Total War History: Triplex Acies (Roman Military Tactics)
 
14:11
The Triplex Acies was the triple battle line employed by roman legions. This formation was the key to Roman military success! It allowed legions to traverse rough terrain while maintaining cohesion and provided a system for reinforcement in battle that provided incredible staying power. I hope you enjoyed this historical video about the Roman military machine! Make sure to check out my series on the First Punic War: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOk6ppoQrkw There are many competing theories as to how the Roman forces may have deployed. It's extremely speculative as we have no definitive description from history. I strongly recommend checking out this site which goes into huge depth on this topic: http://garyb.0catch.com/site_map.html Sources: "The Fall of Carthage" by Adrian Goldsworthy "In the Name of Rome" by Adrian Goldsworthy "The Rise of Rome" by Anthony Everitt The gameplay comes from Total War: Rome 2 "Please note this is an unofficial video and is not endorsed by SEGA or the Creative Assembly in any way.

The Most Advanced Special Forces and Commandos of the Ancient Armies (Full Documentary). This is a great Documentary, as are the rest of the documentaries on this channel. Please browse and subscribe to see the content of the best documentaries on Youtube and the Internet. "Documentary," says the dictionary. "Noun. Based on or recreating an actual event, era, life story, that purports to be factually accurate and contains no fictional elements." This is useful, but a trifle over-cautious. Why shouldn't non-fiction contain elements of fiction? And why should something only "purport" to be factually accurate? It reeks of the old charges that docs are unreliable because they are filmed. When you describe anything, it is altered. The act of seeing modifies what is seen. Most people who watch docs understand this.No body of theory exists to legitimise docs and I'm grateful for this. They have come to subsist at a crossroads of contemporary culture, somewhere between journalism, film narrative and television entertainment. They appear to thrive on contradictions, between the stubborn reality they purport to capture and their necessarily limited means, between the impositions of storytelling and the desire to interpret or analyse. They aren't fictional, ever, but they can seem in their attractiveness more real than reality.

Roman Military Technology and Tactics
 
11:03
Subscribe to Naked Science – http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare... 2000 years ago the Roman army is the best equipped army in the world. While architects have mastered the art of manipulating stone and concrete, military engineers have fashioned metal and wood to create devastating weapons of war. The Roman foot soldiers main weapon is a fearsome sword called the Gladius, a double edged blade with a sharp point used for stabbing and thrusting, rather than slashing. When not fighting at close quarters, their spear, called a pilum, could kill from a distance with lethal accuracy. Protecting soldiers from injury is just as important as arming them for attack. Early Roman soldiers wear chainmail, but armourers come up with a far superior form of protection. Articulated plate armour called lorica segmentata, made from overlapping iron plates joined together by leather straps, as flexible as chainmail, but one third lighter. If the romans weaponry has a modern feel, then so does the tactics they use. The Roman legions know exactly how to fight heavily armed foes. They use the testudo, Latin for tortoise. Legionaries bunch together and lock their shields in formation to create a protective screen, a formation as effective in attack, as it is in defence. Few examples of Roman artillery survive, but they left detailed clues as to how to recreate them. The Ermine Street Guard Roman Reenactment Society is dedicated to research into the Roman Army and the reconstruction of Roman armour and equipment. The scorpion fires iron tipped bolts, used in the first stages of attack and during sieges. It fires arrows at incredible speeds, pierces armour, and kills instantly, a bit like a giant crossbow. Although an effective anti-personnel weapon, the scorpion is of little use when attacking a building. For that the Romans need something with a bit more punch, the onager and the ballista. These pieces of artillery fire large stones at the enemy. During sieges they propel projectiles so high into the air that they can break down enemy walls. The whizzing noise of the stones strikes terror into Rome’s enemies. To increase the fear factor they’re painted black so harder to see. The ballista works like the scorpion, but is bigger and more powerful. It can fire a 60 pound stone or a 3 foot bolt around 15,000 feet allowing the soldiers to stand well away from enemy archers. The speed of the missile is phenomenal hitting its target at about 115 mph, anyone sustaining a direct hit would be killed instantly. The onager uses a different principle, it catapults basketball sized stones nearly 100 feet using a single arm and sling. The vertical arm is powered by a large horizontal skein of rope, coiled and twisted to create a rotational force, the skein acts like a spring storing energy to be released on firing. The combination of technology and tactics makes the Roman army the premier fighting force in Europe for 500 years and influences military tactics for the next 1,500.

