Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

He is famous in his own right, mind you. Not many 18th Century military commanders regularly get articles written about them today in the popular press. The main issue was that you all focused on the 17th Century. Which articles? In which publications? Just sticking to your country, try searching f...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

But I understand, of course. British people are very sensitive when it comes to remembering national humiliations. ;-) I should be pursuing a PhD in Iberian studies to even begin comprehending why, as a British person, I should feel national humiliation. On top of that, the event took place before ...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

Who the FUCK is Blas de Lezo y Olavarrieta?? He does not even have a Wikipedia page in English. HOW did you expect us to guess this random, obscure, person? This fails the dart test by about 1,000 miles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blas_de_Lezo Absolute fucking bollocks. JECE needs to explain how...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

Primary sources, of course, wouldn't be the secondary sources that I referred to: Did he die of natural causes? Yes, although secondary sources often disagree You guys should be careful on how you interpret my answer to the 'natural causes' question. It's not a matter of sources being unclear about ...

Re: Ghost Ratings query

It's not just sore losers, though. My GR rating was never great in part because I used to like joining games in progress (back when you had to pay :points: to take over positions). Maybe this was fixed at some point, but I don't know about it if so.

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

Closest fit I can find is Admiral Blas de Lezo, although I didn't see any reference to a debatable cause of death so probably not right. Is that an official guess? The cause of death isn't debatable or controversial, mind you. There is just confusion about it. like there's a debunked idea about how...

Kakarroto! Poor guy! Sorry that you did all that research. I was referring to damo666 and his love affair with real dead males, not battles in 1666.

Think major victories (or catastrophic defeats depending on your perspective).
@JECE - I think this is simply far too obscure. We don't know it.
You should have listened to the number of the beast. :evil: Then you would had even more questions to waste! :wink:
