comment Why did the musket become the standard infantry combat weapon in European armies around 1700?
@Lohoris: I kind of doubt that's the case. A musket with a bayonet attached to it has roughly the same length and weight as a spear. But thanks for getting me to think about this.

comment Germany colonizing Europe?
@MarkC.Wallace: I think that the question is, was Hitler opposed because his victims were Poland and France, rather than say, "Abysinnia?"

comment What were the advantages of sheepfolds?
@RSConley: You should edit the question to link to the Wikipedia article so people know that you have gotten "that far." My other changes regarded the historical "functionality" of the sheepfold.

comment What prevented the Mongolian Empire from expanding into Europe?
@RISwampYankee: "Divided" is different for "disunited." The follow-on observation was "None of these entities had the power of the whole." But they didn't begin fighting among themselves until Mongke. As for the difference between Ogetai's and Genghis' military leadership, "amateurs think about tactics while professionals think about logistics."
