Anyone Watch "The History Guy" Videos on YouTube?

Recommended Posts

I thought this one might be of interest around here, but he does some interesting little pieces on history of all sorts.

I've watched several.  Usually very interesting and well presented.

The little voice in my head keeps saying, "Watch out, leftist warning", for some reason.  Makes it difficult to really enjoy.  Paranoia?

I haven't really gotten that from any of his videos. Not saying it isn't there, but I haven't noticed.

Perhaps its his similarity to the guy who used to do the "travels with" spots on CBS, Sunday mornings.

I have found the History Guy’s  ideos to be a good way to avoid doing my chores.

 

I will neither confirm nor deny I use them as a way of procrastinating.

Never heard it pronounced Kay Pee. But I never axed a Frenchman.

I noticed he used the more polite Air Force “Flight Cap” nickname for the garrison cap, rather than the more crude  (and unmentionable here) names the Army, Navy, and a Marines use. :lol:

Another fun YouTube series is "History Buffs."

 

A fella named Nick Hodges examines the accuracy and inaccuracies of history-based movies.  After enduring a one-minute animated introduction, the rest of each presentation is pretty interesting.  I just watched the "Zulu" episode....
