comment Start of the Civil War?
Welcome to History SE, I believe for this question Wikipedia is detailed enough, on the 1st section they are mentioning various reasons. So it seems a trivia question and should be closed. In case if you can improve your question asking about circumstance which is not mentioned on wikipedia, please edit your question.

comment What was the average height in Classical Greece?
+1 Interesting to see the period of dark ages how average female height dropped significantly, most probably because of poor nutrition and higher stress levels.

comment What was the average height in Classical Greece?
My guess is that since people generally had similar gene pool and also similar living standards - nutrition, stress levels, etc... - so the average height difference between the two eras will be minimal.

So far this seems to be the answer, if nobody brings different records, I will accept this answer in few days. Special thanks for Semaphore.

@Jos not really, wiki is accurate only in topics which knowledge is widely available, general history questions can be answered with wiki, more complex question can be answered various sources, and there are answers which might be inaccurate/not available on wiki simply because only few people know the answer and probably they didn't participate in wiki writing for some reason.

@Semaphore That was something similar to my thought too when I meant "independence", but didn't find any reference, probably it is a good guess.

@Jos Don't be mistaken, first of all, welcome to History SE, and we are looking forward your questions and answers. A question should be something which is hard to answer. If you check out the popup on question vote up it says: "This question shows research efforts; it is useful and clear" You certainly fulfill the second point, but probably fail the first point. If you have some question in depth of the stated subject, please alter your question. Otherwise it looks somewhat trivial to answer as Semaphore spotted out in his comment.

comment What is the origin of the term 'Great Dictator'?
I think you were mistaken by a coincidence. Chaplin clearly referred to Adolf Hitler and modelled him. Stalin was a dictator by definition (see: dictatorship of proletariat), great dictator is a title, but many others used for Stalin.

comment Why were Soviets so extremely effective snipers in WW2?
@TylerDurden I find the page's claim to be weak that is why I asked the question on the first place, and the second is really the point "why is this list full of soviets except the best of them?"

comment Why were Soviets so extremely effective snipers in WW2?
I gave a +1 for the point 2, I also saw on the list numerous siberians, but I didn't connect this fact to the efficiency, it is a good point

Hmm this would be believeable and logical, since the list shows the real master of sniper rifle was the finnish one in the winter war, is there record on this impression? On wiki you linked they don't say so.
