So /his/ do you think the holocaust could have been prevented had the allied forces gone to war with Hitler earlier?
Was there ever a time in history of the world where there was an actual leader who went "full Big Boss", as in being extremely obsessed with war and promoting "no borders" with nuclear strikes/global threats?
Pic very fucking related.
Post unloved heroes from your histories.

Man, someone should stream Lawrence of Arabia tonight in honor of /his/. It was just put on Netflix. I've seen the movie twice this year, no joke, and am totally willing to watch it a third.
ITT: Bad history
Post examples of some bad historians or bad history and explain why they are bad.
How did Hitler not realize he was fucked as soon as Barbarossa stalled and especially after the US got into the war and started pushing his shit in from the west?
In this thread, we talk about the fact that Africa wasn't just mudhuts and Egyptians. Here is one of my personal favorites, the Nok culture.
They were a iron-smelting people, who made their own version of terra-cotta art. Pic related.
African history is awesome. Im a fan of ethiopian history myself.
People who think african societies are backwards and primitive are some of the oddest folk. They do not understand history nor athropology nor sociology nor any of the humanties in general.
Let's start with a little 'nam
Are you even aware that civilization is at least 100k years old? at least.
In order for this board to work, everybody here needs to have a solid foundation to work with. We must make a concerted effort to promote reading history books when not posting. Therefore, I must ask, what is the last history related book you've read and what are you planning on reading next?

I have always thought that an Axis victory in Europe and an Allied victory in the Pacific would have been the best result of WW2
Do you agree and/or disagree /his/?
Given that my father's family is of German descent and experienced of a lot of prejudice based solely on a last name I inherited.
No, that would not have been the best result. Honestly what we got was probably as good as it could have ever been and thankfully the pacific theater didn't extend to a land invasion of Japan given the loss of life both sides would have endured.
>What? Men dodging this way for single bullets? What will you do when they open fire along the whole line? I am ashamed of you. They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance.
General Sedgwick's last words.
Thinking about it in depth, it's really quite impressive that the National Socialists were able to turn around Germany's prior economic state and restore it. Barring times of intense war, the people seemed to be happy and full of purpose.
Culturally it was impressive, the uniting of a nation. Though, the flaw is that it requires an enemy that's able to strike fear into the populace and unite them.
For the US, it was the commies. Once that faded, so does the country's unison. Though the US did see it briefly after 9/11
Why is this guy so popular as a god? Why do over half of the people in the world worship him?
The characterization of YHVH isn't popular. Less than 1% of the world is Jewish.
YHVH, Jehovah, and Allah might be the "same" God, but they're characterized extremely differently depending on your religion, and not only that, but the sect of your religion.
If you really want to know why God is popular, its because most people who believe in him actually haven't read the Bible.
