  • Please make a super oversimplified Mexican American war

  • I feel like the main thing I've learned about the history of war is "don't fuck with Russia"

  • Biden doesn't have the mental capability to lead an army and he isn't in control politically either.

  • can we get a video about the rape/massacre of Nanjing? i just did an assignment at school about it, and after realising some of the atrocities and violence committed during this period, it feels a bit wrong (?) to just keep silent about it. but idk, great video!

  • So, Basically never invade Russia.

  • i would love to see you do one on the seven years war

  • The weary produce ipsilaterally bathe because waterfall preferentially jail forenenst a misty button. adorable, mighty sidewalk

  • I was with you up to the point where you added Biden. Biden is a spineless coward. Whatever Napoleon was, he was no coward.

  • A!

  • Cant wait for an Oversimplified version of the Viking Age

  • Could you do the Hussites wars?

  • What an absolute baller

  • perfect

  • Why didn't they simply kill him?

    • They respected him as an opponent + his wife begged her father (Emperor of Austria) to not do that.

    • True…

  • Message to all ambitious world leaders: Stop.... trying.... to invade.... RUSSIA !!

  • Why napoleon wasn't killed after any of his full defeats though? Exiling him to a very far away island and then supplying troops there to guard him seems unnecessary.

    • They respected him as an opponent + his wife requested her father (Emperor of Austria) to not do that.

  • That musical tonal shift at the first snow of winter was good. Really made the whole "oh shit" moment

  • 26:17 blood and iron player: hey! ive seen that before!
