    For me as a Swede, either Narva, Fraustadt or the march across the belts, the first two are spectacular because we defeated the enemies against the odds really, but it didn't have a decisive outcome.

    The march across the belts resulted in that we took Scania from Denmark, and became the indisputably strongest power in Scandinavia and maybe also northern Europe.

    Teutoberger Wald in 9 AD Arrminius/Hermann/Ermanoz led a unified force of Germanic Tribes against an invading Roman force and slaughtered them in an ambush. This battle effectively established the identity of the German people as excellent warriors and fierce resisters to any outside influence in the minds of the classical world. In many ways this battle could be thought of as the foundation of all Germanic civilization.

    Although, many historians will debate who actually one this war, I beleve that the Cimbrian War(113-101B.C) was one of the most important wars in Germanic history, as the Proto-Germanic tribes, of the Combri & the Teutons had establishe themselves as a major threat to the Roman Empire, during this conflict. These battles would ultimately lead to the future establishments of Germania & many subsequent German States.

    One of the battles near the end of this war, Battle of Arausio(105 B.C.), would be a defining moment in forcing the Roman Empire into reconsidering both it's military strategies and it's territorial claims.

    Leipzig 1812

    The Voelkerschlacht of Leipzig in 1812. The largest classical battle in history (meaning 2 sides march up to a field of battle and have only till dusk to decide the victor) with well over half a million participants on either side. And the influence it had over the development of Germany can also hardly be understated.

    Anglo-Aro War

    The Anglo-Aro War (1901–1902) was a conflict between the Aro Confederacy in present day Eastern Nigeria, and the British Empire. The war began after increasing tension between Aro leaders and British colonialists after years of failed negotiations.Contents [hide]

    2 Aro Opposition
    3 Aro Expedition
    4 The result of the war
    5 Major battles
    6 References
    7 External links

    [edit]
    Cause of the war

    The Aro Confederacy, whose powers extended across Eastern Nigeria and beyond was challenged in the last decades of the 19th century by increasing British penetration of the hinterland. The Aro people and their allies resisted the penetration which threatened their culture, influence, and sovereignty.

    Reasons advanced by the United Kingdom included:
    "To abolish slave trade which is secretly carried on throughout the entire territories belonging to, and dominated by the Aros. To abolish the fetish of the Aros known as Longjuju, which they by superstition and fraud causes many evils among the tribes generally, and to all the outlying tribes of the entire protectorate, who continually appeal to it. Finally, to establish throughout the territories a labour market to take the place of slavery." (quote by Sir Ralph Moore, the high Commissioner of Nigerian Coast Protectorate).[1]
    [edit]
    Aro Opposition

    The Aros knew that British penetration would destroy their economic dominance of the hinterland. They also opposed their religion, Christianity, which threatened their religious influence through their oracle Ibini Ukpabi. The Aro led raids and invasions on communities were conducted in order to undermine British penetration since the 1890s. While the British prepared for the invasion of Arochukwu in November 1901, the Aro launched their last major offensive before the Aro Expedition by British forces. Aro forces led by Okoro Toti sacked Obegu (a British ally) which resulted in 400 people dying. This attack quickened British preparation for their offensive.
    [edit]
    Aro Expedition

    Sir Ralph Moore and the Royal Niger Company, had planned the attack on the Aros and the Ibini Ukpabi oracle since September 1899 but due to lack of necessary manpower, was delayed until November 1901. On November 28, Lt. Col. H. F. Montanaro led 87 officers, 1,550 soldiers and 2,100 carriers in four axes of advance to Arochukwu from Oguta, Akwete, Unwuna and Itu on a counter-insurgency campaign. As expected, Aro forces resisted all axes strongly, although they lacked modern weapons. However, Arochukwu was captured on December 28 after four days of fierce battles in and around the city. As a result the Ibini Ukpabi shrine was allegedly blown up. Battles between British and Aro forces continued until spring 1902 when Aro forces were defeated in the last major battle at Bende. The Aro Expedition ended three weeks later.
    [edit]
    The result of the war

    Some of the Aro leaders like Okoro Toti, were arrested, tried by tribunals, and hanged. The Aro Confederacy was destroyed and Eze Kanu Okoro (king of Arochukwu), went into hiding but was later arrested. Although Aro dominance crumbled in March 1902, many Aros took part in later resistances against the British in the region such as in Afikpo (1902–1903), Ezza (1905), and other areas where the Aro had a particularly significant presence. The defeat of the Aro did help the British in their imperial agenda of conquest of the interior but serious opposition to British penetration in Igboland, however, clearly did not end with the Anglo-Aro War. In the years that followed, the British had to deal with many other conflicts and wars in various parts of Igboland such as the Nri Conflict (1905–1911), Ekumeku War (1883–1914), Igbo Women's War (1929) and etc.

    Battle of Stanford Bridge

    The Battle of Stanford Bridge is one of my favorite battles. There were 3 huge battles in a space of a month or so at this critical time in British history. Fulford Gate which allowed Harald Hardraada control of York. Stanford Bridge which defeated and ended Hardraada but weakened Harold enough where he was defeated and ultimately killed at Hastings. These quick series of events were like a real life chess game that changed the course of Britain forever and ended 7 centuries of Anglo Saxon Germanic life in Britain. No wonder there were not enough Saxons left to put up a fight against Norman rule. The combination of these 3 battles culled the fighting men of Britain to an absolute minimum. That and alot migrated out of Britain to Miklagard and beyond. There was no one left. It's is a shame that the two Har@lds didn't see eye to eye combine forces and take out William the Bastard. The two Har@lds were both Vikings anyway. Perhaps that is exactly why things played out as they did. All or nothing.
    I would have like to have seen that fabled lone Viking warrior\berserker holding off the Harold's forces at the bridge. He closed the door on the viking age.

    Certainly the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest. It may not have stopped the Roman Empire from it's eventual continued invasions of Germania, but it did for the first time give them reason to pause and rethink.
