    tough choice between 3 Kingdoms and Crusades, but since the only thing I like about the Crusades was the Hashishin I guess I'll give the 3 Kingdoms the edge.

    Because if nobody opposed Germany's advances then we might have been kind of screwed.

    I picked the Crusades and WWI/II because these were always the parts of history that fascinated me growing up.

    Include Japan in the list as well. That doesn't mean I think the atomic bomb incident is justified though...

    No too sure of who started it. Forgot most of my historical facts, but to say Germany was the major baddy seems kinda fake to me. Japan also did stuff that the Germans would normally do in the war. Remember the Rape of Nanking? It's an atrocity on the par with the Holocaust. Only difference is that the latter got much more attention. It's like Japan is the lower profile one of the two, but both just are as evil.

    P.S: What about Italy in WWII? Dunno what kind of screw up stuff the country did in that era...

    Everything that occurred in WW2 was a direct result of the failures in negotiations and reparations that came after WW1. If things had been sorted out better then Germany wouldn't have suffered as viciously and Hitler may not have been able to take all the power that he did.

    Thus: The alliance system that caused WW1 to reach the level it did also indirectly caused WW2

    I.R.Shogun spoke with wisdom again!I agree!

    But I also agree with azuren on Germany not being the major bad guy!

    And by the way I thought warrior_squirrel meant something else actually...but I do agree with the others that Germany started the war when the Germans attacked more and more countries after their took their lands back.

    Mussolini had delusions of grandeur and he wanted to restore the Roman Empire.He allied with Hitler and to prove to Hitler that he too is a great conqueror and equal to Hitler he tried to conquer Greece.In fact,he requested that Greece let Italy use her soil and bases...in a few words to surrender to Italy.But we said no,they attacked and bragged about their great numbers and far superior weaponry,had their asses kicked,Greece reached to about half Albania and then Hitler was forced to intervene to save his goon Mussolini from the shame.

    Italy also fought some battles in Africa I think...but from what I know most Italian soldiers DIDN'T want to fight.They just wanted to drink,dance and flirt and have a nice life.That's why from all the conquerors of WWII that passed from here,the Italians were the ones who treated the people best.

    Germany essentially initiated WW2 by invading Poland. I do believe they were also the central side in the "axis". I mean how can you not say the German's weren't the "main" badguys of WW2? A shitload revolved around them.

    Yes the Nanking Massacre was a particularly brutal event that doesn't get the highlighting it should. I can't really say the Holocaust was worse, because they were both pretty ****ed up events that after a certain stage doesn't matter. In that sense I mean, "what difference does it make if you're immolated at 1000 degrees than at 1million degrees? It just doesn't matter after a certain amount".

    Well yes the Germans were the main axis country.Without Germany the Axis wouldn't do much.

    Well it's just that...Germany could have been ok but Hitler wanted that Lebensraum...as if Germany wasn't big enough at that time...and he conquered Poland...then they attacked France,they conquered Bruxelles,Belgium,Holland,Denmark...wtf....then they wanted more...they conquered Norway,they conquered Czechoslovakia,they attacked Yugoslavia and Greece and then Russia...

    As much as I love hearing stories about WWII, mainly from my grandpa :) I really love the middle ages and the crusades.
