    And there are little delights, such as the pirate Blackbeard's last words, as reported in the Boston News-Letter of March 2, 1719: "'Well done, Lad,' he says to the Highlander who wounded him. 'I'll do it better,' the lad replies, cutting off his head."

    he warned Maynard that: "may my soul be cursed if i show mercy or ask for mercy". To which Maynard replied: "i do not hope for mercy but i will show no mercy". Either way Garbarsardar the Greek got 2 out 3 questions right and wins. Please post the next question.

    was it the first day of the German invasion of Poland in 1939 when the Polish cavalry charged a German infantry division inflicting heavy casualties, but where forced to retreat when Panzers arrived. In all i think they only lost 20 men though they where forced to retreat.

    Here we go then:

    1. Why Piscatorii was a derogatory term during the Roman Republic?
    2. "We lined up behind it and start firing. When the smoke cleared we realised that the "..." had suffered no damage". What is the "..." ?
    3. Why a Swedish army crossed the Turkish border?

    And to clear this up:
    was it the first day of the German invasion of Poland in 1939 when the Polish cavalry charged a German infantry division inflicting heavy casualties, but where forced to retreat when Panzers arrived. In all i think they only lost 20 men though they where forced to retreat.
    Polish Campaign is surrounded by numerous myths such as the destruction of Polish Airforce in the opening hours of the invasion and Polish Cavalry charges against German armored units. Both myths are creations of German and even Italian propaganda and are very far from truth. Polish cavalry was active during the campaign and acted as horse mounted infantry. One of the most successful cavalry charges took place at Krojanty, where elements of 18th Uhlans Regiment attacked and destroyed German infantry battalion only to be counterattacked by German armored unit. Uhlans attempted to withdraw and suffered heavy losses. This event lead to the story of Polish cavalry charges on panzers.

    well No 3 is because Carl XII lost at Poltava and had to run, so he ended up in the Ottoman empire.
    i would guess that the naval warfere wasn't the most noble of careers for the romans so they called the men in the navy piscatorii?
    no idea about question 2 - very crazy guess is that ... are the scots at Prestenpance(sp?)

    No3 is correct.
    No2 refers to a specific vehicle
    No1 is incorrect.

    1. It has to do with the relation of the welthier citizens and fishes, but not what you said.

    2. It could fit to a Tiger tank too probably, but in that case it was the Germans who were firing...ergo...

    It was indeed Char B1. You can click on my Blitzkrieg siggy for more details.

    About piscatorii, it was a derogatory term since it characterised the infatuation of the wealthier class with fishponds and exotic fishes.

    Kara, please ask the next round.

    Ok here i go:
    1. a viking that "died" in the far east
    2. a king that saved european capital and centuries later his name was put on a bottle of a national drink
    3. is maybe easy, but i'm at work right now- an emperor and his grandfather both died in a long war, but one of them was fighting for the enemy (the grandfather died about 50 years before the emperor)
