    The Battle Of Thermopylae Dissected – The Last Stance, Sources & Scholarly Debates

    In the summer of 480 BC a large Persian army marched towards Greece. The ancient historiographer Herodotus dramatizes this by stating that their footsteps made the ground tremble and their thirst emptied vast rivers, leaving behind just miserable rivulets. This force approached the mountain pass of Thermopylae, where a small squad of Greek defenders, led by the famous Spartan king Leonidas, expected them with sharp spears. What led to this situation? One of the most common narratives in contemporary historiography explains it as follows: As the young Persian empire expanded towards Europe in the 6th century BC, Greece and Asia Minor were caught in the Persian sphere of influence. At…

    The French Revolution: Crash Course World History #29

    Hi, my name is John Green, this is Crash Course World History, and today we’re going to talk about The French Revolution. Admittedly, this wasn’t the French flag until 1794, but we just felt like he looked good in stripes. As does this guy. Huh? So, while the American Revolution is considered a pretty good thing, the French Revolution is often seen as a bloody, anarchic mess, which… Mr. Green, Mr. Green! I bet, like always, it’s way more complicated than that. Actually no. It was pretty terrible. Also, like a lot of revolutions, in the end it exchanged an authoritarian regime for an authoritarian regime. But even if the…

    Tea, Taxes, and The American Revolution: Crash Course World History #28

    Hi, I’m John Green, this is Crash Course World History and today you aren’t going to get a blow by blow chronology of the American Revolution, and you aren’t going to get cool biographical details about Thomas Jefferson or George Washington. But you are going to get me not wearing any pants. Mr. Green, Mr. Green! Did you know that George Washington might have had slave teeth implanted into his jaw? Yeah, I did, Me from the Past, and while it’s fun to focus on metaphorically resonant details, what we’re concerned with here is why the American Revolution happened and the extent to which it was actually revolutionary. Plus, for…

    Macedonian Wars: First Roman Intervention in the Hellenic Affairs

    Popular depictions of the Roman world often show us the picture during the late Republic or early Empire. But when did Roman domination of the Mediterranean basin become all but inevitable? How was it that Rome eventually grew to encompass the mighty Hellenistic kingdoms, and how did the legions come to establish themselves as the dominant military system for almost a millennia – overshadowing Alexander the Great’s phalanx? You will learn about that in our new series on the Macedonian Wars. LipSurf is a new, free browser extension that let’s you control the web with your voice.

    The Industrial Revolution: Crash Course European History #24

    Hi I’m John Green and this is Crash Course European History. So we’re going to turn our attention now to the Industrial Revolution, one of the most significant developments in human history. Like, imagine with me that it’s 1820. I got this idea from the economist Robert Gordon by the way. You live in, say, England. You probably work in agriculture. When you walk to town, you’re either pulling your own cart, or if you’re lucky you have a horse. You have no running water or electricity. When you wash your few items of clothing, you do so by hand. You cook over a fire. You think of time not…
