comment Is there any consensus amongst historians or primary sources that oratory was Adolf Hitler's fundamental strength / “gift”?
Not an answer, and obvious propaganda, but interesting nonetheless: Goebbels apparently thought Hitler was a "rhetorical genius" (source: The Führer as a Speaker).

comment Three rings (wreaths?) symbol in XIX century Russia
Nope, before Peter the Great, Russia was called "Muscovy" Ah, then I guess we should start removing references to the 200 year old Tsardom of Russia from history books...

comment Which came first, the shield or the sword?
"The sword is an invention of the bronze age" Highly depends on your definition of sword. If it includes daggers, then it's most definitely a much earlier invention.

comment Is there a definition of history separate from the definition of politics?
I don't think this is a Meta question, perhaps capitalizing History and Politics confused the close voter in thinking that the question is about the Stack Exchange sites, instead of the actual topics.
