Why should they do that? The EU already has submissive slaves in the form of the French.
bc french arent subhuman
10/10 tour
They are literally animals though.

Germany should balkanized, Along with all other european countries and all the countries on the planet. Prosperity and healthy civilizations only come to be under highly decentralized contexts.

Crassus this guy advising us to march straight into the desert doesn't look very legit, I think we should go back to Armenia and pick up reinforcements before we invade.

why is a child slave the most expensive kind of slave you can get
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Because you get an entire lifetime of work out of them and they're a blank slate to train into anything you want.
They're not, they usually went two for one, unless it's a young girl. Your most expensive slaves are healthy dudes with skills: blacksmiths, translators, stone masons..
I imagine some great bidding wars happening over young blonde girls, a lot of Roman aristocratics wouldve paid good money for a hot gaulic pleasure slave.
Besides that though your most valuable slaves are going to be skilled adults, some of the best artisans and teachers of the ancient world were slaves as young men.
you all forgot about gladiators, the prize fighters of their era, and most of them were slaves
they traded them around all the time, in groups, for other slaves
they would go for millions in todays money, the price of 60+ regular slaves
Future value. Also less depreciation

why allies betrayed poland?

a hurrr buh germans mobilized a large part a der miwitawy an made plans to kiw off pole civiwians in one day, make a sense right????
Poland also actively sabotaged any attempt at early anti-German sanctions and Repercussions.
Because Russia was in possession of all of Poland's territory and refused to play ball. It didn't help that the two biggest war hawks towards Russia (Churchill and Paton) were voted out and killed respectively. This left the pro Russians without opposition so they decided to fuck up and lose the peace.
Because the allies weren't really in any position to strong-arm the Soviets and their gains in the East.
All refusing them would achieve is cause a diplomatic break-down prior to the war's end.

Christ, imagine how apocalyptic it all must’ve felt.

>the patricians kept winning
Wow its almost like the whole system was rigged or something
Not really it's kind of hard to explain but Romans had to acquire Dignitas and Auctoritas for themselves in order to best their peers. The best way to describe it would be prestige. For a Roman it helped to have ancestors who achieved the consulship and various other offices. Caesar is a good example his family was down in the dumps so he used Marius, who was related to him by marriage, instead to achieve some Dignitas for himself and it worked like a charm. On the topic of consular tribunes the tribunes of the plebs were mad and humiliated that the plebs kept voting for the patrician candidates rather than the plebeian candidates who happened to be tribunes of the plebs. It really damaged their egos. Honestly the office of Tribune of the Plebs is a poorly described mess. It was a necessary office but damn it caused a whole lot of unnecessary damage due to it's overly broad powers.

Thr big changes are the war 1936-39, the end of economical isolation 1960, and the entrance in the EU 1986
And the 2008 recession, of course

Did the Persians (or Iranians at large) have any major contributions or achievements pre-Islamic conquest? Off the top of my head the only ones that come to mind were they developed cement for building construction and roadways at the same time Romans did and the largest single-span archway (free-standing). Anything else they did?

>roadways at the same time Romans did and the largest single-span archway (free-standing).
Actually they did that a long time before the Romans did. Did the Romans even have a postal service?
Wait really?
I did forget about the royal road but wasn't the Roman roads more advanced then the Achaemenid Persian ones?
>I did forget about the royal road but wasn't the Roman roads more advanced then the Achaemenid Persian ones?
It seems the Achaemenid ones were more advanced and grander, but considering Roman Legionaires were experts at building roads quickly, perhaps the Roman way was easier or had some kind of innovation.
>more advanced
In what way? And source?
>In what way?
Larger, utilized in a more advanced way. It's possible that the Achaemenid only revamped, reconstructed, and connected the roads of the Ancient Middle East, but even then, it was an unheard of idea on a big scale.

Not to make this autistic but I'm curious to see if people have anything related to the U.S. military between 1870-1914 before the Great War. WWII is obvious a beaten horse, and modern military while interesting, has been done a million times and it's a meme. But I rarely see anything related to the U.S. military between the 1870s before the Great War.

What's wrong the Krag?
Besides the Spanish-American War, it was just a lot of minor colonial spats, mostly related to maintaining the U.S.'s sphere of influence in East Asia and Latin America.

Because "most people" aka whites have an at least basic understanding of the difference between those, unless he/she is some hipster taking art history classes or actually cares about history no average American could tell you ANY differences between Persian and Moroccan culture, its all just sandnigger to them.

There's the original 1800's gold rush miner, and then the much later 1900's gold rush miner. My field of research is particularly regarding War Production Board Order L-208 which immediately stopped all resoursing of mining operations and rerouted said resources to war efforts. This order put almost all placer and lode gold mines out of business, and the claims went un-worked for some time.

After the war some claims got up and going again for sure, but many did not, with only about 10% of mining operations resuming after the war, which then themselves slowly closed doors. This leaves an enormous amount of gold in the California and Oregon areas completely ripe for the pickings, especially with modern technology which can get our machinery into much more complex situations than ever before.

Rewinding back to WWII it is my field of research to categorize which benefactors purched which claims, or has made new claims where old ones were such as to bookmark land for completely unregulated gold removal. If you thing gold miners are above corruption...buddy, they invented corruption.

Just trying to follow the golden rule: what was the cause of WWII? Did a private investor see a potential trillion dollar industry just chillaxin' in CA's creeks and streams?
Now, in 1952 there was an acceleration from almost 2% of what placer mining had been to well over what it ever had been before, and in a single season most of CA's placer mines were exhausted, producing 3.7 million plus troy ounces of gold in a single year. If my suspicion is correct and that a small number of individuals were behind this upsurge in mining during the spring of 1952 then a select few people became obscenely rich.

Marching forward to the present day we have Alaska. Alaska's been farmed for gold since the 1700's, and probably by the Russians before that. America's most important current event in the mining industry was just approved this year of 2019 to begin construction in Alaska on a number of dams, one measuring over 400 vertical feet, to execute Pebble Project: the largest American gold mine ever.

WW2 was caused ultimately by the Treaty of Versailles & the Nazi Party's use of it on the Atlantic Front & by Japanese expansionism in the Pacific Front, not by greedy businessmen.

Welcome to humanity, we are even shittier than your /x/ tier fantasies, which is why you subconsciously dive into those fantasies in the first place.

It's 1939, Dirlewanger injects himself with bullshark testosterone, breaks into Hitler's bedroom and rapes him to death. He goes on the radio and declares himself Reich Chancellor and head of the Armed Forces.

Redpill me some /lit/ on this guy.
raping people isn't celibate
I really want to read more about him. He's literally the absolutest madman who ever lived
I'm convinced that if he took over, everything that came under German occupation, would immediately burn to the ground and be raped and massacred. Hell, even germany itself, this nigga was fucking Nero pumped up to 11, he could burn Berlin for shits and giggles if he had the power to do so.
I'm actually morbidly curious to know how the world would react to such atrocities, I mean, sure sandniggers burn and rape for the shock factor every other day, but it'd be much different now and happening somewhere relevant instead of some backwater village
none I know of in English
