Tomorrow is my birthday. The best gift would be liking and sharing the video. Thank you for all your kind support, we appreciate it!
This channel is amazing. Very well done, addicting and very informative. I love it. You guys should be very proud of what you do.
Damn, Caesar was too lucky
So damn good! Thank you!
That "grappling hooks go pew pew" was pure gold! hahahahahaha!
Lost in enemy territory, with no supply chains and no reinforcements…. just another day at the office for Caesar.
Legend has it that the trolls pulling the siege towers at the battle at Missilia came directly from Osgiliath.
I didn't know that Marcus Terentius Varro, the widely known Latin grammarian, was also a Pompey's general. He wrote the famous DE LINGVA LATINA ("About the Latin Language") by 45 B.C.
Massilians: We're gonna pin Brutus' ship from the sides! Charge!
Brutus: Moves slightly forwards, making the Massilians ships crash each other instead
Nasidius: Noob team, GG end, go next.
Nasidius had left the game
Caesar is literally playing Minecraft and chess at the same time
Brutus is sus
11:56 can anyone tell me what song this is?
Decimus Brutus name does not justified how good of an Admiral he was.
Caesar was playing way too much fortnite.
Caesar builds walls quicker than mine craft!
These documentaries are awesome. Whats also great about them is you leverage the Game Total War Rome 2 for scenes and the music use is awesome.
The magenta vibraphone exemplarily allow because australia physiologically pick like a big effect. wide-eyed, utter cat
HAHA, Grappling hook go PEWPEW!!
they promised not to take arms again but they did took arms again… no wonder all Pompeans Officers were gets kills after
I guess in the old days people go to war to pass time
If ceaser played fortnite he'd dominate hahaha jk
I have for like 4k $ of books on ancient rome, I have red about everything in details until Marcus aurelius, yet this channel still make it more real, more alive, more clear, very well done.
The Pompeians doing some total war tactics, while out there Caesar playing Minecraft with his pal
Winning against Gauls to me wasn't impressive, Rome's Military was just to superior. But these Civil wars by Caeser show greatness, both had the military all about who could fight better.
Caesar is too good. I hope he doesn't get stabbed 23 times
What is wrong with the aspect ratio??
Caesar must've known Pompeii was a total p*ssy. How else do you explain the bold move of leaving the stronghold of Rome to Mark Anthony, travel all the way to Spain to fight a stand off battle. He knew Pompeii would not attack Rome and Sicily from the East.
Pack animals into the river for slowing… what?! such creative guys!
Luck saving an army in real life:
“What great command and leadership”
Plot armor saves John snow:
“This show fucking sucks”
Fortune favors the bold.
There is nothing more sad than war between brothers. Civil wars are the worst kind of wars
So what happened to the Massilians afterwards did they face any repercussions?
Vloggingtrhough history told me this was a great yt channel, and he was right
Caesar was an actual criminal and enemy of the state, but found a way into political immunity, and leveraged Pompey's distance from Rome as a way to simply…conquer it for himself. Then he was outnumbered, outmaneuvered, and outflanked at almost every turn…only to get EXTREMELY lucky over and over again. Opponents would have the upper hand, but make baffling decisions at the worst times to grant Caesar reprieve and/or time to become opportunist. Even though he was ultimately assassinated, his faction still inherited Rome after the war that continued following his death.
It's better to be lucky than good.
Fantastic video and fascinating history. Thanks!
