How much do you know about history?

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Silvester, Nov 3, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A history test.

    You scored 25 out of 30. This is a truly impressive score. You should be extremely proud. You have a tremendous knowledge of world history from 1501-1800. You are a motivated and intelligent person and you will go very far in life. Okay, this is where we stop giving you all the credit in the world (this is only world history, after all...) Good job, though!

    29 out of 30 here. Now, which one did I get wrong?

    Off to do some research....
     
  4. 25 out of 30. Always unsure about the Incas Aztecs
     
  5. 26

    But then again my specialist historical subjects are The RAF in the pre-war expansion period to Operation Jubilee and the Air War in the Western Desert and Greece. :(
     
  6. 29 out of 30. Wish I knew which one I got wrong?

    BTW question on Lord Protector: Cromwell died 1951, from then until 1660 the country was ruled by "The Generals" the head of state was Richard Cromwell (Olly's son) who, to avoid a 4th Civil War, invited the exiled Charles II to return to England.
     
  7. 25-30-disgraced.
     
  8. 28/30 - I should have phoned a friend - but I don't have any because I am too busy reading history books
     
  9. 22 out 0f 30, a typical west country lad, strong in the arm and thick in the head!!
     
  10. World History, 1501-1800 Quiz!

    You scored 28 out of 30. This is a truly impressive score. You should be extremely proud. You have a tremendous knowledge of world history from 1501-1800. You are a motivated and intelligent person and you will go very far in life.

    Probably the Ming T'ang
    and the Inca Aztec
    wrong
     
  11. Long lived bugger wasn't he!

    26 out of 30 for me. Same problems with the Incas et al
     
  12. 23 out of 30, not bad for a former grunt!
     
  13. 27; too many spam questions m'lud.
     
  14. You scored 21 out of 30. Great Job! This is a very respectable score. Not many people score this highly. Very impressive. You should do well in life as you have a mix of intelligence, common sense, and knowledge of world history from 1501 to 1800....Still, you are not a master of world history, but, on the bright side, at least you're not a dork

    Ok i suppose, but i tend to specialise on wars from the 1900's
