Is Hannibal as good as he's made out to be or just an overrated prime-time memer?
>How do you want your empire?
>Just Fruity Pebble my shit up.
Where the fuck did these guys come from?
It seems like they just popped into existence in the 5th and 6th century or at least that is when people first started writing about them but did nobody travel to eastern Europe before or were the slavs not present in eastern Europe?
slavs are from central Europe. Vikings first settled and built Kiev, Novgorod, etc... No one lived east of the Baltic before that. Once towns and trading was established, slavs, nords, and balts migrated east.
What army has commited the biggest number of war crimes in human history?
Either the Nazis or the Japanese

So what are some interesting and historically accurate movies that /his/ watches?
I prefer ones available on Netflix, but beggars cant be choosers.
>pic of course not related
fantastic movie based on john reed, the only english-language reporter in st. peterburg for the russian revolution. long, but worth it, and one of my favourite movies.
Just did a quick search and this looks pretty good. Going to wait around and see if any Netflix available answers show up, but i'm defiantly gonna watch this in next few days.
Have some sweet art for payment.
If the US/GB/France and USSR began war with each other immediately after the fall of Berlin and surrender of Germany, who would have won?
Soviet armies have immediate ground advantage, but the lack of Naval and Air superiority along with American manpower & industry eventually cracks the USSR.
Europe is even more of a wasteland. Significant populations starve or are just killed in the crossfire.
>operation unthinkable thread
to be perfectly honest, by the time 1945 rolled around, everyone was just sick and fucking tired of war. No power was seriously going to entertain killing millions more people immediately after having 60+ million die in scenes that can only be described as true Hell.
Stalin knew that if he established Russian-friendly states where the Red Army was in control, there was very little the Western allies could do as they didn't want to continue the war longer than they had to. The Soviets also didn't want to risk continued war, but saw the establishment of the future Warsaw Pact as essential to Russian survival to stave off a potential 3rd European invasion.
The peace in Europe after the Nazi's fall wasn't one that the Allies all wanted, but it was a peace all sides could find acceptable, given the circumstances that no one was really going to fight even more after 6 straight years of combat.
What race were the huns?
I mean obviously they were Turkic, but for sake of argument what race?
Are Abrahamic religions actually an offshoot of an Akhenaten cult?
>centered around the sky with no animal or humanistic symbolism
>Egyptians practiced circumcision
>Egyptians avoided pork
>So you're telling me that I get to decide what gods people can worship?
>And that I get to decide where the capital is?
>Okay how about this one: Scrap all the gods, everyone has to worship the sun now. Also the capital is literally out in the middle of the desert where there is no civilization for hundreds of miles.
He was the first memelord, and quite the madman. You can tell from his smug smile that he enjoyed fucking with everything and everyone

Hopefully the painting I chose for the OP will be controversial enough to engender discussion, but not enough that links to spittle-inflected youtube autists get spammed for the entire thread.
Well, you don't really, not as a monolithic whole anyway; other than to say that it is an era extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s characterised by an experimental and occasionally iconoclastic bent. It encompasses a huge range of styles and movements.
Where did the notion that Democracy is something to strive for come from?
Neither the Declaration of Independence nor the Constitution mention the word "democracy", not even once. The founding fathers always wanted a representative republic.
Feeling a bit bad for my hate on Germany I think we should have a German culture thread.
Discuss Germans, Appreciate Germans, lust Germans
He did nothing wrong.
Daily reminder the only reason Mendel became a friar was because he was unable to financially support his educational aspirations and he realized if he became a clergy-member he could get free education.
>"[Mendel] became a friar because it enabled him to obtain an education without having to pay for it himself"
He was never a particularly religiously-inclined person, and in his capacity as priest mostly dedicated himself to the administration of the monastery and trying to obtain academic degrees/positions.
What does /his/ know about the Barbary pirates?
A bunch of Beys and Emirs who nominally were under the Ottomen but largely did their own thing.
Also they weren't "pirates." That's Euro-talk. They were actual state entities. You know how it was fair game for cunts to raid Africans and get some of them as slaves? Berber States applied that to Europeans as well
