🚩On the surface it is a minor battle in the Peloponnesian war, but in fact it was quite significant. It, arguably, turned the tide of the war and marked the first time that a written record was made of a deliberate use of a cavalry reserve in the heat of the battle.

    🚩I've wanted to cover Battle of Delium for some time, and I finally got the time to do it. On the surface it is a minor battle in the Peloponnesian war, but in fact it was quite significant. It, arguably, turned the tide of the war and marked the first time that a written record was made of a deliberate use of a cavalry reserve in the heat of the battle.

  2. What i like more about this channel apart from the awesome detailed videos is the fact that they read the comments and reply…they care about their followers not like some who only do it for the money
