It's unbelievable how Caesar handled the rebellious legions in Italy.

History isn't what happened - it's what people say happened. The fact there's still ongoing discussions and disagreements about Caesar's character proves this. I'm glad your series on Caesar offers multiple perspectives, making it as close to an unbiased account as humanly possible.

The irony of his being a great general is that he was just finally entering a time of peace, with most threats dealt with/controlled/diminishing, when he was finally taken out at home by friends/colleagues... not in battle with enemies.
The most overrated general ever could very well be old Robert E. Lee. He ended up losing the war for crying out loud
@konsyjes Yıl önce
Yeah, I doubt he would've walked into the Parthian desert and gotten caught flat-footed like Crassus. He would have probably established a solid supply line, crossing into Bithynia and started assessing the situation and establishing an information network to analyze the enemy, then started operations to disrupt the Parthian's strategic control. Once they were starting to get desperate he would wait for an opportunity and then fast march a small but select army and show up at their camp overnight and rush them with his veterans. That would have DEFINITELY driven his Roman enemies mad XD

Alexander the Great or Caesar, the argument will rage forever; but personally I believe it was in fact Caesar. His ability to adopt to multi situation, on Sea, Land, and Horses, against opponents that were not just incredibly diverse, but also equal to him ( on paper ). Yet he prevailed in almost every single battle.
True to some extent, as he defeated the Gauls, Germans, Romans, Egyptians and the Pontics.
@MarekDohojda 8 aylar önce
@@karthikparameswaran7813 Exactly! At the end of the day as good as Alexander was his opponents were much less diverse, and much more known by him. Caesar also defeated Pomeii the Great who didn't earn this title by paying people off. He was great general with a long record of winning. Nothing against Alexander, OBVIOUSLY, but personally I think Caesar has more robust resume.
@MarekDohojda 4 aylar önce
@@SkyGlitchGalaxy Certainly don't disagree with the length of time. However we aren't given opportunity to do "What if"... he didn't live past 34. Who knows? May be he would have settled down, spawn more children than Ginghis and really go Persian? Who knows. With risks he was taking, he could just as easily have been killed in the next bottle he fought. Bottom line to compare we have to compare achievements as they happened. Of course the whole exercise of comparing is exercise in judgment anyway, so it's completely subjective.
For me the answer would be Hannibal. Absolutely demolishes rome for several years, while not using what is considered the most effective fighting force of his time. Ceaser had the Legions, Alexander had companion cavalry and the newly improve Phalanx. Hannibal had a collection of Iberians, and then mostly whatever guys he picked up to replace the forces he lost, mostly Gauls. All while deep in enemy territory with no consistent supply line.
@MarekDohojda Aylar önce
@@kharnthebetrayer8251Here are few issues I have with Hannibal. 1) He was pretty poor at strategy, even though he was excellent at tactics 2) He ultimately lost to Scipio in what is as fair fight as it is possible to have. Yes, it is true that Scipio had more seasoned troops; however Hannibal had his favorites, plus knowledge of terrain, and ultimately was backed against the walls (literately) meaning his troops likely were more motivated (disputed). 3) our knowledge of Hannibal comes after his death. Most of the knowledge that we do have comes from Polybius who was born 16 years (I think) after Cannae. Most of our knowledge comes from Livy who is pretty notorious at building up Roman enemies, and making wins far more significant (not to mention pushing for Augustus to have right to rule). Therefore there is quite a big possibility that Hannibal wasn't nearly as powerful as presented, especially in light of rather strange reluctance of Carthage to help him, even though Roman treatment of defeated after 1st defeat was rather well known. Bottom line is we are pretty certain of Alexander and Caesar, but Hannibal is more questionable. Plus again he DID lost to Scipio , while Caesar nor Alexander lost a battle (technically Caesar did, but the loss was more of a draw given Caesar's pretty brilliant withdrawal).

