    Potential consequences of a successful Monmouth rebellion

    I think you missed the part where I said it would need to be a very different Monmouth rebellion to succeed, by which I meant that it would be a Monmouth Rebellion very dissimilar to the Monmouth Rebellion. Though I will say that do agree that a Williamite attempt is likely if James-Scott is...

    Potential consequences of a successful Monmouth rebellion

    I'm really not, my point entirely is that as you said "things happen" and that a victory for James-Scott at Sedgemoor upends the conventional wisdom. I never once stated that it would lead to an automatic victory, only stating that few rebellions ever won a battle and that his doing would...

    Potential consequences of a successful Monmouth rebellion

    I'm going to have to fundamentally disagree that 1685 and 1688 were unalike. My point is not that 1685 is a direct prior example/precursor but more that there was a similar opportunity that could be exploited if the rebellion had lasted longer. When I spoke of great opportunity, I spoke more of...

    Potential consequences of a successful Monmouth rebellion

    I think you underestimate the effect of a military victory at Sedgemoor, and the potential reaction of James II that might cause people to affect to the rebellion. A military victory at Sedgemoor would have meant that many of the more radical Protestants and those who had been pushing the...

    Potential consequences of a successful Monmouth rebellion

    I would agree James seemed to have a "honeymoon" period, but if we look at the man over his life we see that he's awful at overreacting to threats, given how the trials from this Monmouth rebellion and the executions caused William's attack. I do think you say too much against the rebellion...

    Look to the West Volume III: Equal and Opposite Reactions

    It wasn't a pure complaint, part of it was also me trying to figure out whether or not to finish "The Bloody Man" which I am reading on unlimited before reading Equal and Opposite Reactions or to do so afterwards by returning TBM. I did buy the other two volumes after reading them both on...

    Look to the West Volume III: Equal and Opposite Reactions

    This is a bit selfish, but I take it 2 will be the last to go on Unlimited? And without wishing to be rude, though I apologise if I come across as such, does SLP decide Unlimited or no or you? Ie, is this something that might change later with it going on unlimited in a year or some such. Will...

    Potential consequences of a successful Monmouth rebellion

    I've been thinking of doing this timeline, and I've come to the conclusion that a successful Monmouth rebellion would need to be a very different Monmouth rebellion. Essentially, by the time the rebellion starts then barring a miracle he can't win. However, if we do see a miracle then well...

    AH: Operation Sea Lion – the unmentionable sea mammal

    That's really interesting, how did Hitler and the others take to this line or arguing? Did any of them see through it, or atleast comment on it if they did?