Following the unification of the states, a much more organised army was established. Although the states were united, emperors still wanted to claim more territory and an army was needed to conquer neighbouring peoples and claim their land. For many centuries, China was under threat of attack from Mongol tribes to the north and much of its military was involved with defending Chinese lands.

Most AMAZING Facts About The Roman Military!
 
10:56
Check out the most amazing facts about the roman military! From forming legions to the roman empire, here is why the roman army was so shockingly powerful throughout history! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "CRAZIEST Things Ancient Romans Did!" video here: https://youtu.be/uMqagO3UMbA 10. Decimation The Roman military was built upon discipline, but for those who failed or stepped out of line, the consequences were dire! Decimation was the punishment of choice for large groups of soldiers who has disobeyed orders, such as mutiny or desertion. 9. Weapons The weapons the Romans had at their disposal were a large part of the reason the military was so effective. Each legionary would be equipped with a sword, a dagger, and two javelins. 8. The “Immunes” One of the reasons the Roman military was so effective was that each legion was pretty much self-sufficient. The people who held it all together were the “immunes”, who were a group of highly trained specialists that were responsible for maintaining the logistical and medical needs of the soldiers. 7. The Corvus The Romans didn’t design their own ships, but stole the designs from their enemies. Much easier right?? 6. The First Battle was a Defeat The Romans are legendary for their military prowess, but it could have all been very different. In fact, their first battle was a comprehensive defeat, but it would give them the motivation to learn quickly and become the immense force that they are still remembered for. 5. The Fetials The Fetials were a group of 20 Roman priests who were involved in international relations. They were integral to the signing of treaties and declarations of war. 4. Tactics The Romans revolutionised military tactics. The main foundation was the idea that you could fight far more effectively if order was maintained between the troops. 3. The Praetorian Guard The Praetorian Guard date back to the Roman Republic, and were the Secret Service of their day. They were the most prestigious unit of the Roman military, would fight in campaigns, help put down an uprising, and do anything else the emperor required of them. 2. Battle of Cannae The Battle of Cannae took place in 216 BC, and was fought between the Romans and the Carthaginians, who were led by Hannibal. It is thought to have been the bloodiest day of battle ever, with more than 40,000 Romans losing their lives, and causing a great embarrassment for the empire. It was one of their greatest losses. 1. Wealthy Class System Originally to be a part of the Roman army you had to be a Roman citizen. While the roots of this system were based on tribal ranks, the ruler Tullius decided to, instead, divide the army based on the property that the soldiers owned.

War History Of Ancient India : WAR ELEPHANT
 
04:16
A war elephant was an elephant trained and guided by humans for combat. Their main use was to charge the enemy, breaking their ranks and instilling terror. Elephantry are military units with elephant-mounted troops. They were first employed in India, the practice spreading out across south-east Asia and westwards into the Mediterranean. In the Mediterranean, improved tactics reduced the value of the elephant in battle, while their availability in the wild also decreased. In the east, where supplies of animals were greater and the terrain ideal, it was the advent of the cannon that finally concluded the use of the combat elephant at the end of the 19th century, thereafter restricting their use to engineering and labour roles. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "20 AMAZING Photographs of Nature Photographers With Their Animal Friends." ➨ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpnwR1_htgg -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Why were the Mongols so effective?
 
