Favorite historical era and figure?
« on: September 22, 2016, 04:27:00 pm »
I love history myself, so I'm curious to know what you guys think about this!

I'm not sure if I have a favorite era or figure, personally. There are so many that are interesting to learn about.

The Sengoku Period, and our beloved Nobunaga Oda, Daimyo (And fool) of Owari.
The man was Daimyo of a minor power, almost too small and unimportant to even be a valid target for the Imagawa clan to target, and yet this man lead is forces to victory against massively overwhelming odds and entered the running to become shogun, on top of that, he established a meritocracy within his ranks, which was incredibly open minded and forward thinking for a man of status to do in Japan, a country so mired in Rank and File crap at the time most people couldn't attain wealth or power, and implemented an open market system, as well as being one of the first people to openly trade with the "Western Barbarians".

My favorite time period is World War II. World War II was the largest war in the history of the world, which effected nearly every country and person on Earth. Struggling through the ashes of World War I, an economically and socially crippled Germany elected Adolf Hitler as the Chancellor of Germany. This lead to the most intense war ever faught with a deep history and backstory. I actually prefer the Atlantic campaign more than the Pacific campaign because of the larger scale in Europe. The Battle of Normandy was probably the battle that defined the whole war and how destructive it really was. The Battle of the Buldge is another one of the epic battles of the war. I also cherish World War II's naval history, with great wonders such as the Bismarck and the U.S.S. Missouri. Probably my favorite historical figure from World War II was Winston Churchill who lead the British through the war, giving his people hope while the Nazi soldiers were ever so close, and ensuring that freedom shall not perish from the Earth at the hand of such evil.

I love learning about the early 1900s, especially in the United States.
The French Revolution is also neat. I took an art class where we talked a little bit about the cause and effects, last summer.

I know it wasn't the question, but I want to point out some other events that I find really interesting:
-Salem Witch Trials (Especially Giles Corey)
-MK Ultra
-AIDS Epidemic
-Prohibition
-The whole Charles Manson thing
-Stonewall

The American Civil War is a great period that I like to learn about. I also really like Abraham Lincoln who is also from that era.
