An extremely well made video, it shows how badly divided the Greek world was at that age. Instead of cheerfully uniting to face the might of Rome, they still quarreled among themselves. 300 hundred years ago the city states barely managed to come to reason and unite against the Persian invasion, only to engage in a bloody civil war which was fought between Sparta and Athens. That’s the curse of Greece ( treachery from within and civil war, after a victory over a foreign enemy). The same pattern was later repeated in 1821 during the Greek war of independence against the Ottoman Empire, after the first 2 successful years, the leaders of the revolution turn against each other and begun fighting among themselves in a bloody civil war over the leadership of the newly formed Greek state, while the turks and Egyptians were planning a massive response. The Greek state was barely saved due to the intervention of Britain France and Russia. Even in modern times, right after the defeat of nazi Germany, the spectre of treachery and civil war once again appeared over Greece when communist party fought against the democratic army. The results were thousands more casualties on a war fought between Greeks. After all my country has suffered, we can still see signs of endless pride and resentment between different factions of that same nation, ready to boil down into open confrontation should a pretext presents itself. Unfortunately there can be no lasting unity amongst people like this.

Who are you to even consider taking care of Türkiye ? Don´t you realize that a war against us would result in a devastating defeat for Greece ? But honestly I wouldn´t put it past the Greeks to do a foolish thing such as waging war against a superior and more powerful nation. We finally could get the Islands and Thessaloniki back.

The Persians had a huge number of Greeks in their army from Anatolia and Northern Greece. Macedonia was a Persian vassal state at the time. Half the other Greek states refused to fight so the brunt of the fighting was Athens and her allies, Corinth and much of the Peloponnese.

This video highlights a truly important era in Rome's history. By conquering Greece and the modern-day Balkans, Rome removed Antigonid Macedonia as a viable threat to the Republic and opened the door to conquests in Asia. This era deserves more attention, and thank you for bringing this topic to such a wide audience!

Unfortunately for the romans though, a mixture of stiff resistance and and lying guides made it so they couldn't get far into asia at all. The middle east was the unpassable are for them, and they never got far into east africa. If they managed to make it through the middle east, or conquered all the way to ancient somalia (they had sea based trade with asia), the pathway to india and china would have been possible for them.

They conquered outside of Italia now and it made them a lot larger, that gave them the opportunity to conquer the whole coastline of the mediterrian sea and thats what they did, when the Roman empire started, but were unable to defeat Germans and so in the end Germans came to destroy Roman empire.

I love this kind of historical telling. So many histories leave out the geopolitical context surrounding a war is refreshing to see this information in a broader context. I'm well familiar with the basics of the second Punic war however this is the first history I've seen that included more context of the state of the Roman Republic and the surrounding lands.

It's channels like this that remind you how well Total War games translate to B roll footage and as visual aides for historical battles. I still remember Decisive Battles on the History Channel using the original Rome: Total War to this effect, and I think it got me into strategy games as a kid. I feel like this is a kind of spiritual successor, and I wish they'd bring that show back instead of 18 different reality shows. Still.....this isn't a bad substitute.

i learn 90x more from my own research than I do from teachers or schools. Then I also tend to research things that I find will assist me in life. I learned the value of Pi when I want to create an aesthetically pleasing building in Minecraft or Conan exiles, I learned to use ratios when i want to bake cakes, cookies, and other desserts. i make a point to learn the words I will need at the Markets in the countries i live in every day which increases my vocabulary. relying on other people to teach me things puts me at other people's mercy of whether i will get facts or will be subject to bias. People tend to teach based on the bias so will skew facts to their interests. I know this because i am similar. I will usually word things that support things I am biased for and provide less support for things I oppose.

I blame the school system rather than the individual teachers. I think most teachers would agree. Also its one thing to learn in the comfort of your own home, and another to learn in a place which you dont want to be, and having to sit with 30 people you may or may not like.

This long video showcased many battles, and each one showed how fickle morale was. This had always been so with warfare, it's just fascinating seeing it strung together, repeating each time. The losing side of a battle may still have tons of troops capable of fighting, but if the men see they're getting flanked or attacked from the rear, it was over. Nobody wants to get surrounded, pincered, etc. Guys will bolt and run. Also in the time period all this took place, the Roman Republic was a steamroller. From the end of the Second Punic War and in the years after, which includes the conquest of Greece, the Legions carved out out an empire. In addition, you can see how as the power of Rome grew, its diplomacy in dealing with the Greeks lost a lot of finesse and resorting more quickly to blunt force. It could not have been a good time to have lived in Greece or Asia Minor at this time. Especially in Greece with the nonstop fighting. I lost track how many times Rome had to dispatch armies into Greece.

@Fedoramaster Good point there. I usually ignore the Americas because I just don't see them ever so much as breaking even. Pretty much the only way I'd ever give them a pass is if they got hit by Smallpox in the 1200's due to a ship being blown off course so as to give the population at least a fighting chance thanks to natural immunity or some such when the Spaniards show up. Or... if our good friends, the Northmen, decided to set up shop in force and created a viable civilization in the North East

@Fedoramaster As a massive fan of alternate histories, I find that to be an aspect rarely, if ever covered. Imagine one princely state or another in India with the military and political stability needed to fend off the Dutch and Brits, like an Indian version of Prussia, then going full Imperial Japan on the Indian ocean and utterly dominating that part of the world in the 1880's.

