Why didn't Europeans settle in their African (except for SA) or South Asian colonies? Climate shouldn't be a factor. If they managed to settle in places like Australia or Brazil they could've also done this in Nigeria or Indonesia.
Europeans couldn't travel into the African interior because they'd be exposed to horrendous diseases that the natives had immunity to.
It's also why they couldn't colonize Africa earlier, it took the development of medical technology for whites to survive in the African interior.

Karl "tjurprepper" XII should have made sure all his soldiers had a bull each to keep them warm for the Russian winter.
How do you go from THIS..

Any thoughts on the Codex Gigas?
Is it real or just another crazy thing from the past?
What do you mean "is it real"? Do you mean is the content in it real? Some of it likely is. Some of it likely isn't. I'm sure there's some content in there that could be examined as a record of historical events, but I'm sure that the demons and angels aren't that.
Do you mean whether it exists or not? Well... I mean... you have an image of it in your post...
How come nearly all great German filmmakers were Jewish? Before the war, the only notable Christians were Murnau and Pabst.
G*rmans are an inherently artless, anti-intellectual and soulless people.
All of their artists and intellectuals since the beginning of time have been either nordic, polish, slavic/dinaric, magyar, jewish or italian.
How much did you learn about the old American west in school, /his/?
For an American site this place has hardly any discussion on it.
Had war with France not broken out in 1794 and the British continued plans to create and support an Indian barrier state following St. Clair's Defeat, could it have halted American expansion West? Or would it just be a matter of time until the Americans encroached and took over their western forts?
Greetings friends . lately i have decided to expand on my knowledge of roman history and was wondering whether anyone here could recommend a sort of an anthology that would cover the entirety of roman history from 753ish B.C. to 395 A.C. in full detail. To be more specific guys i want all the raw information detailing absolutely everything there is to know about Rome. Consider that your consulting a person who wants to write a book about the given matter.
First off, if you want to learn about the "entirety of Roman history," you need to expand your timeline to at least 1453 AD.
Secondly, if I understand you correctly, you want to write a book on Roman history, but can't think of how to find books on the subject?
Why did Germans chimp out on their own Jews if majority of German contribution to the world was done by German jews?
Were they really that retarded to think that all Jews are evil and want to destroy Germany? Why the fuck did they invent all the things in the first place then?
>Were they really that retarded to think that all Jews are evil and want to destroy Germany?
Go to /pol/ for 5 minutes and then come back here and tell me.
It's a classic case of "white man syndrome".
Inferiority complex stepping from getting BTFO'd by the British/French/Americans at the end of World War I and at the Treaty of Versailles.
Hitler and the Nazis probably didn't believe half the shit they pretended to. They knew that using the Jews as a convenient target for all of Germany's woes could unite the country against a common enemy, and someone they could blame literally EVERYTHING on.
Memes aside, how good are the Assassins Creed games at giving an impression of the periods they're set in?
Clearly each setting has it's fantastical elements, but in terms of city architecture, musical scores, historical figures, setting and the "feel" of places such as Golden Age Damascus, and Renaissance Italy; are they worth playing through for a history buff?
One thing on my mind is Ubisoft's apparent progressive bias that /v/ likes to parrot about.
Was the Arab Revolt good or bad?
>spread of wahabshitism
It was excellent, mashala
led to Arabs getting cucked out by perfidious Anglo and divided into meme states and allowed for the creation of Anglos. Looking back they probably were better off under the roaches
Was there any ancient civilization with an average quality of life a modern person wouldn't consider too bad?
How did the British manage to turn a few inbred hicks throwing a temper tantrum into a war against almost every major power in Europe?
They went full Germany
>a war against almost every major power in Europe?
Come on now Bribong, don't exaggerate
France was butthurt at Britain for the French and Indian War, and Spain was France's bitch since the end of the War of the Spanish Succession, so they followed them (kinda like Britain followed the US in Iraq in 2003).
These are the only two major european powers involved
Austria, Prussia and Russia remained out of it
The turkposter is actually not far wrong for once.
The American war of independence (which is I assume what you're referencing), went the way it did for the similar reasons to why the Triple Entente formed, in that Spain and France were worried about Britain's growing global trade hegemony (plus as the anon above pointed out, they wanted revenge for the seven years war), and the Netherlands wanted a concessions along those lines as well....

It's the 13th of July 1870, Otto von Bismarck has given /his/ a task of utmost importance.
We have to re-write the Ems Dispatch, so we can lure the French into a war with Prussia.
one word at a time.
Was he the most Emo President we ever had?
His life and term in office was both a literal and metaphorical train-wreck. Signing the Kansas-Nebraska Act illustrated that well.
I know no one on this board actually cares about history but this seems like a big deal

Tell me everything you know about the founding of Mormonism
are italians roman?
Much like the French, Portuguese and Spanish.
Modern Italians are little more then latinised germanics.
The Greeks are really the only ones with any real claim to the name 'Roman'.
What the fuck is up with Vojvodina? Why are there so many Slovaks there?
What was hitler's end goal? It just seems like everything he conquered was for the sake of resources to conquer more, did he have a plan to take over the entire world? Surely he knew that wasn't realistic, right?
Pic half related
> What was hitler's end goal?
A peaceful Germany with a happy, prosperous people.
> did he have a plan to take over the entire world?
> Surely he knew that wasn't realistic, right?
Yes. Very much so.
Enslavement of the Slavs and the conquering of Eastern Europe for living space and for its agricultural potential. As soon as the Ukraine was conquered it was already being settled with German colonists. Basically he wanted to do with Eastern Europe what the Americans did with the great plains and the west.

Could a european middle ages army fight a war against a dragon?
For the sake of reference, let's say that the dragon is the size in the pic, can breathe fire, and is capable of limited flight because physics are gay. Let's say that the dragon has invaded Britain in the year 1450.
What sort of tactics could the British army use to fight such a beast?
Why is he so stupid?
why are fedoras so obsessed with gnosticism
is it their intense desire to be a contrarian? because it's literally "dude what if we turned everything in christianity upside down: the religion"
Gnosticism is much more logical than Christianity. World is full of naturally existing evil, if you believe in creation then kind of a faulty God makes better sense, than a wishful thinking of Christianity. The main difference between fedoras and the religious people is that the didn't use religion, as a form of escapism, so tend to choose the reals over feels.
What would be the term for someone who believes in multiple gods, but worships none? I tried to dig around for it a little, but couldn't come up with what I was looking for.
This is my first time here, so I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to be asking this question. I just wasn't sure where to go.
> What would be the term for someone who believes in multiple gods, but worships none?
In the gnostic texts, what is meant by "woman", and related terms like "womanhood", "female", "femaleness", etc.? It can't mean individuals of the female sex because when this quality is discussed is discussed also by Mary Magdalene herself, beside the other disciples, so it must refer to a quality of some sort that can be present in men, and women.
