@Lohoris. You have taken into account your own conditions. Why exactly these? Where is the logic?

@Anixx. Please, reread the question. We are talking on the CLASSIC Greek culture. It is younger than the Etruscian one.

comment Why did religion mixed with politics hold back progress of Europeans but not the Turks?
Yes, the Sultans, for example, even sometimes participated in building the Christian churches. Muslims churches in Europe were not even allowed to be.

Are you OK? All knowledge after the Middle ages had came to Europe from Islam countries. Even the earlier European knowledge. "Lux from the Orient" - haven't you heard?

comment When did the parole of prisoners of war become unacceptable?
Yes, an aristocrate to another aristocrate, so it worked. Alas, it already stopped to work on the other side. The Britain even haven't given the refuge to the Russian emperor or his family in 1917. Maybe because it "guarded" the jewelry of the Russian Crown.

It was not an "official" revolution. But it was a great change for Prussian and enormous change for other Germans. What do you want to back up by evidences?

USA after American Revolution can not be taken as a valid example, because then they had no aristocracy. And the questioned parol system in Europe was not for plebs. As for napoleonic wars, you are mistaken, the parol system was widely known and used. Look The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard of Conan Doyle, for example.

@PeterFlom. please, say exactly, what are you searching for - participation in war? Battles on that territory? The summary time of that? The longest piece? The number of battles?

comment Most fought over piece of land?
But were there so long wars as many hundred years war between England and France, as in the case of Calais? The time was the subject of the question, not times
