Hello, magandang hapon po (good afternoon to you) and welcome to my blog! In this article, I will discuss the brief bilateral history of the Philippines, Russia, the United States of America and Georgia (country). To make the article more fun to read, I represented each country as human so it will be easier to understand. I only made this purely for fun and I’m not really good in English so if there’s any grammatical error, I will revise it in the near future. Also, I made the collages! Please comment...

Captain's Log Entry 3: The Carnatic Wars

Posted March 26th, 2017 at 10:52 AM by Junius

Captain's Log Entry 1: An Anglo-German Alliance

Posted February 13th, 2017 at 01:15 AM by Junius

This article covers the time period from 1890 until about 1914. It highlights the main reasons why an alliance between Britain and Germany did not take place and how such an alliance could have changed the course of world history and politics. In my mind, it proved impossible to marry the surprisingly convergent interests of Britain and Germany due to the following factors:

1. The German Navy- Wilhelm may have had sound strategic reasons to establish a navy (such as Germany's huge...
