Greetings! I am Ivalani, a 15 year old who is currently searching answers for her history project. In this project I am searching for different points of views from people from different countries. I understand that Great Britain was part of the "Allied Powers", & I come from the U.S who were later in World War 2, was also part of "Allied Powers" . I would like to know other things from Great Britain's point of view of World War Two. Anything helps, thank you .
What were some of the poorer or more isolate lands that Philip II of Macedon conquered? I want to write a historical play but I need somewhere to set it in. Thank you.
I know Mongol Empire, Majapahit Empire, Vietnam war, World war 1, world war 2, French Revolution, 100 year war (France vs England), and more again

| The Americans lost the Vietnams because of the ChuChi Tunnel in Vietnam. So the Americans enter the Chu Chi Tower, but they cannot move because the size of the tunnel is too small. So the Vietnams can defeat the Americans easily, and also, there are many gates in the tunnel, which is make the Americans really confuse which gate is the right gate|

I want to be a Historian because in my class i'm number 1 in History and Geography. But my favorite is History
Hi guys! I really love American history, and I've studied it a lot. My favorite periods are the late 1700s (the American Revolution) The World Wars, and the 1950s-60s. I especially love the fashion from the different times. So if anyone else is interested in discussing American history, go ahead and shoot me a message :)
I am a professor of History, Geography, Socioogy and Philosophy, and I would like to talk to people from distant countries, especially Oceania. Exchange information about history, geography, archeology and anthropology. Greetings!

I don't just like history I love history! Everything from the first settlers in America to the Civil war. I don't really like the war of 1812 so I don't know very much about that. I have studied much after the Civil War except for reconstruction and Billy Graham. Send me a message if you'd like to talk about American history or anything else. But I am only looking for people my age and I won't talk to you if your a boy!

|hi I am will I see that you are interested is it for a school project or just out of curiosity I know a bit about it but not the full story it would be fun to learn about it
i know that it was caused by fighting against Prussia and England which they used a lot of money then by helping the Americans american revolution so they used even more money
and then people started starving cause there was no money. that is about where my understanding ends um i know that the queen said "let them eat cake" that didn't go to well for her got herself guillotined

|Hi Yile! My name is Julia. I am a student at Ocean County Community College in the United States. I am a big fan of Civil War history and would be happy to help.
I have visited Gettysburg, Washington DC, as well as many other Civil-war places on the East Coast. Anything specific you want to ask me about, feel free. I am majoring in the American Civil war!
One interesting tale is of General William T. Sherman, who was a general for the Union army. Durring the end of the war, he used "Total warfare" to achieve his goa, sometimes called "Shemans March". He burned, pillaged, and overthrew atlanta Georgia, pushing General Robert E. Lee (the most well known confederate General) up towards General Grant, who pushed lee to the appromatic court house in april of 1865.
Also, look up the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment. They were the first all Black infantry regiment to fight for the United States Union. They fought at Fort Wagner, and although lost, they went down in history as the first to fight as Black soldiers in America.
The Civil war was not just about slavary, it was much more then that. Please feel free to ask any more questions!

I am currently doing a history project which requires me to ask you on your point of view of Russia's point of view of World War 2. I was wondering how students in your country see world war 2 as part of russia. In my country we learned how Germany Invades Poland and begins the War. Anything helps, thank you Irina ;) !|

With my boyfriend, we love walking in the forest, and even today we find many things from WWII and WWI like German or American trench line, shells, old bullet... Even one time we found a helmet!
But I understand because it really can be interresting to know how people lived during war and how they feel it.

I LOVE history especially The Middle Ages! I find that time period very interesting! I love reading about it especially when it's about King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. If anyone wants to talk about The Middle Ages, feel free to reply.
| 22397 - Reply from Peter151 (Great Britain) - 2013-10-31 |
Ye, I agree, the mediaeval period is exciting and interesting, from every aspect.
Only, King Arthur etc did not live in the Middle Ages, If he existed at all,he was a Romano British Leader (maybe a 'petty king' as they are sometimes called. and was around
in the time just after the collapse of Roman rule in Britannia (as it was called then).
No 'knights' in shining plate armour, or round tables etc, All that was a myth started by
much later mediaeval writers like Mallory and Chretien de Troyes, and then polished up by
Victorian imagination. Films like 'Excalibur' are just fun entertainment.

|ah yes, the twenties. very interesting, especially in that the things that went on and were socially acceptable were much more progressive than the coming decades....however after the twenties come the thirties and forties, which means world war two, and world-wide economic crap. of course, not much better than today.

I love history as I think that there is so much that we can learn from history, and that the way society was during the ancient civilizations such as the Pharaoh Dynasties and the time of Ancient Rome. I love the older, classical history compared to modern history as it is so much more interesting in my eyes. It was so full of life, especially periods like the Renaissance, unlike today where technology has taken over in the absence of culture. There is still culture and art, but not to the extent of these periods. I would love to be a historian so I could study these more in depth...

That's great, it's really interesting so Renaissance Italy doesn't feel like work. I think that they would very it as only one world war, or at least depending on how far we are talking about in terms of the future and whether we have expanded human settlement. Fifty years in the future, I believe that they will still belief that they are two wars, but maybe within another 200 years they will be perceived as one war with a slight respite in between.

| It's good to hear from somebody who has similar opinions to mine where history is concerned. As to your English, it is pretty good, so no worries about that. When I finish Year 12 at the end of the year I hope to study History at University so as it stands you probably have more knowledge about it than I do at the present time but I am currently studying Renaissance Italy and anything about that period that interests you or any topics from that period that you would like to discuss would be quite welcome. So many people take history for granted, causing many mistakes to be repeated.
And yes, thinking about the future is also quite interesting as to what they would think our culture would be compared to theirs and the advancement of it all.

|Hi Leah, I agree with you. I have the same tastes about historical periods. I study History at the University. We could exchange our knowleges, tastes and ambitions if you want. I like to know how people lived in the past and I also like to imagine the future sometimes. History allows us to travel in the time and in the space and I find it funny. What I like the most are the little comic anecdotes that have occured sometimes in the past. Sorry for my English if it's not clear, it's not my native language.|

Hi ! I love History, and specially Middle Ages. I love arthurian's legend too, and crusaders (with Templars). Could I work about these two subjects ? I'd like study and work in another country. How could I do this ? In fact, I know about what I want work, but I don't know what studies do. And I don't want close my possibilities.
Bonjour ! Je suis passionnée par l'Histoire, et plus particulièrement le Moyen-Âge. Et aussi par la légende arthurienne, et les croisades. Est ce que je pourrais travailler sur les deux sujets ? Par exemple en travaillant sur les mythes et légendes médiévaux. J'aimerais aussi étudier et travailler à l'étranger. De quoi ai-je besoin pour le faire ?
