  1. Re: The always returning discussion: Could Nazi-Germany have won WW2?

    I believe this is a very valid point indeed, and I think it makes sense. That being said, I do think it had a bit more of an active life than don attributes it to be, just not something that actually...
  2. Re: The always returning discussion: Could Nazi-Germany have won WW2?

    Not really. At the time the pact as a German Containment plan and it as a guarantee of Polish Independence went hand in hand. As even Pilsudski etc. al. had known, and even his mealy mouthed heirs...
  3. Re: The always returning discussion: Could Nazi-Germany have won WW2?

    Indeed, and there is nothing wrong with that. It's a big question and there are always going to be different ways to approach it, so no worries or problems there.



    You misunderstand me. I don't...
  4. Re: The always returning discussion: Could Nazi-Germany have won WW2?

    Firstly, I think a lot of things tend to be trendy at various points and times, or even at the same one. The over-exaggerated view of Nazi German science/military accomplishments/ etc is just one...
  5. Re: The always returning discussion: Could Nazi-Germany have won WW2?

    I would personally say yes. While it's tempting and trendy to look back with what we know and see events as they happened as all but pre-ordained between the superior technology, manpower, and...

    Re: How did the Bolsheviks managed to win?

    There are a whole bunch of reasons, some as big as the core of Russia and some as small as a teabag. But to start with:

    The Bolsheviks by this time were very much totalitarian in outlook, and ...

    Re: French support of Henry Tudor

    Even I would have to say that claiming Louis XI put Henry on the throne is a bit much, and I don't think "Whig History" is the problem with it. Henry Tudor's campaign would have failed like the...
  8. Re: Arab anti-Jewish terror BEFORE creation of Israel

    While I agree with most of what you say (or disagree with it so minorly it's not what I will bring up here), a slight point of order and factual correction.



    Actually, both narratives...

    Re: French support of Henry Tudor

    First and foremost ccllnply, you have to understand that trying to think of French (Crown's, I should add) actions in this entire period on the assumption that they were focused mainly on England...
  10. Re: Arab anti-Jewish terror BEFORE creation of Israel

    Really? I find it funny that for someone who is so antagonistic to "rhetoric and lying" would ruin their own post and credibility (which got off to a rather good start in the first paragraph except...
  11. Re: Arab anti-Jewish terror BEFORE creation of Israel

    @Morblus Sirte @Lord Oda Nobunaga

    While I agree that the OP is shite and that the demonization and bloodshed on both sides needs to stop, the idea that the Palestinian population is primarily...

    Re: "Germany Is Responsible For WWI."

    Thank you for clarifying, because it is a massive help. I'm sorry if I went a bit overkill responding to those parts of your comments. I just want to explain that while it might seem like over the...

    Re: "Germany Is Responsible For WWI."

    If you made the argument that the current generation of Germans should not feel guilty about what previous generations of Germans did, I would have agreed with you. However, I fail to see how...

    Re: "Germany Is Responsible For WWI."

    Agreed at least immediately, but I do believe that Hitler's leanings meant that marching West was a strategic and ideological necessity for him. I think he would have preferred to digest Central and...

    Re: "Germany Is Responsible For WWI."

    I'm sorry you feel that way, but it also means that it is impossible for me to take you or your complaints seriously. First and Foremost, there are a lot more frustrating statements out there. WWI in...

    Re: Killed Charles in Dec 1942

    The problem with this is that Charles was an active general in his own right historically, and actually had to be called back from going into melee a few times (like at Naseby). On top of that, he...

    Re: Dans Les Balkans

    Personally, I'd recommend putting stuff relating to the First Balkan War in the WWI Mod since that's closer to what the FBW deals with. But still, good stuff is good stuff.

    Re: 1648: The Two Towers

    Sorry for the drive by; I must say this is shaping up to be an absolutely amazing side-mod and if it is anything like the Vanilla 1648 it will be amazing.

    That being said, a slight drive-by...
  19. Re: The Road To LuoYang Team's other MOD - China Qing

    I'm sorry to have to bump this up, but if this mod looks half as good as it does, letting it go neglected in the back of these forums is a stain on TWC's honor. I've actively enjoyed the Road to...

    Re: Italian Government

    Sorry to Necro, but I feel like weighing in.



    I'd beg to respectfully differ, jetrho. You do raise a very fundamental point because the tensions between the legal government and the military...
