Are there any documentaries about Hitler that aren't stupid and childish? They basically all go:
>This is a picture of Hitler as a child
>Bet his mother didn't know he would become PURE EVIL
I mean goddamn I just want to learn about this period of history.
If people have free will is God still omnipotent?
What was the religion of Leonardo da Vinci? I've heard everything from reluctant Catholic, to Deist to Gnostic to crypto-Pagan.
My favorite theory is that he was from a Gnostic sect that revered John the Baptist instead of Jesus, and that he's paintings are full of Gnotisc and occult symbolism and allusions to the primacy of John the Baptist, but I'd like to know what other people have to say.

>"Dude, lions are cool as shit!"
Is this pretty much the thought process behind this and coats of arms and all cultural symbols?
How do you say "It ain't me" in Latin?
Is anyone else disappointed by ancient and medieval warfare? It was just a bunch of dull sieges and spearmen poking each other. Speaking of spearmen why weren't pikes used instead?
How much of the legend behind Rurik is true?
Did Rurik and his men get slavanized genetically and culturally like the Normans or did they stay Norse for a long time?
How much did Rurik's Norse background affect the culture of the area? Is there still Norse/Germanic cultural links in 1600+ Russia?
>How much of the legend behind Rurik is true?
He probably existed and first rulers of Kievan Rus were Normans.
>Did Rurik and his men get slavanized genetically and culturally like the Normans or did they stay Norse for a long time?

Who was the greater Germ remover, Napoleon or Stalin?
Napoleon seemed to have been a more refined Pruss-remover rather than Germ-remover.

So Stalin I suppose.
