    This episode of Ten Minute History (like a documentary, only shorter) covers the rise of Calvinism in the Spanish Seventeen Provinces and the subsequent outbreak of the Dutch Revolt/Eighty Years’ War. William the Silent led the United Provinces’ (and later Dutch Republic’s) bid for independence and he encountered many issues, notably the Duke of Alba and Parma as well as some hiccups in picking a monarch. All of the turmoil forced the Dutch to innovate in matters of commerce and trade whilst having to decide the religious policy of their new state. The Dutch (after losing some territory) would win their independence in 1609 but the Spanish wouldn’t accept this until 1648.

    Recommended books: A Concise History of the Netherlands by James C. Kennedy. - A Very good book which goes into great detail about the events of the war and the importance of religious and commercial reform. Very good book.

    This episode of Ten Minute History (like a documentary, only shorter) covers the decline and fall of the Western Roman Empire. It deals with the division of the empire by Theodosius I and the rule of his successors Honorius and Arcadius. Honorius’ reign saw Britannia leave the empire and the first sack of Rome in about 800 years. The borders of the empire continued to weaken under his successors in the west as the East held on in the face of barbarian groups like the Huns or the Vandals. In the end, the Western Roman Empire would disappear in 476 ushering in a new age of smaller kingdoms in Europe.

    Recommended books:

    Chris Wickham - The Inheritance of Rome. Phenomenal book which covers the decline of the Roman Empire in the west (and also the East) and details what happened in the aftermath of its fall.

    Peter Brown - The World of Late Antiquity. One of the classics surrounding the period. Be aware that it is starting to show its age but frankly there aren’t loads of gr…

    This episode covers the rule of the James I and the Union of the Crowns which saw both England and Scotland ruled by the same monarch. It covers James’ early rule which saw the Gunpowder Plot and the attempts to create a religious consensus in England. James managed to keep England out of war but after his death in 1625 his son, Charles I saw to war with Spain and intervention in the Thirty Years’ War. Charles was an abrasive king and his heavy handed rule and corruption led to opposition which culminated in the Bishops’ Wars and set the stage for the English Civil War.

    Recommended Books:

    John Morrill - Stuart Britain: A Very Short Introduction. Very good introductory book and extremely cheap too, good for people new to the period. Much better at covering social and economic trends than the political and religious stuff but still very good.

    Barry Coward and Peter Gaunt - The Stuart Age: England 1603-1714. Much more detailed (and expensive) and an extremely good work. B…

    This episode of Ten Minute History (like a documentary, only shorter) covers the outbreak of the Bohemian Revolt which was what would eventually spiral out of control into the Thirty Years’ War. The revolt was crushed fairly quickly but sparked intervention by Denmark, who didn’t do too well, and later Sweden who did very well. Both of these were aided by France who decided to get directly involved in 1635. By 1648 the Holy Roman Empire lay in ruins, with Austria and Spain struggling to pay for the war and rebuild the Habsburg Empire. This war saw the rise of Sweden and France but most importantly saw the foundations of modern diplomacy built.

    Recommended books:

    Mark Greengrass - Christendom Destroyed: Europe 1517-1648. Does a great job of outlying the theological currents in Europe at the time and how all of the religious changes led to the Thirty Years’ War.

    Peter H. Wilson - Europe’s Tragedy: A New History of the Thirty Years’ War. The go-to text for the war; incred…

    This episode of Ten Minute History covers the late reign of Charles I and his problems with the Bishops’ War and the conflict with parliament. It wasn’t long before Charles’ duplicity and method of rule saw the outbreak of war between Parliament and the king’s forces. The civil wars spanned about a decade and eventually saw the execution of Charles I and the ascendancy of Oliver Cromwell as the Lord Protector of the English Commonwealth (a republic). His rule saw the conquest of Ireland and war with Spain and the Dutch Republic and after Cromwell’s death in 1658, it wasn’t long before Charles’s son, Charles II, was restored to the throne.

    Recommended reading: Barry Coward and Peter Gaunt - The Stuart Age: England 1603-1714. Fantastic and very detailed work which I’d recommend for undergrads but a bit dense for those simply interested in the period.

    John Miller - Early Modern Britain: 1450-1750. A phenomenal bo…

    This episode of Ten Minute History (like a documentary, only shorter) covers the USSR after the death of Stalin. It covers its peak under Khrushchev during the Cold War and the Space Race and his attempted reforms before his ousting after the Cuban Missile Crisis. His replacement, Brezhnev, attempted to undo these reforms but spurned the Era of Stagnation which saw the Soviet economy stall. Gorbachev took over and attempted many sweeping reforms which went awry which culminated in the sudden breakup of the USSR and the establishment of the Russian Federation under Boris Yeltsin.

    Recommended Reading:

    Tony Judt - Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945. Probably the go-to work on the Cold War in Europe. Particularly good for the Warsaw Pact. Highly Recommended.

    Stephen Lovell - Soviet Union: A Very Short Introduction. A great overview of the entire USSR and its history. Recommended for any beginner to the peri…

  7. Ten Minute History - The Fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Birth of the Balkans (Short Documentary)

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/Tenminhistory Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4973164

    This episode of Ten Minute History (like a documentary, only shorter) covers the decline and fall of the Ottoman Empire from the turn of the nineteenth century to its end in 1923. The first half covers the empire’s struggles up until the Crimean War and the second sees the empire catastrophic fall including the Balkan Wars and of course the First World War.

    Ten Minute History is a series of short, ten minute animated narrative documentaries that are designed as revision refreshers or simple introductions to a topic. Please note that these are not meant to be comprehensive and there’s a lot of stuff I couldn’t fit into the episodes that I would have liked to. Thank you for watching, though, it’s always appreciated.

    Recommended books:

    Douglas A Howard - A History of the Ottoman Empire (2017) - Genuinely a phenomenal introduction which covers the entire empire. There are a few things he tends to gloss over, most notably Balkan independence movements.

    Caroline Finkel - Osman’s Dream: A History of the Ottoman Empire 1300-1923 (2006). Another great overview book, more detailed than the above but harder to get into, is particularly good at covering the Sultans and their min…

  8. Ten Minute English and British History #09 - The Normans and the Anarchy

    Twitter: https://twitter.com/Tenminhistory Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4973164

    This episode covers the aftermath of William the Conqueror’s death and what his sons got up to. The relationship between England and Normandy takes centre stage as well as how this fits into France’s issues at the time. Events come to a head after the death of Henry I and the anarchy which follows, pitting Empress Matilda against Stephen for the throne. All of this, of course, leads to the rise of the House of Plantagenet.

    Recommended reading:

    The Blackwell Companion to Britain in the Later Middle Ages - Very good but themed thematically, so don’t expect a good overview of events but fantastic depth.

    Medieval Britain: A Very Shory Introduction - This is one of the best books for an overview of the politics of the period. It is very light on certain periods and misses out some continental context, though. Very cheap, though.

The episode covers the reigns of two kings, Henry II and Richard I, better known as Richard the Lionheart. It mostly focuses on their relations with France but also goes into detail about the conquest of Ireland and Richard’s role in the Third Crusade.

    The Plantagenet Empire, 1154-1224 - The best intro/summary that isn’t in French. Very good with describing the relationship between Henry II and his sons (specifically Richard and John).

    This episode covers the reign of King John and the problems he had securing the Angevin inheritance and the subsequent issues his baron’s posed. These problems culminated in the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215 which severely limited the strength of John and his son, Henry III, whose reign was overshadowed by the document.
