It was John Albert who accepted Stephen's conditions for retreat and it was him who decided to break the arrangement.
Thus, on October 26, Stephen ambushed the Poles while they were...

Looked it up and you are right.
Confused it with another event.
Still though, I doubt they simply stormed the city, it was at the time larger and better defended than Thessalonica and especially...

Yes, but in other places they preformed marvelously.
Salona for instance, one of the largest Roman cities in the 6th century, with its walls fortified with at least 90 towers, total circumference...

People often have a delusional depiction in their mind of militias being peasants armed with farming equipment.
The historical description and pictorial sources nearly always paint a...

Not even near the amount present in the post 10th century medieval ages...interestingly enough, the vast majority of large/quick conquests done in Medieval Europe was precisely before the age of...

Croatia was nothing but a small and insignificant kingdom in the grand scheme of things, just like Serbia was, even as an Empire.
Of course it was a weak Empire, it only lasted for 20 years...

Why do you keep mentioning Saladin?
He was incompetent and was humiliated by numerically inferior troops multiple times.
His massive elite army was annihilated at Montsigard by a detachment of...
By that you probably mean objective western historians and not mitomaniac lunatics that you call historians in Serbia.
Nope, that shows where modern Serbs wish medieval Serbs lived.
Those borders are falsified, Bosnia never became a part of the Serb Empire or Kingdom, and yes, that is still pretty small.
Barely half the size of the kingdom of Hungary, smaller even than...
Lol dude get off your high horse, all of us combined barely number 20 milion people, we are nothing to the Great...
The whole thing seems kinda exaggerated and sensationalist.
July 27, 2015, 03:07 AM
Because spectacular defeats in the medieval times are far more popular than spectacular victories.
For every defeat that the feudal lords had you can find an equal amount or greater amount of...
Why not trillions?
The entirety of Serb ww2 casualties in Yugoslavia was 346,740(Cohen 1996, p. 109).
Well, as a Croatian this comes to me as a slight surprise.
Namely, Wallachia in my language is "Vlaška" and the Romanian people who came from it were called "Vlasi" and this term...
does anyone have any information about how men would salute each other during the medieval era(particularly the late period)?
I know about the "rising the sword so the guard comes to...

Structural integrity, less likely to bend or cave in.
Same reason why late medieval plate often looked like metallic hand fans forged together.
July 08, 2015, 07:49 AM
Those are some really, really small plates, 0.5/.06 cm each...wow.
First of all, forging plates is less time consuming than mail.
As the forging techniques improved during the late medieval...

I have read more into scale armor and it seems that you were right, it was used extensively at certain periods.
It was often shown in art and I have even found a depiction of a beautiful "full...

The comment was about thrusting, not targeting the torso.
He said "...stab never works".
From what I read the thrust is by far the most common description of ones death during the period and the...

He is not vicious, the thread is about evil soldiers.
Read the damn thread.

Dalmatia was transferred in 923 to king Tomislav of Croatia(but was still formally a Roman theme), then was returned to the Romans for a while only to be given away again, but this time integrated...

1) A stab is done in less than a second
2) The man on the left and right are facing forwards looking into the eyes of the man in front of them probably not having the leisure time to keep their...

If you find any download links please send me a pm.
I would like to see what all the hype is about.
New update done.
Revamped/replaced certain tracks and added sections of different tracks and various music in between remaining ones.

Oh Americans, what a pathetic and weak society you have become.
We genuinely liked you more when you were the villains of the world...at least you were badass.
We sure will miss you once China...
June 26, 2015, 11:03 PM
That looks thoroughly ceremonial.
Then again, Roman Emperors, unlike most other rulers, weren't exactly expected to do much/any fighting so I actually would accept him wearing that to a...

Yes, but the very presence of natural redheads in ancient Egypt is a massive hit to the balls of every Afrocentric lunatic out there, just as the presence of sub saharan traits on ancient Egyptian...
June 24, 2015, 06:38 AM
No, your racism and completely obsolete notion of race is totally absurd.
"Dark" does not equal sub-saharan black, for hells sake I am from the Balkans, caucasian to the max and I have family...

We have basically nothing iron from that period because most of it was either recycled(like 99% of medieval equipment) or, unlike bronze, just rusted over time.
Though, I know of two more examples...
June 24, 2015, 12:59 AM
While I agree that bronze is far stronger than most people tend to believe, I am not so sure about "iron only being better because it is cheaper/easier to produce" part, why would the officers and...

Another interesting siege depiction showing defending troops throwing pottery, furniture and stone tiles at the enemy;
June 23, 2015, 08:29 AM
I disagree, the upward thrust is the easiest and most practical move you can the moment the shield is not in the way.
It is basically a natural, slightly upward, movement from the resting position...

Supposedly murdered about 2000-6000 people completely by himself from his stuka airplane.
