    The Romans would interchange tired soldiers and return them to the front lines when ready. The Germans beat the Legions through guerilla war tactics which serves the individual warrior well as he fights on his will alone and not dependant on his brothers.

    The Nordid phenotype would be good for quick agile skirmishes and because of his wits he would be good for rank and file combat.

    The Nordid is like a wolf. Keen, slender and fast. Beautiful in combat and when killing.

    The borreby is like a rhino. visually threatening but will sink the morale of others because of his ugliness. He would see his own truths upon unsheathing his blade and mercy himself with a rope and a tree.

    Speaking of Roman Legionnares...
    Were Meds smaller and more gracile than even Halstatt Nordics?
    And Borrebies were Nordid, not Halstatt Nordic (to the Norwegian Chap)

    -_-

    Nordid and borreby are two different phenotypes.

    I'll quote someone who knows their stuff.

    An individual who is ‘Nordic’ belongs to and is ancestrally linked to one of the Nordic nations.

    Remember, you can be Nordic and not Nordid (there are significant Borreby and Baltid populations living in Nordic nations). Equally, you can be Nordid (typically tall, depigmented with blond hair and blue eyes) and belong to a non-Nordic nation (like Austria for example).

    Here are your root causes for the lack of a taste for war in the modern Nordic.

    There was this:



    And then this:



    And of course this:



    War is no longer a question of the soul but a matter of science and technology. War has been perverted. This knowledge combined with the European experience of what total war is, the loss of empire and the current lack of an external enemy plus the financial burden of maintaining a military force which can rival the American and Chinese military aparatus, a task which is beyond the capabilities of any individual Germanic country in Europe, reveals why we're not spoiling for a fight anymore.

    Trade, comfort, safety ... are the order of the day - and not morality.

    When we're talking about geopolitical decisions made by the state such as war, religion's role is not decisive at all.

    Turning the other cheek has not one iota to do with geopolitics. The traditional interpretation of what it means to turn the other cheek is very different from what secularized christians or atheists think it is. The prince of peace is not a pacifist.

    Turning the other cheek is fine, but not when someone spits you in the face. Whenever your neighbor needs you. Or when your city or nation is besieged. Or when you see a woman raped in front of you. And there can be no divine forgiveness without penitence and doing time for a crime, that is only logical.

    No, I don't think any phenotype is more tough and warlike than others.

    Really, this phenotype-pornography is just making Skadi look ridiculous.

    Yes. The evidence from Roman tombs shows that they were short and gracile Meds, definitely short by modern European standards. In other words, they were ideally adapted for urban living in overcrowded cities, and for mass-formations such as their lockstep legions in battle.

    Among the first things Romans noticed about the Germanic tribes was their large physical size. I guess you could compare the the big Germanic tribesmen to wild wolves, and the smaller Romans to domesticated attack dogs.

    You are talking about a movie, not fact.

    Also, nordic does not mean nordid.
    You are right, it all depends if the question is meant to mean Nordic people, or the Nordid phenotype because Nordic is not a phenotype

    I agree that one certain Phenotype is not more war like than the other. I think the area and culture defines that.
    All things must come to the soul from it's roots, from where it is planted. The that is beside the running water is fresher, and gives more fruit.

    On a side note:
    i feel an think any nordics an those with at least a little nordic blood are proud of our warrior ancestors, as a descendant of King Rollo's Vikings (me family is norman, who as we all know are the descendants of King Rollo an his vikings) i know i am!

    Christianity doesn't plays a large role anyway in the European spirit of the first half of the Middle Ages. For example, the Saxons only slowly started to convert to Christianity in the 9th century, after the military force used by Charlemagne. And the Northern Germanics didn't even start to convert in significant numbers until the 11th century.

    But even after this period Europeans mixed Christianity with northern/pagan values, resulting in the code of chivalry. Europe has always kept it's pragmatic view on the need to fight when needed. At least, we did until the 50's of the 20 century.

    Honor and defend the northern people,
    Honor and defend the northern lands,
    Walk the Northern Path,
    Sigr!

    War is now obsolete.

    The advent of nuclear weapons means that there can be no profit or gain through industrialised countries going to war with each other.

    The genius of von Manstein or Rommel count for nothing against a few nuclear weapons.

    But where the Nordics especially the Nordids great warriors? you bet.
    The Vikings were used as mercenaries in the middle east. Blonde haired blue eyes and northern steel put fear in those who dared them.
    I'm Norwegian, and I have black hair and brown eyes. While my brothers all have brown hair and green eyes. Ever heard of the Norwegian king Halfdan the Black? The black for his black hair? He was the one that united Norway from tribes and warclans into a kingdom. He passed away and gave his remaining kingdom to Harald fairhair - his son who became the first king of Norway.

    I am quite insulted when I see that most people in this forums see Nords or Germanics as ONLY light haired peoples.