@johnkovac9613 2 yıl önce
Wow, what a great job! I never realized all the issues Caesar had to deal with. His life was no cake walk by any measure. His ability to understand human behavior and serve as an outstanding leader can not be overstated. It made me realize how impressive he was and how political Rome was. Thanks again for all the research and level of detail needed to understand the man.
Even the likes of Pompi and Cito were very deep characters with their own goals and objectives, which I don't think is stated enough. The fact that the former had the foresight to abandon Rome (something I imagine most Romans would consider inconceivable) managed to raise a relatively inexperienced army and fully understood his own strengths and weaknesses (which was probably why he legitimately didn't want a pitched battle with Caesar, given the relative inexperience and lack of cohesiveness within his own troops, which ultimately is precisely was his undoing.) made the war in Greece compelling stuff. Plus even after his latest defeat he was fully committed to trying again until his assassination in Egypt. As much as war is a terrible thing and these were incredibly ambitious people; they also were incredibly well learned folks who knew how to wage war. Sure Caesar won and wrote history, but wow it certainly was never easy for him either.

This is one of the best documentary series online anywhere. The graphical representations, imagery and strategic maps are aids and tools for the narrator. Sadly many documentaries try to overblow the fluff (too much eye candy, real-life enactments, etc.), and miss the mark. It's the narration, script and sequential telling of the history that matters...and you do an excellent job! I wish more documentaries were done this way.

Agreed. Ptolemy at 8:00 is clearly modelled after HBO's Rome, but the entire thing is like watching cutscenes from a good RTS computer game, only with real history, and it actually looks more "real" and professional compared to mediocre live action "dramatizations" seen in documentaries. Videos like this should set the example for historical documentaries. The aesthetics of computer/video games can be used for something which is both enjoyable and educational.

Hollywood had a time when they made a bunch of movies set in that era, like Ben Hun, Cleopatra and Spartacus. Those were really expensive movies and the high costs helped to instigate the studios to give directors and writers freedom to create movies like Taxi Driver and Star Wars, then proving to be much more popular and profitable. Honestly, I doubt anyone is spending cash on that anymore, not when studios can put on a MARVEL or DC logo on the screen and have the audience cream its own pants, with the added bonus of not having to strictly adapt a hotly debated part of history.

Everything the history Channel should have been. What an amazing documentary. I never knew about all the reforms Ceaser made after the civil, especially the redistribution of wealth and land. It most definitely casts him in a different light, or at least offers a different perspective.
We know why the Hersch Corporation-owned History Channel does not go into the fine details of conflict, for they'd run the risk of exposing their own financial interests/donations in modern history's violent conflicts. And we know that most Americans have little time or inclination to know about Ancient history, therefor the History Channel is just a constant stream of "hitler is bad" and "guns are scary" that all said, your point is still important and i agree with your sentiment.

3:25 I still don't understand why the Egyptian court thought killing Pompey would be beneficial to them. They had to have known that violating guest right would have made them unreliable. Keeping Pompey alive would have allowed Egypt room to maneuver. Caesar wants Pompey dead or handed to him? Attempt to extract concessions (ex. Debt write-off, support Ptolemy against Cleopatra) while using Guest Right as a reason to demand a price in exchange for Pompey, or present him to Caesar to kill. Cave if Caesar cannot be bargained with. Do something that will result in a tangible benefit for Egypt. Caesar doesn't care for Pompey? No harm done, can use Pompey to strengthen Egypt. Caesar is determined to attack Egypt despite diplomacy? Hire Pompey.

@spamme7524 2 yıl önce
They suspected part of their army might turn to him, and they also suspected that their young king (whom they were in control of) might come under influence of Pompey. Neither is desirable to them. So killing him probably seemed like the safest option; with Caesar the clear victor in the civil war why would they expect he wouldn't be grateful for the head of his enemy? I don't think it's such a weird decision.
@Driimweever 2 yıl önce
@@spamme7524 Couldn't they just imprison him until deciding what to do with him? Did Pompey have a big support base in Egypt that the Ptolomeic court had to take into account? I would have thought after his loss at Pharssalus whatever support he had would have evaporated. I'm no expert on this so I'm just asking.

@@Driimweever Pompey had made a very sucessful campaign on the East before, so his name must have been well known and he had plenty of client kings.
