His podcasts are so visual he illustrates a picture you can see in your minds eye, and hr makes you understand what’s going on to the point that you feel pike you are in the Verdun, or being outsmarted and killed by the mongols. Sometimes I’ll day dream about history and the horrible things that people went through just horrifies me to the point it feels like PTSD sometimes.
In one if these ww1 battles he described shells coming down and you couldn’t hear a single shot…bit was just waves and sometimes it would slow down and sound like drum fire! Were talking huge shells that will blow up your house, its incredible that people were living through that. Any she’ll could randomly hit you and it was a matter of time.
The the thing about the mongols is the sometimes had only 40,000 guys and some sources will say only 20,000 when they conquered Arabia which is literally unbelievable. Imagine 40,000 people just tearing apart armies 4 times larger than them because of their specialized horses and extremely powerful arrows. It blows my mind that once a few armies were gone, these 40,000 psychopaths were enough to rule over millions of people mostly by terror. I mean imagine of today 50,000 aliens just showed up, destroyed all of our militaries, and began a genocide. And this was only 800 years ago.
