Re: The IP Man

Agreed it is said Alexander was broke...but its fare to say he must have had some kind of financial backing...banking on huge returns if or when Alexander did get the Persian Money...Military Conquests id say always have financial backing some where hopping on on interest and capital gains

Re: The IP Man

Spitamenese...A grain of Sand? We all give Great credence to Alexanders military and personal achievements,,,On the front of it pretty impressive...I've always thought leaders like Philip and Alexander were total hegemon and supreme commander..But in reality were they or were they all propped up by ...

Re: Philip II of Macedonia: Greater than Alexander

perspective of a Fan? I wouldnt call my self a fan in the Alexander Romance way of thinking...I do feel he was the greatest combatant and Commander in human history. I also accept the rather negatives arther nasty side...I believe him to be as crafty and cunning as any Roman politician...I believe h...

Re: Philip II of Macedonia: Greater than Alexander

I think the Occursed has a chip on his shoulder with Alexander. With regard to Alexanders great generals....Its well documented that he just about ignored every bit of advice given by Parmenio and what do you know he still won. Regarding Chasing Darius after Issus? Only an incompetent general would ...

Doctors nurses and Medics working 18 hour shifts for moderate pay those are heroes. Reall heroes to me are the unsung types...Volunteers carers etc wor...

Re: Philip II of Macedonia: Greater than Alexander

Accursed Indeed your exactly correct without Philip none of it were in the pipe line. But remember those very same generals you mention were more than hesitant in the comming battles..His Generals didn't want to disband the fleet.His generals wanted to Garrison Tyre and go round letting it remain ac...

Re: Medieval Alexander

Constructive hardly rudeness. To point out what it is the Picture does have a beard Alexander didnt. The picture does look like Jesus. I recall you saying St Davids image on the Gold sovereigns cant be said as the famous Alexander on Horse back...It looks more like anything a real Alexander reader w...

Re: Medieval Alexander

To say the Image is Alexander really questions where you got the high ranking in Pothos. The Resemblence is silly to say the least. I hope you dont teach your history Students that Alexander was a bearded Jesus lookalike?

Re: Medieval Alexander

Marcus

Are you losing the plot here,,,,Where in any Alexander the Great histories or literature say Alexander had a moustache let alone a beard...As said looks more like Jesus than any images of the famously Shaven Alexander?

Re: Oration the tool to Fool

Spell bounding is the word...And to be really brief...I cant talk German nor do I understand anything Hitler said...But the speaches were mezmorizing and high drama. To have that kind of enigmatic power goes a long way...I cant say Hitler was good looking or had any attributes to admire but the spea...
