"John. This is the John Batchelor show classical Greek classical rogue, the Greek and Latin scholars amongst us. What do they know here in the twenty first century that can help all of us we were deprived, or we skipped Latin and Greek in school, and those of us who took it may not have it published. However, there are three subjects that everyone can unite on fascinating to study twenty five hundred twenty three hundred two thousand years later Alexander Hannibal and Caesar each man, I hero at a conquer for his own time. A new book masters of command Alexander Hannibal Caesar and the genius of leadership coming from a classical scholar. In fact, a professor of history and classics at Cornell University, Barry Strauss, Barry. Congratulations and good evening. And these three names we could. Actually, make them into ice cream flavors. They're so popular in the twenty first century, but in their own time, they were rising men not all young men. Alexander was young Hannibal was not young. But he was not old in Caesar was a mature man, I begin with Alexander because this is the oldest this is fourth century BC. His father Philip was conquer very successful. And he put Alexander toward sixteen is my memory. Alexander was successful at sixteen at eighteen again at twenty how was Alexander regarded in the court, and in Macedonia out as Philip's, son. Was he seemed to be a rising star a chip off the old block or was he seen as a weak or deficient or vein in some fashion? Good eating professor. Good evening. It's great to be here. John thanks for having. That's terrific question. I think that those are new L vendor. Fast had offensive just talented that he was. Even the young man and just how formidable he didn't even that. Will it was easy to underestimate him? He was so young and relatively inexperienced. His father had cats such a giant shadow and really had taken NASA on from from the boonies to being the leading date in the Greek world revolution that Philip undertake in creating mass donating state the modern Macedonian state in creating the Macedonian armed forces. It was hard to believe at Alexander at the age of twenty could step into his father's shoes. Let alone at do them. And yet he did. So he was he was a great surprise to many people many of his subjects were bailed when he came on with Ronin both states to the north of mass and on the dominated in boosted the south, but most many degrees city states revoked particularly in Athens, and they never thought. Alexsandr dominated as he would was Alexander. Understood as a fighter a ruler of kid would they have disregarded him because of his age. Absolutely. You know, the age would have been a complete Colonel to the people at the time. They distrusted young men. I thought they were hunting bird and experienced in incapable of the judgment and skill that was needed to succeed. But they they really underestimated Alexander. He he was supremely talented, and, you know, take home bowl metaphor. He was the coach's son somebody who had been wound for success in field is entire life. But he also was smart enough to know what he didn't know. And he made sure that he had senior men around him. Who could fill in the blanks that he was incapable of filling and he'd deferred to that. When. Sorry. Particularly early in his career. It's one of the secrets of six success. Heels. Dairy is very intelligent, very good judgments. He knew when to say, no. But he kept them around important. They were it helped to no end Hannibal. This is the next century the third century BC hannibal's born to forty-seven around his thirtieth birthday. He makes the big move to March on Rome. But he also is the son of a very successful. Military commander hammock are Barca and Hamill car Barca made his sons reputation by introducing them to the army when they were in Spain. This was another chip off the block was he well, regarded thirty as old enough to take command into against Rome. He was very well regarded particularly in his army. I mean army had cleaned him is issue of power, and he had succeeded in fighting against the Spanish tribes began to make his name like that. Of course, the fact that while there was so famous and that he seemed to be looked father. He acted like his father that inspired confidence among amenities. Army one of the great questions about Hannibal what can before him on the home fund? We know that the family had a reputation for. Being champions of the common man, having the support of ordinary people in Carthage the carnage was dominated by an oligarchy by the Carthaginians Senate. And although our sources are highly imperfectly, it seems as if the Senate was two minds about Hannibal on the one hand they respected him, and what his family had achieved on the other hand be distrusted him and his family. They practically ran an independent team in Spain. And he was young. So they supported him. They desperately wanted a war of revenge against Rome. They're a bit like Germany after the first World War wants to fight a war of revenge against the stakes of defeated. Good for doing. So, but they were not willing to write him a blank check. As it turns out. Yesterday. The Senate played Hannibal like a tool as opposed to obeying him in Hannibal never made a move the way we'll see with Caesar to take over the Senate in Carthage. It didn't come to that now. But we must mention Caesar Caesar is a mature person. I think he's around fifty when he crosses the Rubicon. He has become one of the senior. And most successful commanders enrollment history by conquering Gaul, bloodily and brutally over many decades. He has a very loyal the the legions of very loyal to him, but his rival Pompey at this time outshines him does that mean that Caesar is seen as an upstart as an outsider when he makes the move on Rome. Outsider. But he is seeing he's his enemies always thought of him quite correctly as somebody who was on scrupulous, and who would stop it at nothing to succeed. And they worried about him if somebody would overturn the Roman constitution for his own, and they didn't much like Pompey either the men of the Senate and they recognize the palm team Caesar similar in many ways, but they rightly saw Pompey recognized limits. Poppy was not Pompey was not willing to do anything to get ahead. Pompey wanted in the end to be admired by the system. Here's an establishment figure. He wanted to have huge power. And to have the Senate recognize him as number one would've liked that to be engaged in methods. The Senate consider just unacceptable. He was much more of a dog. And then Pompey was much more of a populace than Pompey which made the