What if the the Byzantine Empire had won or not have the Battle of Manzikert, assuming that history plays out similar to our timeline with the exception of events influenced by the fall of the Byzantine Empire and such (The Crusades)?
If the battle of Manzikert had been won then the Byzantine Empire would've remained a powerhouse, there wouldn't have been the crusades in the first place and who knows how different history would've been.
What are the best documentaries about us history?
The North was afraid that cheap slave labor would destroy their jobs, and that the South, with their ability to import humans and then assume two thirds of their votes in the House of Representatives and in the Electoral collage, would outmaneuver them and render American democracy meaningless.
The South was worried that as more states were added to the union, the political balance of the country would tip towards the abolitionists, and they'd eventually have their entire social system destroyed.

Was that true? I think it's at odds with Harriet Truman's warning to Japan to surrender.
Has there been anything worse than the holocaust? If so, what?

which was the best army of World War One
While the Germans had excellent small unit tactics with the introduction of the Sturmtruppen, I don't really know if I can say that any one army was the best for WWI. But one thing is for sure, it wasn't the Austro-Hungarians, Italians, or Russians.
