Look, just do it seriously, or bully someone else. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
What happened in that topic stays in that topic. So give it a chance.

@Jalle853

I think you have answered enough to say it's correct. Yes he was the leader of Yugoslavia.
He was from Croatia and his strong charismatic appereance, in combination that he fought for the partizans, made him a strong leader in an ethnic diversed country there. Croatia supported the Nazi's, so after his death, they wanted to split up. Also his strong believes against Stalin. Thanks to the Partizans, the Red Army, didnt march into Yugoslavia like they did in other East-European countries.

You can create the next question mate http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

Nr. 3 Tito was notable for pursuing a foreign policy of neutrality during the Cold War and for establishing close ties with developing countries. Tito's strong belief in self-determination caused early rift with Stalin and consequently, the Eastern Bloc. His public speeches often reiterated that policy of neutrality and cooperation with all countries would be natural as long as these countries did not use their influence to pressure Yugoslavia to take sides. Relations with the United States and Western European nations were generally cordial.

Nr. 4
Tito was buried in a mausoleum in Belgrade, which forms part of a memorial complex in the grounds of the Museum of Yugoslav History (formerly called "Museum 25 May" and "Museum of the Revolution"). The actual mausoleum is called House of Flowers (Ku?a Cve?a) and numerous people visit the place as a shrine to "better times". The museum keeps the gifts Tito received during his presidency. The collection also includes original prints of Los Caprichos by Francisco Goya, and many others.[72] The Government of Serbia has planned to merge it into the Museum of the History of Serbia.[73] At the time of his death, speculation began about whether his successors could continue to hold Yugoslavia together. Ethnic divisions and conflict grew and eventually erupted in a series of Yugoslav wars a decade after his death.
Some 1,000 people gather near a statue of Josip Broz Tito in Sarajevo during a ceremony commemorating the 26th anniversary of his death in 2006.

During his life and especially in the first year after his death, several places were named after Tito. Several of these places have since returned to their original names, such as Podgorica, formerly Titograd (though Podgorica's international airport is still identified by the code TGD), which reverted to its original name in 1992. Streets in Belgrade, the capital, have all reverted back to their original pre-World War II and pre-communist names as well. In 2004, Antun Augustin?i?'s statue of Broz in his birthplace of ***rovec was decapitated in an explosion.[74] It was subsequently repaired. Twice in 2008, protests took place in Zagreb's Marshal Tito Square, organized by a group called Circle for the Square (Krug za Trg), with an aim to force the city government to rename it to its previous name, while a counter-protest by Citizens' Initiative Against Ustašism (Gra?anska inicijativa protiv ustaštva) accused the "Circle for the Square" of historical revisionism and neo-fascism.[75] Croatian president Stjepan Mesi? criticized the demonstration to change the name.[76] In the Croatian coastal city of Opatija the main street (also its longest street) still bears the name of Marshal Tito, as do streets in numerous towns in Serbia, mostly in the country's north.[77] One of the two main streets in Sarajevo is called Marshal Tito Street.

yes, wiki is my friend.

Henri Philippe Benoni Omer Joseph Pétain. known as Philippe Pétain or Marshal Pétain.

Because of his outstanding military leadership in World War I, particularly during the Battle of Verdun, he was viewed as a national hero in France. With the imminent French defeat in June 1940, Pétain was appointed Premier of France by President Lebrun at Bordeaux, and the Cabinet resolved to make peace with Germany. The entire government subsequently moved, briefly, to Clermont-Ferrand, then to the spa town of Vichy in central France. His government voted to transform the discredited French Third Republic into the French State, an authoritarian regime. As the war progressed, the government at Vichy collaborated with the Germans, who in 1942 finally occupied the whole of metropolitan France because of the threat from North Africa. Petain's actions during World War II resulted in what many regard as a show-trial, with conviction and death sentence for treason, which was commuted to life imprisonment by his former protégé Charles de Gaulle. In modern France he is remembered as an ambiguous figure while pétainisme is a derogatory term for certain reactionary policies.

here is the solution.

1. Andreas Hofer.
2. In the war against Napoleon Bonaparte, in the year 1809, when he was the leader of the Tyrolean Rebellion.
3. He was executed by a firing squad on February 20, 1810. And is seen as an hero, especially by the german speaking population of Tyrol/ Austria, because he was the leader of the Rebillion for Tyrol and Austria and fought the french and bavarian occupators.

I think we should put alimit on whatthe sharacters we use i.e. they should be before 1900 or something.

I know i am going to get slaughtered for this but i dont really think of the second and first world wars as proper history it has to be at least 100 years old to impress me TBH.

Haha, thanks.

1) Field Marshal Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington

29 April/1 May 1769 – 14 September 1852

2) Wellesley rose to prominence as a general during the Peninsular campaign of the Napoleonic Wars, and was promoted to the rank of field marshal after leading the allied forces to victory against the French at the Battle of Vitoria in 1813.


