    Hi Endeavor,

    "Between the years 1900 and 1901 a troop of armies invaded a country three times." This is correct for the simple past tense.

    Re: Help check sentence

    Alternatively, you could say:

    1. Between 1900 and 1901, X invaded the country three times.

    (It seems unlikely that "a country" is correct; in most contexts, it would be "the country". Also, "a troop of armies" is an unusual expression; a "troop" is a subset of an army.)

    All the best,

    MrP