20:56
„The Mongol Empire of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries was the largest continuous land empire that has so far existed. At its greatest extent it stretched from Korea to Hungary, including, except for India and the south-east of the continent, most of Asia, as well as a good deal of eastern Europe. As a whole it lasted for well over a century, and parts of it survived for very much longer.” (Morgan, David: The Mongols. Second Edition. Blackwell Publishing: Malden, MA, USA, 2007, p. 5) Hence, the question is how and why were they so effective in both military and political affairs?

Chinese Strategy Against the Northern Steppe, c.600BC-90AD
 
24:18
Lots of people getting down to business to defeat the Huns... but not Mulan, whose legend comes from c.400-600AD. Discussions on Chinese strategy tend to be heavy on Sun Tzu and light on actual history. This video aims to change that by introducing viewers to a formative period in Chinese strategymaking - the initial phase of China's long relationship with steppe nomads, culminating in the 300-year long contest between Han China and the Xiongnu Empire. Hopefully, over the course of the video several 'tropes' of Chinese strategy will be debunked, like: 1) perennial Chinese defense vs. nomads, 2) marriage alliances being a form of appeasement, and 3) that military might alone was what brought down the Xiongnu. Chinese names are given in Modern Chinese/Mandarin pinyin. Forgive the Mandarin pronunciation. No, Xiongnu are not 'Huns'. All errors are my own.

Top 10 Most FEARED Army in history!
 
11:28
Top 10 Most FEARED Army in history! Some people say that armies are one of the most important factors in assessing the relative power of a nation and, when researching armies from different time periods you quickly realize that there are many different factors that make armies deadly. It’s not just about how big the army was or the exact number of people it killed; it’s also about the tactics used and the army’s impact on the enemy group. This is our list of the most feared armies in the world. Stay tuned to number one to find out who is considered the deadliest army today! Russia...Mongolia...Sparta...Who else?? This facts list is brought to you by Zero2Hero! Don't forget to subscribe here! https://goo.gl/NXuChu If you like the paranormal...check out 10 of the CREEPIEST ghost stories, we've ever heard!! https://youtu.be/XjhASYcHKs0 Number 10: The Spartans As one of the most feared armies of the Ancient Greek world, at the height of Sparta’s dominance, it was believed that one Spartan warrior was equivalent to seven warriors from any other state. At this time in Spartan history, the military took center stage of Spartan life, and it is said that men were bred specifically for war. The boys would remain with their mothers until they were seven years old and then they would be taken to the equivalent of modern day army boot camps. Plutarch, a Greek writer, wrote that the Spartan warriors ‘were the only men in the world with whom war brought a respite in the training of war’ – which gives you an idea of how much they trained. Sparta won many battles in numerous wars, like the Messenian Wars, the wars with Argos, The Persian Wars, The Corinthian War and the Cleomenean War; however they did ultimately lose in the Corinthian War, the Cleomenean War and others. Nevertheless, with an army of warriors who trained from such a young age, and with a reputation so well-known in the ancient world, they deserve a place on this list. Number 9: The Army of Alexander the Great Alexander III of Macedon, later known as Alexander the Great, used his deadly army, which he inherited from his father, to create an empire that reached from Gibraltar to the Punjab…which was most of his known world at the time. Many have attributed much of Alexander’s success to his military leadership, and let’s face it, no matter how good an army is, it needs a good leader to be a successful. Alexander is considered by some to be one of the greatest military leaders in history. This is how most western literature portrays him, but in the eyes of his Persian victims he was both feared for the destruction he caused and respected for the apparent regret he later felt for the destruction his invasion had caused. For its time, Alexander’s army was a formidable force and one you would not have wanted to fight against. Number 8: The Ancient Roman Army Over many centuries, the Roman army’s tactics, size, formation and fighting style changed and developed alongside changes in cultural traditional, political order and the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. As Rome’s leaders sought to expand their territory in every direction, various Roman armies invaded as far north as Scotland, as far east as the Euphrates river, and as far south as the Saharan Desert in North Africa. Romans armies have boasted some of the greatest military minds in history, such as Julius Caesar and Scipio Africanus, the latter of which led a deadly army to conquer Spain and defeat Hannibal. All battles are crazy, but some of the battles fought by Roman armies resulted in deadly crimes, like when, after a two-year siege, the Romans finally defeated Carthage in the Third Punic War. Upon defeating their enemies, they destroyed the city, slaughtered or enslaved the inhabitants and prohibited any surviving Carthaginians from settling the land in the future. Across the Roman world, before and during the Empire period, numerous Roman armies fought deadly battles using excellent tactics and military weapons that resulted in the formidable reputation the armies achieved. Number 7: Mongol Army. The Mongol Army, under the great medieval military leader Genghis Khan, is a good example of how size isn’t always the most important factor in creating a deadly army. People debate the exact size of Khan’s army at stages during his campaigns, but it’s believed the core of his army consisted of only around 23,000 horseman, known for their excellent riding and fighting abilities. He also hired mercenaries and had other soldiers as well, but on the whole, his army wasn’t as large as some of the ones they defeated. At the time of his passing, though, the army numbered over 100,000 men. With his deadly army of well disciplined, expert, fighters he sent invasions in every direction. Those unfortunate to be on the wrong side of the army often faced horrifying atrocities, atrocities that some people have even compared to genocides. So not an army you’d want riding towards you!

