  1. This was a campaign without planning to encounter any resistance and planning for supply lines/ retreat by small passes.
    Small passes are even without an ambush and only blockaded disastrous in case of a retreat.
    I do not know much about the education level of this time, but I think this was already part of the warfare 101 for many strategists.

  2. Can't wait for the Pan-Turks or Pan-Slavists in the comment section to start spreding propaganda.
    Anyway, I bet they call Krum a khan in the video, even though all available Bulgarian sources of that time refer to him as Knyaz, or Kanas u bigi (Prince from God).
