Can anyone recommend me some good military history/war history books? Examples: The Forgotten 500: The Untold Story of the Men Who Risked All for the Greatest Rescue Mission of World War II, A Higher Call, Spearhead, The Trial of Adolf Hitler: The Beer Hall Putsch and the Rise of Nazi Germany.
Thanks everyone for giving a bit of advice on stuff, love this community and glad I discovered boo, now it's my turn to give back When a person you love betrays your trust and leaves without a word, but you still miss them after to the point of depressing episodes then remember this, you don't...
Bodies On The Line
https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/691706/bodies-on-the-line-by-lauren-rankin/ Picked this up from the "new non-fiction" shelf at my library last week. Just finished it and would highly recommend to anybody who wants a well-researched (and timely) discussion of abortion clinic escorting, and...
I recently started learning about the history of Siam (now Thailand) and the architecture is...
Siamese history is unbelievable. Siam was one of the few countries in the region that didn't get invaded and colonized by Europeans, and it was through no small effort from the brilliant Siamese king. As I learned about that (highly recommend the video https://youtu.be/8kkr4lOL3lE), I was exposed...
Funny Historical Moments
Let's hear your favorite hilarious moments in history! One of mine is Caligula's war against Neptune, ording his soldiers to attack the sea at the shoreline and had them collect seashells as trophies . True or not, it's hilarious.
Not sure who needs this, but...
You must remember what you are and what you have chosen to become, and the significance of what you are doing. There are wars and defeats and victories of the human race that are not military and that are not recorded in the annals of history. Remember that while you're trying to decide what to do.
Nearly 38 years, and I'm still hoping to one day experience a healthy relationship. My history has been... Discouraging.
Does anyone have any recommendations for any good nonfiction books? Memoirs, biographies, history, science, etc?
We've all heard that we are likely in the matrix.. Some scientists believe that we have a 1 in 3 shot, others like Elon Musk believe it's a 50/50 shot. This stems from the inevitable fact that AI will eventually take over. Probably in less than 80 years. I believe when AI takes over it will not be...
Who is someone from history, you’re related to, that quite surprised you? For me, Erik the Red. Found out he’s my 8th Great Grandfather. Ironically enough, I gave my D&D character his last name before I even found out.
Short rant 🙃
Does anyone else find it extremely infuriating how all Hispanics in the US seem to be lumped together into a single identity ? Most of the time the only thing we have in common is the language we speak. Assuming that the over 20 countries with Spanish as their official language share the same...
What is the single most innovative/impactful invention in human history?
I personally think it’s the microscope. I think prior to that, people didn’t have much evidence for things they couldn’t necessarily “see”. By being able to tangibly “see” something, which was previously thought to exist but unprovable… I imagine this sparked more curiosity or confirmed for some...
