  • I'm pretty sure this is a large example of the bias in this channel. George Washington is portrayed as a great and moral general, with everything right about him, whilst the greatest general of all time is portrayed as a short angry creep. I mean, I enjoy your content, but it's pretty unfair to tales against the Americans and British stories. I mean, China had absolutely nothing given to them in the WW2 episode even though they were one of the big 3 and was one of the largest factors to the defeat of Japan.

  • 1) Corsica was occupied about 4000 years ago by the Corsicans, who gave the island its name, they were a tribe of the Ligurians, who were the oldest Italic people. 2) was occupied by the Roman Empire for about 600 years. 3) in the Middle Ages and in the modern age it was the land of Genoa and Tuscany, and its inhabitants even today have Italian origin. Corsica has therefore been Italian for more than 4000 years, since prehistoric times. In fact, Napoleon's parents were Italian nobles from Tuscany and Genoa. So stop saying he was French. He was a French in spirit (perhaps) But not ethnically. He was an Italian, like Julius Caesar, Trajan. Etc. An Italic-style conqueror. Italic phisicall, small in height but very aggressive. Nothing Gallic. End.

  • He gives the example of Caesar as being born into a noble family, but his father was not succesfull, not even a consul nor even rich, so his background wasn't that promising. Napoleon's father too was nobility, although minor and poor, so in reality this characteristic he shares with Caesar, and not as OverSimplified presents it, as being contrasting.
