Are Dinosaurs and prehistoric stuff in general /his/ material?
>and the creation of "general" threads is discouraged
Thank you based mods
>/his/ - History and Humanities
Does this mean we're allowed to discuss philosophy?
ITT: post your philosophy of life
Ask for recs for specific historical periods/places/people/etc
People hopefully answer them
Will Osprey threads be allowed on /his/? In the meantime post your Osprey art or any other historical depictions.
Thanks. I've got a decent amount of the osprey books themselves in pdf format but they're not very high quality.
ITT Empires and countries that did not deserve to fall
What would've been different if Leon Trotsky became the leader of the Soviet Union instead of Stalin?
Soviet union would have collapsed quickly , trotsky wanted an international revolution , so he pushed for the polish war , where the soviets got rekt , i think he would have kept trying until other soviets would kick him out
Congratulations, you just swapped Stalin for the Russian equivalent of Mao.
The Red Army is a huge factor in political questions now, industrialization never happens, it might be that they even start WWII.
I cannot believe this slips my tongue, but Stalin's rule was actually preferrable.
Apparently William Tecumseh Sherman is new meme.
How would China have turned out if the KMT had succeded in putting down Mao before or after WWII?
Would it be an even greater economic power than today, without having gone through Mao's great jump forward?
I don't think the Cold War would have been as long or intense. The commies originally had nice intentions but went to shit after a bit, my grandpa even fought for them. The KMT also had some unpopular warlord support. Perhaps initially KMT China would not have been very successful, but with western support and influence it would be a nice place to live today.
Let's talk about the Holy Roman Empire
Yeah it wasn't the best, but it was interesting.
Which were the best and worst princes of the HRE?
>he didn't major in History or Historical Fiction
ding dong, faggio. you just tripped my shitpost alarm. oooooh yeahhhhhh rubba dubba. get outta here you punk.
How do you think?
1. All images and discussion should pertain to the humanities: history, philosophy, religion, law, classical artwork, archeology, anthropology, ancient languages, etc.
2. Discussions about books, poetry, and other forms of literature should be posted on /lit/.
3. Discussions about politics and current events should be posted on /pol/. Global Rule #3 is in effect: blatantly racist posts may result in a ban.
4. Please do not start threads about events taking place less than 25 years ago.
>itt most influencial thinkers in /his/tory
Starting at no. 1
ITT we try to clarify the rules of this board.
Mods and hiro please post if you are reading this.
Are alternate history threads allowed? (ie. not fanfiction shit, but what would happen if major event occurred differently etc)
Is there a cutoff for discussion? 1999? Can we talk about 9/11? Can we talk about the Arab Spring?
Are psychology and sociology threads allowed or just philosophy?
Any special features this board should have? Suggestions?
Why was it so shitty?
Or I suppose to be fairer on it. Why was it really mediocre?
