🚩The Battle of the Field of Blood and the broader struggle for Aleppo was an intensely complex affair, drawing in many factions—Frankish, Turkish, Armenian, Arab, and Byzantine. Like so many of the Crusader States’ wars, it was rarely a simple matter of Christians versus Muslims.

    🚩I apologise for the delay. My father is seriously ill and, without going into too much detail, we have surgery scheduled for June 22nd. Needless to say this has caused a lot of stress and worry, and it's quite difficult for me to focus. I will try to complete the Battle of Badr as soon as possible and also work on Hannibal episodes. See you all soon!

  2. Great videos👍👏🤘 Please make video about Georgian kingdom in XI-XII centuries and about king David IV The Builder and greatest battle of Didgori where Georgia leading king David IV defeated Seljuks by head of Ilgaz in 1121year !!!!

  3. Hi HM will you at some point cover some more from Scandinavia?? Conquest of the baltic and nothern germany. Or maybe some of the raids on Paris. Og even the settling in sicily 🙏

  4. I like how people would just die of whatever disease regardless of how smart capable or affluent they were, oh the middle ages how I miss you !!

  5. So close for the crusaders… but I always thought that the crusaders had a really bad problem of centralised command and structure. Why Rainald forces didn't charge? Surely their veteran Captains and Knights could have lead the charge, but I think that they were more concern about who will pay their wages than who would win that battle. But again I think this was a mayor issue for all kingdoms/armies and polities in the middle ages. It's a pity in terms of tactic and strategy that in the moment of breakthrough the franks fail to exploit the situation.
