    Waterloo!

    Germanic nations working together to defeat the latin invader Napoleon, successor to Quinctilius Varus and forerunner of the EU which today takes away the sovereignty of Germanic nations

    The Duke of Wellington:



    Generalfeldmarschall Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher



    These were also joined by forces from the other leading Germanic nations of the time, the Netherlands, Nassau, Brunswick and Hanover





    After this battle, the security of the Germanic homelands was secured until 1914 when the Germanic nations fought eachother at the instigation of outside forces.

    Like the later king Willem II. If I remember correctly his troops had the change to take a small atillery shot at Napoleon himself . Need to look up the details however for the exact story.

    Is this the same bloated Holy Roman Empire that millions of Germanics spent centuries under its yoke, and battling against trying to destroy it? The same which killed one-third of its German inhabitants in the 30 Years War, trying to crush upsurgent Germanic patriots? :

    Though not a battle per se, the March across the Belts 1658 may have been one of the most important single events in Swedish history. Once the Swedish Army sat foot on Zealand King Frederick III of Denmark yielded. A couple of weeks later Denmark ceded the three Scanian Provinces to Sweden under the Treaty of Roskilde.
    Had Sweden not gained Scania she would have been locked up in the Baltic sea, at risk of once again having to pay the costly Danish transit duties for passage through the Řresund strait.


    A real battle was the one that took place at Lund in 1676 when Christian V of Denmark tried to recapture Scania. It was a decisive, but costly, victory for the Swedish Army. Not that it ended the war but if the Danes had succeeded at Lund the Swedish Army had been forced to retreat from Scania and not return for a long time, maybe never. As it happened the Swedes could stay in the province and eventually force the Danes back to Zealand.
    If the Danes had won at Lund the Scandinavian map would probably have looked a lot different today.

    The greatest battle of the Germanic tribes was surely the battle of Teutoberg Wald in about 9AD. Arminius the giant red haired leader of the Germanic Cherusci tribe consolidated his forces and totaly annihilated 3 Roman legions under their commander Varus when they attempted to penetrate the vast forests in Germany.This stopped the expansion of Rome.Rome eventually under the General Germanicus nephew to the new Emperor Tiberius captured and enslaved Arminius' pregnant wife.Germanicus won a few costly minor battles but eventually was driven back across the Rhine. A few short years later Arminius was killed by his own people as his power became to great.This victory conceived by Arminius ,however consolidated the Germanic tribes for the first time and thus becoming a powerful entity.

    Probably Agincourt - a band of weary but iron disciplined Englishmen lead by a legendary King defeats a fresh and more numerous force of overconfident French Knights and changes the face of warfare forever.

    I have mixed feelings on the decline of chivlaric battles that resulted from Henry V's revolutionising of warfare, but this battle is a moving, epic tale.

    On that note, I highly recommend Kenneth Branagh's Henry V movie rendition. Highly.

    Siege of Antioch!

    I made a short story revolving around a Frank crusader captain during the siege of Antioch, named Aldric of Le Puy.
