  • I can't even begin to describe how thankful I am for channels like this. Most people see history as a dry and stuffy affair, fit only for boring history classes whose lessons are forgotten the moment the test is over. Others reduce things so far down that there is only vague moralizing lessons and misrepresentations of complex and fascinating historical events. This channel goes into surprising detail, despite its name, and teaches history in a way that is honest, engaging, and fun. Making it less like a laborious process and more of a joy on par with or exceeding watching most vacuous high-budget "entertainment" and Hollywood films. Keep doing the great work :)

  • OverSimplified, I cannot thank you enough. Earlier this year, I was struggling in my history class due to some differences with my teacher. I needed to get my grade up, and fast. I started watching history videos, but none of them gave me exactly what we were studying. Enter: your channel. Somehow, your uploads have covered almost everything our class has covered, and thanks to you... I've passed the class with a B+.

Edit: Just found out from the follow-up video. It's Prussia, but after loosing the dutchy of Warsaw in the 4th coalition war against Napoleon. My bad.
