comment How far could an English war bow shoot?
@mgb A hail of arrows, forcing people to put their visors down, lift their heavy shields up, walk slower, lose morale, leave horses behind etc etc would have been good force multiplication.

Bizarre that this question and this pop up at the same time. Is immigration been in the news or something?

comment Were there any battles in Continental Europe that were decided by “peasants with pitchforks?”
So when did very badly equipped leviess prove decisive? I know when peasants on their own defeated a military force, the Knights Hospitallers, but I can't find the numbers: Siege of Freiburg im Breisgau.

comment Why did Alexander found or rename a number of places after himself?
I'm not sure we can probe very far into the inner working of his mind. But I don't think it's a stretch to say, considering all he achieved, that he was a bit mad.

comment What advantages have motorized infantry enjoyed over standard infantry besides speed?
Just want to head of some confusion. Motorised Infantry have access to vehicles for mobility between fights. Army trucks have traditionally filled this role but more armoured vehicles like Bushmaster Protected Mobility Vehicle are used nowadays for better protection (with ieds in mind). Mechanized infantry are the guys with the APCs and IFVs, that use the vehicles aggressively and maintain mobility sometimes under fire.

comment Number of bullets used in WW2
this could do the trick for soviet production (p104). But figures need interpreting, and perhaps more data is needed, to get to this back to the question.

comment Number of bullets used in WW2
If you ignore Soviet production is about the biggest IF I've ever seen. They had far and away the biggest war and maintained a significant GDP throughout. Great answer, potentially terrible guess.