But for most of the Peninsular War, where he earned his fame, his troops lacked the numbers for an attack

Following Napoleon's exile in 1814, he served as the ambassador to France and was granted a Dukedom. During the Hundred Days in 1815, he commanded the allied army which, with a Prussian army under Blücher, defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.

The thirty years war ended in 1648, this situation takes place a couple of decennia after that, it has something to do with a war between the strongest nations of that time, indeed haha and the future king of Great-Britain who was not hisself actualy British (when we are talking about that war haha).

Indeed, indeed, in that year, when the war broke out also that persons were lynched.
The war was between The Netherlands who were attacked by France and by Britain and by some German States. The war itself is not widely known but should be. It was the war of giants in that time indeed. The Dutch were victories on the sea where they defeated the French and the British. The French were first victorious on the land and they came far. But they were stalled back by the water lines, famous Dutch defense tactics, and also the French were on the land pushed back far into Franse itself. The German states were defeated thanks to the help of other German states who were allies of the Dutch including the Swedish (who didnt help on land but im not realy sure of that).
The Dutch were able to push the French armies back thanks to the help of the British who walked over to an alliance with the Dutch against France. It had all to do with Catholic and Protestant Kings haha.

The year when The Netherlands were attacked is in Holland known by the name "rampjaar".
In English the good translation is the Year Of Disaster. Quite known why they called it this.
Haha i think you now have enough information to solve the question haha. King Billy has a huge part in it including in the lynching part despite that is not officialy known. The killers were however rewarded by him.

(Haha I'm feeling myself like that dude that helps Desmond with historical questions e.a. in the Animus. King Billy realy proves himself here as a templar hahahahahahahahahaha.)

Pieter Pietersen Heyn was born in Delfshaven (now part of Rotterdam), the son of a sea captain, and he became a sailor while he was still a teenager

Hein is today often called a pirate, though he was a privateer as the Republic was at war with the Habsburgs and this was what would make Hein most famous.

The Battle in the Bay of Matanzas was a naval battle during the Eighty Years' War in which a Dutch squadron was able to defeat and capture a Spanish treasure fleet.

Because he captures the Spanish treasure fleet. The treasure was the company's greatest victory in the Caribbean.

As a result, the money funded the Dutch army for eight months allowing it to capture the fortress 's Hertogenbosch and the shareholders enjoyed a cash dividend of 50% for that year. He returned to the Netherlands in 1629, where he was hailed as a hero.

4. He is traditionally and most likeky to have authored which book?
5. What is the book about?

http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/8199/enchoen27n3200.jpg

Hint: During the 19th and 20th centuries, the book grew in popularity and saw practical use in Western society, and his work has continued to influence both Asian and Western culture and politics.

Historians popularly recount how French emperor Napoleon studied his book and used them to successfully wage war against the rest of Europe. The emperor's disregard for central principles such as attentiveness to temporal conditions is largely credited for his eventual defeat in Russia. Admiral of the Fleet T?g? Heihachir?, who led Japan's forces to victory against Russia in the Russo-Japanese War, was an avid reader of the book.

The book strongly influenced Mao's writings about guerrilla warfare, which further influenced communist insurgencies around the world

It is listed on the Marine Corps Professional Reading Program (formerly known as the Commandant's Reading List).

During the Persian Gulf War in the 1990s, both General Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. and General Colin Powell practiced his principles of deception, speed, and attacking the enemy's weakness.

Hint: He was primarily a military theorist interested in the examination of war. He wrote a careful, systematic, philosophical examination of war in all its aspects, as he saw it and taught it. The result was his principal work, the West's premier work on the philosophy of war.

He integrates politics and social and economic issues as some of the most important factors in deciding the outcomes of a war. It is one of the most important treatises on strategy ever written, and is prescribed at various military academies to this day.

Maybe you can refrase the second question. I know Don Quichotte but i dont think that you are referring
to him.

Maybe it was too tricky hehe. But with all the hints i think a wikipedia search would do it. Heres the explanation:

Magnum Opus is latin and means: "The great work", it is often used to describe ones artist greatest work. Cervantes Don Qoujite is considered to be Cervatnes "Magnum Opus".

The man on horse is of course the main character. Don Quixote.

LQVDQH is a ceasar cipher, solved it is: Insane. Don Quixote was of course insane in the book. Thats what it is about. Him being insane and imagining stuff up.

The picture hint is related to the first hints, Don Quixote believed windmills in a quest in the book to be giants. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilting_at_windmills for more info.

So this should get you to at least know its something about the book. For the question, well the question is a question and a hint. The key word is cute. Or more explained in later hints, as sweet but fake and of spanish origin.

The answer is Dulcinea del Toboso. It is don Quixote's true love, but he is just imagining her. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dulcinea

The meaning of her name is Sweet in spanish. Cervantes played a little wordgame with his Magnum Opus.

Now that was it :P Next one you go slaro. No need for fancy pants ciphers or clues like i do hehe, but i just figured, we are all ac fans so i might as well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
