Favorite War
Posted 9/16/08 , edited 3/7/09
If you've ever taken a history course,then you should probably know that the most interesting part is learning about the various wars and battles that have taken place throughout history(well it was to me..maybe im a freak),what was your favorite to hear or learn about?mine favorite wars were the wars between the ottomans and europeans until the ottoman empire crumbled after the naval battle of Lepanto.I also liked the punic wars and WW 1.

Also,dont just say the name of the war,discuss it a little,give some history about it tell what you know about that particular war,or wars, that you find interesting.

EDIT:war is not glamorous,i get that...im saying that u have to learn about war eventually(unless you want to be a completely ignorant person your whole life) and many wars and war stories are interesting(explain to me how taking delight in the battles between julius caser and vercingetorix,which was another very interesting war, is any different from taking delight in the destruction of the one ring)And of course,the many great war heroes who arise and become amazing in your eyes (for me its lawrence of arabia,charles de gaulle, field marshall montgomery and king gustavus adolphus)

Ive changed my mind,after reading a couple books on it i realize that actually the thirty years war is goddamn interesting,it all started when bohemians threw catholic governors out of prague castle's windows and put a protestant man as the new king,this sparked war with the holy roman empire under the control of the catholic hapsburgs,the bohemians were so badly defeated that the new monarchy had to flee to holland,the hapsburgs in spain then invaded the netherlands,england and denmark sent in troops but englands forces died of a plague before they could reach holland and spain managed to defeat denmark as well,england and denmark withdrew from the war,then william of orange came in,he had united the dutch and led a powerful resistance movement and helped the revolts in the spanish netherlands(belgium),then the swedish joined them to protect protestantism and the baltic sea from spain,the swedish king was a hero and a genius,he led his men to amazing victories but was killed in battle and his chancellor wasn't as good a leader,sweden later withdrew from the war,finally france,although catholic decided to end spains power and joined the protestants in defeating the hapsburgs,william of orange creates the united republic of the netherlands and eventually becomes king of england.One of the reasons i liked this war was because it linked with the struggle for dutch independence to become the first republic in europe,also because it involved the massive naval battle at Gibraltar where the spanish got their asses kicked by the dutch navy.

he's not asking what was the "worst" war in terms of number and brutalities

hes asking which one peaks your interest


and if you say hate all wars equally
then you should just say

" i choose to be a hippie "

basically like the chick above my post ^^^^
