To make thimb nail pics:

1) Down load the picture you want to make a thumb nail out of to your hard drive (File -> Save as)
2) Go to the following web site: http://makeathumbnail.com/
3) In the box for "Choose the file to upload" browse to the file you just saved, select it. The URL should appear in the box
4) Click on "Make a thimbnail"
5) On the page that appears you will get a URL that contains the thumbnail, copy that URL
6) Back on BR, use the originals URL for the URL tag and then the IMG tag for the Thumbnail
7) Click Submit

And you are done.

Since it is the 100th year of beginning of First World War, I want to read more about it. Any suggestions on good books that give a broad overview of the events and progress of the War? Would be nice if the book(s) had maps of various theaters so that I can understand the events better. I am not looking for books that discuss a single siege/front or even strategies of the belligerents.

Thanks for the reply.

While researching about WW1 on the web, I came across the following titles exclusively on WW1 http://europeanhistory.about.com/od/worldwar1/tp/tpww1.htm

The first title listed looks promising, just what I was looking for The First World War by John Keegan. This seems to be well recd & looks affordable.

Is Ravi Rikhye's "Concise World Armies" still.available for sale at orbat dot com? I tried the purchase link but doesn't seem to be working. Also, is it still being updated (if not, when was the most recent update?)

Thanks.

May I suggest Frank Furedi's "First World War- Still no end in sight"?

It provides a very good overview and how the present world evolved from WWI.


Basically the modernism and liberalism ushered in by the Industrial Revolution faced a crisis of confidence & led to crash and burn of existing world order.

Is there anyway we can report the post and make our reasons public,dont want to do it on the same thread, as it runs the risk of derailing the thread and further cause argument on the same thread, thereby defeating the purpose

The kurdish fighter counting sounded just like hindi. I did not know there were language similarities with kurdish. Is it Persian influence in both hindi and kurdish ? Or sanskrit ?

Sir all those languages are related to Sanskrit. A lot of these discussions have taken place in the "Out of India" thread in the Strat forum - although it will be difficult to locate the answer in the midst of all the noise there.

The language of the Zoroastrians was probably Sanskrit despite the bullshit made up by linguists about "Avestan". My reasons for saying this are too long for this thread and reply. The Zoroastian holy book was the "lost" Bhargava Atharva Veda. sanskrit went west with the Zoroastrians and even Darius' "Behistun inscription" in Iran reads like Sanskrit. The 1800 BC Mitanni texts found in Syria are pure Sanskrit.

Our history has been cooked up by racists - let me point you to a recent article I have written:
https://swarajyamag.com/culture/aryans- ... y-scholars

That said I am sorry to note that young people spend 2 years studying for IAS entrance and end up studying the discredited "Aryan Invasion theory" as essential knowledge of History to pass the IAS exam. This needs to change
