Was Alexander as Great as they Say? (Controversial)

Posted October 20th, 2017 at 05:24 AM by NBSHistory

A series I created on Alexander the Great. I in no way believe him to not have been "great" I simply was displaying the many overlooked flaws in his character. Received some backlash, but if you watched all three parts I believe I make a valid point!

I am unsure if it simply because I was taught mostly on his flaws during my studies, but it seems to me this point of view is very surprising to the community here!

Claiming Owari Province

At that time Oda Nobukata of Iwakura castle, who ruled the four upper districts in northern Owari, made an alliance with Saito Yoshitatsu against Oda Nobunaga, who now ruled the four lower districts of southern Owari. The loyalty of the feudal clans in the lower districts was also questionable given the situation. Not long after, Oda Nobukata attacked a village called Shimo no Go with his Iwakura army, which was located 2 kilometers from Nobunaga's Kiyosu castle....

Oda Nobunaga: Fool of Owari (2)

The Fool of Owari

Oda Nobunaga, now aged about 18, had inherited a relatively strong clan but also a tenuous hold now that his strong father had died, especially with the ever growing threat of the Imagawa clan in the east, an unstable peace with the Kiyosu Oda and a potentially unreliable if not treacherous ally in the Saito clan. So too were there potential enemies within the Oda branch of the deceased Danjo no Jo. At the Bansho temple, which had been built by Nobuhide, a large funeral...

Captain's Log Entry 5: The Great Game, Chapter 1

Posted August 19th, 2017 at 09:43 AM by Junius

Hundreds of square miles of territory came under Russian control, and the Tsar looked to solidify...
