I don't think that was happening with British invasions. I am not making any excuses for all of what England did. We can just look at Opium problem with China.
12 years of Nazi occupation was only 12 years because of the Allies. Who can only imagine how bad it could have been if left untouched.
Look at India.
It was once very prosperous -- and wealthy. India was the crown jewel in the British empire.
The Brits built a RR system to loot the country -- the RRs were designed not to develop India but to extract wealth --
Britain used the resources/wealth stolen from India to launch its own industrial revolution.
The Brits meanwhile used the various language, cultural differences and the caste system to turn Indians against themselves -- a method of control the US has copied and taken to new levels (as evidenced by Edward Snowden's revelations).
It is not a pretty picture.
