  1. The ending reminds me of the Battle of Cannae but on a smaller scale. I think it was the History Marche video (and I forget the quote but it gives me shivers) how Hannibal left 'tonnes of flesh' to rot in the sun after enclosing the Romans

  2. Hey HistoryMarche I see you've got that 1 million subs! Congratulations! Your channel is amazing and your voice work is 2nd on youtube only to Kings and Generals. You're AWESOME. Thanks for all of the excellent content, I have learned so much

  3. lol, the words Austrian and War Machine don't go together.
    I say this as an Austrian.

    We don't have a bad military or bad men in it, we just had more bad politicians regarding our armed forces than good ones.

  4. Could you do a story on the Viking conquest of western Scotland? Particularly the Battle of Largs and the events leading up to it. It was the last Viking battle fought in Scotland.
