    Germania

    Recently I bought “Germania” by Simon Winder, it’s a book solely about Germany, at school I was taught English history, a smattering of world history.
    So much of European history wasn’t taught, as you know Britain is an island race, we only looked at the world locally, occasionally making war with France....Spain, Holland.
    This book covers everything I wish I’d been taught, it’s written by an Englishman with wit, I thought I’d pass this on.

    Seems to me like England is as normal as most places on earth(with the exception of the Muslim invasion, and the government's failure to eliminate illegal immigration).

    It seems I have a special Haplogroup. A genealogist I am engaging will hopefully trace where it comes from, relax dear reader I am 100% European. Males have 2 Haplogroup, maternal, and Paternal, women only have a maternal Haplogroup.
    Male Haplogroup go way back in time to the first father from when the Sperm mutated from another Haplogroup mine mutated 41,000 years ago, it’s ancient. Probably from the agricultural eastern population that swept into Europe and gave it agriculture and farming.
    RIP Wes.

    I read German history books in Germany. VERY different from the German/European history I was taught in the USA.

    Exactly!
    the book goes into great deal of the impact the reformation had on Central Europe, it’s shaped Germany, the Catholic’s in one part, and the Protestants in another, the wars, the persecution, the shaping of the history...it’s fascinating.

    The 30 years war....1/3 the population of Europe wiped out thru war. England sitting it out, not getting involved was the best part of James Ist reign.

    If you really want an outstanding tome on the history of Germany AND England, I highly recommend Winston Churchill's A History of the English-Speaking Peoples - Wikipedia, a 4 volume work as complete as any I've ever seen anywhere.

    I'm a history buff.
    Saint Junipero Serra's Legacy - the untold stories of California
    A Soldier's Stories - Reports of news and interesting stuff

    I proudly voted for President Trump!