The Battle of Cannae 216 BC
 
09:56
The Battle of Cannae was a major battle of the Second Punic War, taking place on August 2, 216 BC near the town of Cannae in Apulia in southeast Italy. The army of Carthage under Hannibal decisively defeated a numerically superior army of the Roman Republic under command of the consuls Lucius Aemilius Paullus and Gaius Terentius Varro. It is regarded as one of the greatest tactical feats in military history to this day and, in terms of the numbers killed, the second greatest defeat of Rome (second only to the Battle of Arausio, in 105 BC).

Spartans VS Roman Legionnaire - Training and Equipment - History That Changed the World - 002
 
07:26
The Roman legionary was a professional heavy infantryman of the Roman army after the Marian reforms. Legionaries had to be Roman citizens under the age of 45. They enlisted in a legion for twenty-five years of service, a change from the early practice of enlisting only for a campaign. The last five years were on veteran lighter duties. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legionary The Spartan army stood at the centre of the Spartan state, whose citizens were trained in the discipline and honor of the warrior society.[1] Subject to military drill from early manhood, the Spartans were one of the most feared military forces in the Greek world. At the height of Sparta's power – between the 6th and 4th centuries BC – it was commonly accepted that "one Spartan was worth several men of any other state."[1] According to Thucydides, the famous moment of Spartan surrender on the island of Sphacteria, off Pylos, was highly unexpected. He said that "it was the common perception at the time that Spartans would never lay down their weapons for any reason, be it hunger, or danger." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spartan_army Second Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxEL7kT8uA9Yn_phlqq694Q Twitter https://twitter.com/NerdFactorPaul Tekoa's Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrpDj9Q_mVCvkzXf9y-Peyw Tekoa's Twitter https://twitter.com/TekoaYT