I've always been intrigued with history but, alas, all the names, facts and figures require a good memory, something I don't possess so history has always been a challenge, however the graphics and animation of this presentation allow me to appreciate the magnitude of ancient battles between Rome and Greece. How on earth did they manage to organise themselves over time and distance without modern communications ? It's all very well for Generals to make decisions but how did the troops manage to maintain cohesion and act decisively as a group in the heat and mayhem of battle ? Tens of thousands on each side ... can you imagine the noise and blood and guts ? What about logistics of food supply and animal care ? What about non-combatants, the growing and harvesting of food, women and children ? Negotiations between leaders separated by distance must have occured at a glacial pace. If we fast forward to the modern day the warmongering has stayed the same but the speed, hardware, communications, logistics and theatres of war have increased beyond belief. The future of mankind looks decidedly bleak, eh ?

Especially the big and small details. And the way your battle maps are presented. In my opinion, your videos on history are the way to be done. And not to sound weird, but your voice is perfect for narrating.

Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome were interesting cultures!
HelleNick Ай бұрын
@the pit man bull Italians Latins weren't Greeks that's my point. Roman culture is based on the Greek culture and their military is based on Gallic and Hispanic weapons, that is correct but ethnologically they are not Greeks. Furthermore i would like to say that i think Albanians and Greeks are ethnic cousins because their dna is the closest fit to mycenean and ancient classical Hellenic skeleton dna which means they both derived from the same ancient tribes. Also Alexander the Great of course he was Greek because Macedonians were a tribe who fled Argos before settle in the far north and also his Molossian mother Olympias, was a descendant of Fthiotes, the tribe of Achilles so all in all Alexander was greek in dna and in the mind because he was so much into greek antiquity and anti-persian feelings. At the league of corinth after charonea he was declared strategos autokrator leader of the Greeks. To prove that Alexander wasn't greek I think it's propaganda. Also about ancient Albania, it is very interesting to research the fact that the land was considered Hellenic by most ancient historians and Illyrians were placed between Dalmatia and nowadays montenegro. You said ancient Egypt was greek of course it wasn't but maybe there is some misunderstanding because of the Ptolemaic Egypt which was a Diadochi Hellenistic state, a combination of Greek and Egyptian culture and its famous wealth made so many greeks migrate to Egypt and form a strong greek community based in Alexandria lake mareotes and Cyrenaica.

@HelleNick don't you know that according to the Greeks everything was greek🤣🤣🤣🤦‍♂️ they even claimed Alexander the Great being Greek. And all of Albania being Greek all of Egypt being Greek. The list goes on.... you can't have a conversation with the Greeks because they know it all.

@Sumbarine I suggest you read about the ancient Greek mathematicians from Ionia (now Turkish territory) and that's only about their knowledge and "inventions" regarding Maths. Why anyone would think that all the ancient people didn't communicate and exchange information is beyond me!The fact remains that the European world adopted the knowledge of the ancient Greeks.There are ancient Greek authors who write about their travels.Unfortunately the writings of the really very ancient "logographers" as these ancient historians are called,have vanished with only fragments remaining and their names mentioned but Herodotus did copy some snippets from a logographer relative of his!

@ADGE the balkans had the biggest mines &best miners in the entire roman empire. The Dardanians (illyrian kingdom) were the best iron producers, the illyrians and greeks had the most advanced naval ships, the romans took 90% of their things from the balkans and not ibera or gaul or whatever. The illyrian praetorian prefecture had the most emperors, it had the most troops, it had the most fortifications etc etc.

Ever since I've found this channel I have learned so much more in less time. I listen to him at work, driving around or waiting for my games to download or update.

Philip V is a funny man. When he had Hannibal knocking down on Rome, he makes a half-assed attempt at war with Rome; When Hannibal lost, Philip suddenly felt like he was the man and commits to an all out war with Rome and lost; When Seleucid fought with Rome, Philip acted like a true friend of Rome and supported Rome; When Seleucid lost, Philip again felt the urge to be a big man and started resisting Rome.

@friedzombie4 grappling hooks? The romans were so sure Rome was not in danger they did not even recall their army besieging Capua or recall any of the other garrisons. Losing their field army at far away Cannae did not weaken their defences elsewhere. And as we know, the romans crushed Hannibal and Cartaghe in the end.

Hence my statement “Germanicus reciprocated”.

You have to admit, Antigonus III’s decision to make Phillip V his heir is a brilliant power play. It legitimizes Antigonus’ power while respecting Phillip’s birthright, it preemptively shuts up Phillip’s supporters (preventing court intrigue and minimizes the chance of any unrest), and it tidies up the line of succession by having the rightful heir still be the heir.

I still think that Alexander's legacy was not "buried" with Perseus. Indeed, on a flat field, nothing could stop a well disciplined phalanx. I think they could still have been used in some places and battles in Gaul to break through stubborn resistance. In each battle, the Romans would seem to have a stroke of luck and get around them.

Back when I still played CK2, I had a Roman Empire file and the Greeks rebelled at least once during every new Emperor's reign. It became a rite of passage. No other people rebelled nearly as much as the Greeks. After every rebellion, I took more land away from the Kingdom of Greece. Somehow they'd get it all back and start the process over again. Eventually I learned to imprison the King of Greece before the Emperor/ress died to keep their heir from having another civil war.
