The Official History Thread

Recommended Posts

ThatKyloRenGuy

Honestly, I LOVE history class! It’s my favorite school subject as a matter of fact! Especially world history! My particular favorite historical time periods are antiquity, the Middle Ages, WW1, and WW2. In my personal opinion, it just makes school less boring. So..I’ve made this thread for my fellow people here on GTAForums to talk about how much they like history..or don’t like it. I’m not that cocky. Lol. You can also discuss historical time periods or just history in general here! :)

I really like history, especially when it's World War II on the topic. I personally loved Sturmgewehr .44 by Hugo Schmeisser. But the Thompson was a good one too.

History is my favourite subject definitely, closely followed by Physics. I just love reading history, lately I have been reading about Hashashins, Vish-Kanyas, Ashoka The Great, Genghis Khan and Mongol invasions. I came up with many interesting things like Vish-Kanyas or Poison Damsel were real not myth. They were given small quantities of poison, though many girls died, some girls developed immunity against the poison and hence were used as assassins. That's really fascinating.

Another fascinating thing I came up with was Ashoka's 'Nine Unknown Men' who were assigned to protect and preserve the knowledge that can destroy humanity if it fell in wrong hands. The most interesting thing about those books were that they contained knowledge about means of communication, terrestrial and Extraterrestrial, aerospace technology, using speed of light as a weapon, cosmogony and 'touch of death'. It can be just a myth but it is pretty interesting though.

History is my most favorite subject. It all started with the Titanic (the actual ship not the movie) and branched into Victorian/Edwaridan history then eventually everything else. :)

I liked history. Liked learning about the Romans and Tudors. And Aztecs. And the textbooks with pictures and diagrams. And eating food that Romans ate like pomegranate, and some honey food I can't remember. Really all I remember about history is that a lot of heads got chopped off.

 

I liked Religious Education too, even though I'm not religious.

Remember OP, if you ever struggle in history class it's okay, because all history is class struggle ;)

On topic: history really was  my favorite  class when I was going to school, I found it interesting and in a way exciting to learn about history not only in American history but throughout the world as well.

And if you missed something in class, don't worry, history repeats itself. First as tragedy, then as farce.

Oh man, I like history about Berlin, inquisition, nazis and kind of tragedy histories, but I like too about Egypt stories, even I am not religious person, I like to read too any kind of story about religion since his raising.

I just finished a whole semster of my university studies undertaking modern American history. It's pretty sad I know more about American history than my own country's lol.

 

But it's always been a favourite of mine. Ancient history is cool too. Egypt, Sparta, Greece, Rome etc.

Love history. Paid little attention to it in school, as it was mostly concerned with Australian history (post British) which I found quite boring at the time.

 

In my later teens though started getting into Roman history and it just expanded from there. Give me anything about medieval Rome and I'll devour it, seeing as it is not as well studied by historians compared to Ancient Rome. By medieval I mean the erroneously named 'Byzantines'...anything post 476 AD through to the fall of Constantinople.

 

Started more recently to get an appreciation of other periods of history (not necessarily broad sweeps such as the Medieval period for example...or ancient Greece) though through podcasts such as History on Fire, such as Italian gangs in the 70's and 80's, the conflict with American settlers and the Lakota, Teddy Roosevelt and so on.

It is highly debatable topic, depending on how you define the greatest empire, 'cause there were a lot of them. Romans, Mongols, Persian, Mauryans, Qing and many more. 

In terms of military, power I'd say Mongols. Genghis Khan just started from zero, he wasn't born as a prince, heir to the throne but he was able to conquer more than half of the Asia that means they had some of the best tactics known to humans. He killed so many people that literally caused climate change, decreased the level of carbon dioxide emission ! 

So, my pick is the Mongol empire.

Mongol Empire. It's really large by seeing it on the map.

Oh my goodness I love History. Don't really have a preference though. I enjoy pretty much all history. I mean there is so much. I guess I will say the only history I haven't really looked into yet is like really Ancient history. You know Egyptians and all that or Greeks. Though I have interest in getting into that stuff at some point.

I really like the subject but I had to study spanish history and it's soooo complicated, specially from XVIII to XX centuries. If you ever want to risk with spanish history be totally sure of it.
