Epic History is my favourite out of the bunch. They upload rarely but their videos are of extremely high quality and well researched, their Napoleonic documentaries are very well made.

I also like TIK His videos are often long and more professional than most but are very well sourced and detailed, he created many good videos debunking myths on WWII.

There are very few genuinely outstanding history YouTubers, I watch most of the animated ones purely for fun rather than education.

Yeah I agree with this. Generally I restrict any serious attempts at learning about history to reading books on the topic, not any other medium (e.g. YouTube or podcasts). For me YouTube history channels are purely for entertainment sake.

Kings and generals stopped citing sources a while back. A while back I viewed one of their videos and decided to compare its text with that of the Wikipedia page on the event. I began reading, the text which I read was virtually the same as a bit which I‘d heard a bit ago in the video (It was one of their videos on the Ottomans, of course they might have done this even if they did their research but I don’t suspect they actually did their research). In their video on Austerlitz they also spread the claimed that thousands of Russians drowned when the French opened fire on the lake their were retreating over, I’ve not read any books on specifically the Battle of Austerlitz but I’ve heard It is a misconception. I’m mot too impressed with their content as I thinks all of you noticed by now. Here’s a channel that some of you might like and is not very well known: Eastern Roman History.
