comment What was the fertility rate in Ancient Rome and how did this number evolve over time?
Appears to be based on pseudo historical theory and therefore unanswerable.

comment AP World History for Computer Science (Programming) Major?
History provides critical reading thinking speaking and writing skills. In particular the study of history emphasises reading broadly and untrustworthy texts, in comparison to philosophy for example that emphasises deep and narrow reading of internally complex texts.

comment What would be the GDP of the Roman Empire?
There is a series of strong scholarly arguments that this question is unanswerable due to the anachronism of GDP as a theoretical concept.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a blatantly off-topic source request.

comment Did Radio Free Europe say that the Allies would come to the rescue during the Hungarian Revolution?
The work cited is based off RFE archives including full tape archives of what RFE actually broadcast in its Hungarian programming. Archives trump myth. An excellent question would be what role did the myth of RFE offers of support to Hungary play for Hungarians before and after 1989 and for anti-Soviet groups in the west.

comment Why didn't Stalin use force to bring Tito into line?
The planning was to use the fraternal states militaries in echelonment to protect Soviet forces. Hungary 1956 was fairly costly for the Soviet Union, and that was without the Honved being centrally controlled to resist or in general resisting. Yugoslavia would have made Korea look nice, thus the plan to bleed the fraternal states first. Korea, of course, being the other point: that Stalin authorised Korea instead of Yugoslavia.
