  • Hey Oversimplified, we know that your recent videos from the American Civil War up to this were pretty heavy on you as you took soo much time creating them, and we appreciate this. I want to suggest to make it easy for your next video, how about making another Mini-War video? Just in case you're feeling too tired.

  • Why would the people get rid of Napoleon and put back the same king they sought to get rid of in the first place? People are so dumb sometimes

  • Pretty well done .Berlin and Milan accords ? The Marshall's referred to can be found in citadel presses military 100.

  • Can you make a Vietnam War vid plz

  • There's no hope for the illegitimate President Joe Biden

  • Could you make a Vietnam war vid please you hinted towards one in ur Cold War vid and I couldn’t find one idk if you made one or not if you didn’t could you?

  • Who came here after people tried to cancel him lmao

  • Lets be Honest you came here for The "Horses make Horses part"

  • It would be cool if you made Operation Valkyrie

  • I love this channel

  • Lmao hope for Joe Biden, yeah right he falls down every set of stairs and forgets what cafe he's in 🤣🤣🤣

  • Napoleon: *Messes a wining war up by invading Russia* Hitler: “Hmmm...?”


  • Congrats On Five Million! I love your videos!

  • 4:25 got me chuckle everytime

  • Spanish Civil War

  • Are you Kidding me?...Biden can't even make a complete sentence, much less wipe his own ass....bringing him insulting the french.

  • I really think you're oversimplifying the Napoleonic wars !

  • Napoleon was the real life equivalent of Edo-Madara


  • Man like always this was amazing btw do one on korean war or vietnam war

  • Vedio idea: how bout for a mini war episode you do the sand wars between Algeria and morocco

  • 29:33 song?

  • It only took him 4 months to beat them It takes me 1 hour to get out of bed

  • He also tried to reinstate slavery

  • can you do a video on the Irish war for independence

  • Was napoleon really that much of a off character?

  • Oversimplified whenever it gets cold: "And then it got cold... STUPID cold."

  • If Napoleon wanted to invade Russia, he could have finished the war with Spain, and maybe could have invaded the Ottoman Empire with his largest army.

  • It shows how complicated the Napoleonic Wars were that even OverSimplified had to dedicate over an hour to them.

  • Wait isnt the "genius" we run plan from the video of the emu war XD

  • If you do ancient history, I have a few suggestions. -The Greco-Persian wars -The Peloponessian wars - The Punic Wars

  • Can you make a video about Gustav adolf 2


  • Congratulations to 5 Million Subscribers

  • Damn I feel bad for Napoleon

  • You should make a series on the great northern war

  • When you’re so badass that the whole continent has to declare war on you for you to fail.

  • I hope you create "Vietnamese war" or the video of our mighty President "Ho Uncle"

  • 7:52, at least we know one thing both king Henry XIII and Napoleon have in common.

  • "There's still hope for Joe Biden" XD Made me wanna die lol

    • He may be practically dementia ridden, but as long as Biden does not usurp power and become a military dictator like Napoleon, make laws to reinstate slavery of blacks like Napoleon, make laws to deny women's rights like Napoleon, force the bulk of his country's youth into military service without an option like Napoleon, engage in foolish invasions like Napoleon, rush to war like Napoleon, backstab allies like Napoleon, end in total defeat like Napoleon, leave his country occupied by enemy forces like Napoleon, have his generals walk out on him like Napoleon, sell vast chunks of territory for fractions of a penny on the dollar the way Napoleon sold the Louisiana Territory, have enemy forces capture his capital city like Napoleon, forced into exile like Napoleon, leave his once powerful army in shambles like Napoleon, forcing his country to radically change governments like Napoleon, lose his country territory like Napoleon lost France territory gained in the French Revolution, have his country pay massive war reparations like Napoleon, all at the cost of a generation of his young countrymen killed in wars like Napoleon, and die a prisoner of war in a remote island like Napoleon, he would have done a better job than Napoleon. Because despite the positive narrative history and this video portrays, Napoleon was actually a reckless, incompetent, cruel, manipulative, warmongering military dictator and abuser of power who mass-murdered the French youth, who was just awful for France. There is a reason he ended in total defeat and died a prisoner on a remote island. There is a reason that even the French were actually cheering for a foreign enemy army marching down the streets of Paris since they hoped it would be the end of Napoleon. The facts show Napoleon destroyed millions of lives as military dictator, reinstated slavery of blacks, reckless in war that destroyed his own army, the most powerful army in the world, lost territory for France, and totally self-serving. It is actually possible for the dementia ridden Biden to be a better leader than Napoleon.

  • Good man with many flaws is what I see Napoleon as

  • it would be cool if OverSimplified did something on the balkans

  • War of 1812 Next??

  • you know u are a dangerous person when as a prison they put you on a island in the middle of nowhere guarded by 2000 Soldiers and 2 ships patrolling at all times

  • The screen behind the “You saved $40.20” pop up: They be groovin

    • have you noticed that hes at 4.99 mil subs almost at 5mil

  • The British only had deep pockets due to the Indian colony. If we Indians had driven away the british (and we could have. We were the richest country with hundreds of kings back then), all of Europe would be under Napolean and India would be the modern day America without the gun reforms XD
