the colonies. She refused but if she had sent her troops it could have changed the outcome of the war.
