How was the English Reformation Different From the German Reformation?

The Protestant Reformation differed in each country, in the way it occurred, progressed, and the outcomes that came forth. A very good example of these differences during the Protestant Reformation was with the countries of England and Germany. How did the English and German Reformation differ from each other?

The main difference between the two Reformations was how they occurred, progressed, and the outcomes that came forth from them, as I mentioned above. For example, the Reformation in Germany was instigated by Martin Luther because he saw great wrong in the practices of the Catholic Church. The English Reformation occurred when the Church of England, during a series of events eventually led to its separation from the Catholic Church. 

Thus, the English Reformation and German Reformation differed greatly due to how both of these events occurred, progressed, and the outcomes that came forth.
