  1. This is one of the most influential battles in history. After this battle turkic tribes converted to Islam, which lead to the rise of the Seljuk Turks and Ottomans centuries later. This battle is so underrated!

  2. Well done as usual the only ones who put up great things on youtube are HistoryMarche and Epic History Tv and even you guys collabrated with them in their flagship series of Napoleonic wars.
    Thanks for feeding us for free 👏👏
