    Your 'Glorious Revolution' button doesn't work!

    Also, I never got to mention before; that your old ten minute history logo actually represents 5 ~ 7 minutes more than it does 10 minutes.

    I can't find "The Glorious Revolution" on your site. I have generally been able to go to your page and find any video that didn't work with the links shown in the video. In this case "The Glorious Revolution" doesn't even seem to exist. I'll keep looking.

    Glad to see Worcester mentioned. It was the last battle of the civil war, so very much important. But also many Scottish soldiers lost their lives at the battle of Powick Bridge as part of the first English Civil War, with Powick being just outside of Worcester. The last battle of the third war took place at Fort Royal in Sidbury, south of the city centre and just outside of the old City Walls before they were destroyed.

    This seems to be a running theme in revolutions. Fight against a tyrannical government, only for said tyrannical government to return after the people who fought against the tyrannical government became more tyrannical than the tyrannical government and after finally kicking the bucket the people don’t know what to do so they decide to go with the tyrannical government from before…

    >5:48 the Irish campaign was financed through something called The Adventures Act and the campaign was largely financed through loans that would have to be paid back through the confiscation of Irish land the amount of Which Wich if calculated for inflation today would be two trillion dollars. The adventures Act is also where Barack Obama president of the United States came up with his phrase blood and treasure

    One key point missed. In 1659, The Treaty of the Pyrenees was signed between Spain and France. This ended two generations of continuing conflict (cold or otherwise) between the Hapsburg and Bourbon monarchies. It also cemented France the premier power in western Europe.
    A power that now had a free hand to invade Republican Britain and place Charles on the throne as a puppet monarch. Hence why Parliament was so keen to come to an agreement with the would be king.

    Pretty sure there's something wrong here, if we had a Republic why do still have a Monarch? The Common Wealth of England is not and never has been a Republic, it's a constitutional Monarchy. This means the idiots who fear a none provable existence of a deity have not got rid of their supposedly deity enacted leader choice and us poor bloody peasants to this very day must keep paying taxes to them instead of to the treasury where it could be of better use.

    England is being destroyed today by their so-called "leaders" because of their evil genocide against the Irish. Usury and Sodomy have been loosed on the country by the Ruling Class to destroy the indigenous people of England and it appears that if they don't soon wake up, they will be ruled by Africans and Muslims. It's time for the UK to pay reparations to the Irish.

    So much of what Cromwell did has been propagandized and skewered by hateful contemporaries and successive historiographical works. I'd like an objective study on the man that isn't filled with whinging from the Emerald Isle, et al. This video DOES NOT cover it. In fact you're best of researching and studying the man from various angles to best formulate an objective and fair appraisal. Youtube vids are good to a point but are dangerous sources of info because they can be broadcast by uncredited people fro their mums basements.

    Also the Wars of the Three Kingdoms is generally a more acceptable term in Irish and Scottish History

    The British only fought with bows and currently only fight on sea because they shit themselves at the prospect of having to fight anyone directly (like men); no wonder the modern-day British default war

    strategy consists of hiding their island, keeping a strong navy to prevent anyone from landing there so as to avoid having to fight anyone directly and, the most important part, BEG the United States (Britain's historic boyfriend), to please come save them. That's why they've made so much of the battle of Trafalgar when, in real-life, it had a little practical immediate effect and Napoleon barely sighed when receiving the news. But the British keep celebrating that victory because fighting on sea is all they can do, whenever they fight at land they get their sorry asses kicked even against "inferior" enemies such as Elphinstone's army in Afghanistan, Isandlwana, the American revolutionary war, Dunkirk, the Jews at Palestine, the Dutch at Medway (after which the British lost their fleet which meant their island was open to invasion after which they panicked and surrendered ending the war rather than fighting like men), Buenos Aires (twice) and Singapore, among many many others; and the only victories they've had have been by surprise attacks (such as the batte of the River Plate), ambushes (just like they did at the battle of Jutland or Cape Matapan) or by using overwhelming numbers (like they did with the Bismark: in the first encounter two German ships, including the Bismarck, fought against three British ships which included the most powerful British ship, the HMS Prince of Wales, known as "the pride of the Royal Navy", the Bismarck alone defeated the three British ships and easily destroyed the HMS Prince of Wales, after which the British fled and only came back in overwhelming numbers, sending 12 ships against the Bismarck; this situation also happened in the naval battles of Narvik in World War II when the Royal Navy attacked the German warships off Narvik, when the Germans counterattacked the British quickly fled losing almost half of its ships, but the Royal Navy would only come back with overwhelming numbers: twice as many ships the Germans had, then and only then would they "avenge" their defeat at Narvik). That's why in Corunna they used their favorite tactic: be defeated and escape by sea (the same one used in Dunkirk). Also, they have no problem whatsoever betraying their allies if it furthers its interests such as when they bombarded Copenhagen even though Denmark was not at war with Britain (they did this to destroy the Danish fleet so Napoleon couldn't use it just in case Napoleon conquered Denmark, or when the French surrendered in World War II and the British demanded the French hand over all of their ships to them (they were terrifyied that that Hitler could use them to invade Britain) and when the French refused the British immediatly forgot about their ertswhile "allies" and attacked the French fleet by surprise at Mers-el Kebir or when they betrayed the Portuguese (their oldest allies with whom they'd maintained an alliance treaty since 1386) by sending them an ultimatum in 1890 demanding them to evacuate some of their African colonies and once they did they quickly moved to occupy those areas just so the Britsh could have a continuous land connection between South Africa and Egypt or during the Seven Years War: the British always seek a powerful ally with a powerful land army (as the British are too cowardly to fight like men) to protect them and fight for them and the United States didn't exist yet so they tricked Prussia into joining them and paid the Prussians to fight on the continent in their place but as soon as the British attained their goals in the other theaters of the war they immediatly forgot about their Prussian "allies" and suddenly stopped the cash flow to Prussia and abandoned them just at the height of the war, leaving the Prussians to their own devices to fight alone against France, Austria and Russia, almost resulting in the destruction of Prussia, something every country in Europe took note of; or in Norway during World War II where the British arrived to assist the Norwegians against the Germans but fled after several humilliating defeats by numerically inferior German forces, in this case the British fled in secret leaving their Norwegian "allies" behind and without telling them they were going to flee. During the Napoleonic Wars, the British were at their worst, paying others to fight for them, causing the Emperor of Austria to say "The English are flesh traffickers, they fight others to fight in their place", while Napoleon said the British were "a people of cowardly marine merchants".
