Why, and how, did Anarchists lose the Spanish Civil War? They had early successes, but lost a major series of battles after that, only to be finally crushed by Franco.
Franco had allies with significant material. The Republicans' only ally was the USSR which was at too great a distance to respond with ease, had to provide this support covertly, and naturally had its own problems.
Watching A&E's War and Peace and wanting to talk about Russia's role in the war of 1805. I know Nappy gets owned at the end but what was Russia's purpose for getting involved? What was the big battles? Where can i research more about this?
Russia was very insecure about its place within Europe (they were upto WW1, arguably still are). Getting involved brought prestige and recognition 'as a European country' that every Emperor since Peter The Great craved.
Where did the idea of three meals a day come from? Ancient Greece and Rome had two, as do most aboriginal groups apparently. The concept of "breakfast" seems to vary by culture, but whether or not the culture at anything in the morning doesn't seem to have had an impact on the total number of meals per day.
What are some examples of American treating Native Americans like shit?
>Short then is the time which every man lives, and small the nook of the earth where he lives; and short too the longest posthumous fame, and even this only continued by a succession of poor human beings, who will very soon die, and who know not even themselves, much less him who died long ago.
Was he being callous?
who best conquer ever
>hint its not this guy
I don't even know why people say Khan.
He never really did anything...
Conquered a lot of grass with a lot of horsemen.
Never really overtook any of the major areas, just look at the thrashing the Mamluks gave to the "Golden Horde".
It's like saying that you've traveled the entire world thus you are the greatest traveler when in reality you took an airplane from New York to Beijing.
>Conquered most of China
>Utterly annihilated the Khwarezmian Empire within 2 years
>As well as conquering lots of grass previously owned by other horsemen
>Never really did anything
Are you dense or just baiting?
>first major advance came against a depleted British force that was down to 2 infantry brigades
>still can't take tobruk
>second major advance came when the RN left the med to respond to the Japanese threat
>all this time could read British plans thanks to the dumb American diplomat
>lose and keep losing when no longer possessing huge material or intelligence edge
>mobile armored division
What were these absolute madmen thinking?
Sonnenblume (sp?) was against 1 division and 3 independent brigades, so like 2 divisions altogether.
Although I do agree with you that Rommel is an incredibly overrated meme general; and his only real competition in that regard would probably be Patton for WW2 commanders.
He did have gas. He had quite a lot of it, in fact. But Libya had no railroads back then, and he moved far away from his ports that were receiving fuel to sustain his advances on Egypt.
Something like 50% of his petrol supplies were spent moving other supplies up to the front.
This is no trolling nor a Bait.
I really don't understand how muslims defend or understand Muhammads wars. I know sometimes they where only defending themselves. But it is clear that muslims invaded as well in the name of Allah. As well we clearly see a provocation from muhammad to the rest of nations. Inviting to convert to islam in a more "pressure way".
I really respected moderate muslims. But after reading Muhammed war cult, destroying pagans, it rather seems to me strange.
It even makes me believe that it wasn't difficult for the...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Abraham and Moses were also warlords. What's your point? YHWH is a god of war, and in the OT pretty violent.
Jesus is the odd one out because he's a false prophet. Also Christians still destroyed pagans, even if Jesus was a hippie.
>Build an empire
>Make it last
It seems to me only the romans, turks, persians, and chinese have been able to do this
help me with my homework /his/
When did the Old Frankish language disappear from what's now modern France?
Where did the idea of fantasy Druids turning into animals come from? As far as I know that wasn't a part of the Celtic beliefs.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
So I found the first 3 quotes on Google, but yeah, MLKJ thread?
>some stuff off wiki
At age 12, shortly after his maternal grandmother died, King blamed himself and jumped out of a second story window, but survived.
King was originally skeptical of many of Christianity's claims. At the age of thirteen, he denied thebodily resurrection of JesusduringSunday school. From this point, he stated, "doubts began to spring forth unrelentingly". However, he later concluded that the Bible has "many profound truths which one cannot escape" and decided to enter theseminary.
Quote in pic sounds like Jesus when He said "how do you get rid off Satan with Satan?"
I guess Martin Luther King Jr was influenced by Gandhi as well
Ok one more, I guess he was born Michael Luther King Jr, then later had his named changed.
And unfortunately like most of the world's greatest people to come on Earth and teach outstanding ethics of peace, was assassinated.
So where the guals/germanics/visigoths really their own little empire that always hated Rome until they got revenge or were the basically just ooga booga where the Mediterranean women at.
they had their own complex society if that's what you mean. Most of our direct information on the Gauls come from Caesar's account, which we can wasn't the most factual considering he was at war with them.
