Would he have won if he attacked Rome?

Was there any chance for Paulus to breakthrough the encirclement if he tried or was he doomed from the beginning?
Isn't the west now in a nihilistic state where It can't assert objective measures of beauty and morality?
How can I compete with other cultures when they don't have such self defeating problems?
"Societies exist under three forms sufficiently distinguishable. 1. Without government, as among our Indians. 2. Under governments wherein the will of every one has a just influence, as is the case in England in a slight degree, and in our states in a great one. 3. Under governments of force: as is the case in all other monarchies and in most of the other republics. To have an idea of the curse of existence under these last, they must be seen. It is a government of wolves over sheep. It is a problem, not clear in my mind, that the 1st. condition is not the best. But I believe it to be inconsistent with any great degree of population. The second state has a great deal of good in it. The mass of mankind under that enjoys a precious degree of liberty and happiness. It has it’s evils too: the principal of which is the turbulence to which it is subject. But weigh this against the oppressions of monarchy, and it becomes nothing. Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem. Even this evil is productive of good. It prevents the degeneracy of government, and nourishes a general attention to the public affairs. I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.1 Unsuccesful rebellions indeed generally establish the incroachments on the rights of the people which have produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions, as not to discourage them too much. It is a medecine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, Paris, January 30, 17872
Transylvania. Are the Vlach in Transylvanian Romanized Dacians or are they migrating Latin-speakers from the south?
Who does Dracula land belong to?
Whatever the answer might be, it belongs to Romania now. No amount of bickering and name-calling will change this.
There will be a lot of " WE WUZ ROMANS" and "THERE WUZ NOONE HERE WHEN WE INVADED FROM THE PUSZTA". It's all useless shitflinging that will change nothing now.
Is WW2 the most plebbiest period in history?
You always see double digit IQ retards in their threads while on other periods they're very rare.
I'm not saying that it's not interesting, it is
It's just it brings the worst morons to the discussion, be it naziboo stormfags or tankie leftypol fags.
It's just irritating because every ww2 revolves around /pol/ faggotry, holocaust denial, what if Hitler did "insert something" here, etc.
*nasalises your vowel*
This was the prequel DLC they paired with that WWI game when the players complained you didn"t get to see enough fighting in Paris.
cut plot line for the WW2 season. They killed him off and replaced him because the producers thought he would overshadow the characters they wanted to focus on
>Japanese lose 4 fucking carriers in Midway
holy fuck, what went so wrong?
was it just bad luck or were they just that fucking incompetent?
Bad damage control procedures, like the fact that Japanese ships had a dedicated damage control team rather than giving everyone the training like on American ships, results in much of the losses Japan experienced that weren't instant sinks.
Using pre-treaty carriers (minus the Shokaku-class, which were treaty cheats anyway) were extremely fragile. When you combine extreme vulnerability (as in, one bomb has a chance to kill the whole carrier) with the fact that technology and carrier tactics of the time of any country was incapable of stopping an enemy strike from hitting your carrier, you had to be prepared to lose your carriers if the enemy found you.
US could have lost all 3 carriers if the second strike from the Hiryu had found CV-6's task force rather than hitting CV-5 again.
I wan't to add some Allied and Axis stuff to my history folder.
Giant dump incoming.
