Siege of Vienna - Tunnel War - Extra History - #2

The siege presses on from its initial active resistance phase to the long, routine drudgery of survival on the inside and elaborate defense building on the outside: earthworks and revelins designed by Georg Rimpler. Meanwhile, the Ottomans prepared to attack via gunpowder prepared inside mining tunnels.

    Winter was coming-that’s what had doomed Suleiman when he’d tried to take Vienna back in 1529. The bitter cold. The Grand Vizier swore history would not repeat itself. Because soon, his mining tunnels would be ready. Get early access to episodes at

    Hey EC, what are your thought on the Norte Dame fire. Personally I’m extremely saddened because 800 years of art, religion, history, architecture, literary work are all gone in an instant.

    Wow, they had a choice between being a second class citizen or death, such merciful Ottomans. They fact that this is considered merciful by many Muslim empires standards is proof of why Europe really should have united to drive out the foreigners

    Re: roof rabbits Didnt know that was invented the? You sure? . I just know that cats and rabbits carcasses - skinned ans sans paws/head - are nearly impossible to tell apart. Very similar bodybuild. Veterenaries in germany and italy still have to learn that, a relic of the war times when a lot of butchers used to sell cats as rabbit.

    In 300 everyone praises Sparta. In this battle everyone praises Poland and Prussia. But aren't the viennese men the guys who discouraged the enormous enemy forces with outdated defenses? Their emperor flees and they fight so fucking brave. Just so everyone can celebrate "Rohan". I mean they had cannons. The wall wasn't build for that. It's insane that they didn't loose or gave up. Fuck the hussars. Good job Vienna

    holy shit, imagine being a miner back then, tunneling under the ottomans hearing the screams and bombs go off above as the ground shook. Suddenly you strike the earth, and the ground opens, you hear hollering in a foreign language, and a turk runs at you swinging a pickaxe. He misses and you swing at his head, it splatters his brains all over the floor and he writhes and growls. You want to turn back and run, but you know the only way out now is forward through the turkish tunnel, your unit won't let you leave till you kill every other tunneler, and collapse the Turkish tunnel.