The Battle of Cannae
 
07:14
One of the most accurate ancient battle depictions in modern media. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Cannae Swearing vengeance against Rome for the humiliation they inflicted on Carthage, Hannibal Barca in his Iberian kingdom set out on an audacious plan to strike at Rome's heart in Italy, by marching an army of between 60,000 and 80,000 men overland through southern Gaul and over the Alps. Somewhere over 40,000 arrived in Italy with Hannibal some months later. With inferior numbers, Hannibal wielded a tactical and strategic genius which allowed him to twice outsmart and defeat the Roman armies at Lake Trasimene and the River Trebia. Appointed Dictator by the Senate of Rome, Quintus Fabius Maximus was not about to let Hannibal demolish and humiliate the Romans again. He began a policy of "delaying", a war of attrition which would starve Hannibal's army out of Italy. This policy lasted as long as Fabius Maximus's Dictatorship. After it expired, the new Consuls for the year, Gaius Terentius Varro and Lucius Aemilius Paullus, raised an army of some 16 legions numbering between 80,000 and 90,000 men, Roman and Italian, to meet Hannibal Barca and defeat him once and for all. The ensuing day's battle would be the turning point for the Second Punic War, and the course of Roman and Carthaginian history. Hannibal's tactics would be studied and admired by Rome for hundreds of years to come. The strategy, as it unfolded, began by presenting Rome with an unavoidably appealing target---the Carthaginian infantry line, slightly ragged, shaped like a crescent. The cavalry met first, with Hannibal's Iberian, Gallic, and Carthaginian cavalry quickly defeating the Romans, and chasing them off the field completely. The Roman army pressed into the infantry, which gave ground steadily, flexing the crescent shape around and creating a sort of crater for the front lines of the Romans to crash into. Much of the center would be stuck in place by the sheer mass of the army moving forward. On cue, the elite African and Libyan troops of Hannibal's army extended the lines and attacked the Roman flanks, leaving one line of escape. This was sealed shut by the returning heavy cavalry. While virtually every Carthaginian line could fight the Romans, only the Roman lines on the extreme flanks, rear, and front could fight while the rest were crushed in the center, left to panic that they were surrounded, and undoubtedly losing the battle. Estimates put the Roman casualties at 50,000, with Consul Paullus dead, and over eighty Roman Senators killed. Carthage lost 6,000 dead and 10,000 wounded. Despite the stunning victory, Hannibal Barca did not press on Rome itself. Theories range, claiming Hannibal could have taken Rome by force, while others put forth that because Barca had no siege equipment, he would have bled his army out on the walls, as the Romans had left a garrison in the city, and would scrape together all the troops they could to defend the city to the death. Hannibal was ultimately defeated by Publius Cornelius Scipio at the Battle of Zama, after spending over a decade in Italy, victim of returning Dictator Quintus Fabius Maximus's "delaying" tactics, an entire Roman army keeping Hannibal pinned in Italy while Scipio led another army to ultimately destroy Hannibal's "kingdom" in Iberia. Hannibal risked the journey to Carthage with his ragged army when Carthage itself was threatened by Rome.

Egyptian Weapons, Armour, Warfare And Strategy
 
11:48
Ancient Egypt was a civilization of ancient Northeastern Africa, concentrated along the lower reaches of the Nile River in what is now the modern country of Egypt. The history of ancient Egypt occurred in a series of stable kingdoms, separated by periods of relative instability known as Intermediate Periods,. Egypt reached the pinnacle of its power in the New Kingdom, during the Ramesside period, where it rivalled the Hittite Empire, Assyrian Empire and Mitanni Empire, after which it entered a period of slow decline. The success of ancient Egyptian civilization came partly from its ability to adapt to the conditions of the Nile River valley for agriculture. The predictable flooding and controlled irrigation of the fertile valley produced surplus crops, which supported a more dense population, and social development and culture. With resources to spare, the administration sponsored mineral exploitation of the valley and surrounding desert regions, the early development of an independent writing system, the organization of collective construction and agricultural projects, trade with surrounding regions, and a military intended to defeat foreign enemies and assert Egyptian dominance. Motivating and organizing these activities was a bureaucracy of elite scribes, religious leaders, and administrators under the control of a pharaoh, who ensured the cooperation and unity of the Egyptian people in the context of an elaborate system of religious beliefs. A new-found respect for antiquities and excavations in the early modern period by Europeans and Egyptians led to the scientific investigation of Egyptian civilization and a greater appreciation of its cultural legacy.