Senate nervous. And I think the Senate rightly felt that Caesar just was much more than one term than Pompey. Whatever be awful lack the killer instant that Caesar had in spades. So yes, he was seen as a very dangerous figure not really not fighter because he was a member of the Roman aristocracy, maybe in a way seen as a traitor to his class. I've often wondered professor Crassus Crassus is killed in the east and a battle. But Crassus was the third part of the triumph a triangle of Pompey Caesar and Crassus, and I've often puzzled whether Crassus his death. This is a man who played most famously by Laurence Olivier in Spartacus movie Crassus is the one who finally conquers Spartacus any celebrated because he he he put down the slave revolt. Does Crassus his death triggered this dispute between Caesar and Pompey the absence of third part? I mean, that's an excellent question. If Crassus had lived, it would have made it more difficult. You might he might very well have played immediately role between Caesar and Pompey. And I mean by no means was it impossible to have a compromise. When Caesar cost through the story of the civil war. I think part of the problem with that the Senate chef didn't trust Caesar. What Caesar wanted was not that extreme but the Senate, but where is this going to lead or puppy? If Crassus had been around he might have been the guy to step in and come up with a compromise. I could easily imagine it happening in forty nine. So you're right crisis. Did make the stakes higher. Did raise the stakes and it did make it more difficult for pumping to reading. Let's cross the line with the three Alexandra Hannibal and Caesar masters of command is the book, Barry Strauss. Professor, Barry, Strauss, the author when we come back the three heroes go to war.

Ancient historian, and I can assure everyone that the accuracy is not part of the equation here. I just went into it for one quick, Dan. Did you write this? The plot is often incoherent and gets an one gets the impression that the background research. Consisted of watching gladiator. Of watching gladiator a couple of times, the moral is dropped repeatedly like an anvil tied to a quasi for trooping crane into the audience, and the revisionism and Chinese nationalism is pretty thickly spread. But oh, if you take it for what it is a big Hammy movie with its heart firmly located in the right place, then it is incredibly fun. I was not bored. I was touched. I was intere- tained. Yes. It's wildly inaccurate. No. You can't do that. With swords. Partha was the first century. It was not ruled by woman Carvey has nothing to do with the dynastic struggle between Crassus brothers over the consul ship. Wait what and crafts not impart to sign a peace treaty room. Did not as it happens a national anthem, but the movie gets points passable Latin grammar and said anthem I could go on and on.

"crassus" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN
"At two six two seven eight six ninety two hundred I chose to bring Mike end to talk about this employee relationship because I've several employees or I should say employer relationship. I I work with a couple of corporations, and what I do is provide education where I am not selling any products or services, I'm really providing value and credibility to the benefits that they already have in place, which is huge. Because when you think about it if you have a HR employee standing in front of their employees oftentimes, they think. Yeah, that's what we have. But when somebody from the outside comes in and talks about the benefit and how they can use it an impact their financial wellbeing. It can have a great impact. So if you're working at a corporation, and you're thinking, you know, what I'd love to have somebody come in and just talk about our benefits and. Place talk about investment choices and retirement plan, and what does an asset allocation look like again, I'm using terms. You might not be familiar with. But I can go through that. Whether it be a lunch and learn or a half day or full day segment and with that sad. I wanted to bring in somebody who works with individuals that are going through an outplacement process as well as somebody who works with employers to help retain and attract and please. So before we move on. To attracting and retaining employees. I wanna give Mike an opportunity to look at the aspects and how they work with employers when going through an outplacement or a reduction staff reduction process, thanks, gene. It depends on the culture of the organization that we're working with how they want us to be able to work with their internal organization and their existing employees. And usually that starts with how well or is a is an organization going to partner with our company oftentimes what we find is that firms have no idea the depth of knowledge or the range of services that we have to offer. So notification support upfront even notify training support we offer for individuals organizations or groups those types of things to really help them understand. And and. Get what it is that they're about to go through. So that's that's up on the up front side. You know when we're looking at working with individuals. There are a number of key components that have to be part of any any search the first is really focusing on the market campaign management for an individual, you know, really helping them to design an execute an individual search action plan a plan that's focused on figuring out where they are where they want to go in a strategic plan that Crassus crosses skews me all job market channels in organizers their search in a way that they can actually look back at the end of the day of their eight hour workday and looking for a job, by the way, they need to take it as though it's a real job. And really look at the successes. They've had the next pieces focusing on both digital and social networking strategies. You know, the rise of technology today of Facebook and linked in tumbler and Instagram and on and on and on. People really need to understand what is their digital brand. And then figure out how the communication strategy, which is really the next piece how that communication strategy is articulated across all those different facets. So making sure that you don't have pictures on Facebook of posted of your tagged of you that that shouldn't be there making sure that your brand is focused and delivered in a way that is managed by you after all if you don't tell your own story someone else is going to and the internet loves telling stories that aren't exactly what we want them to be. So when you're looking at individuals that have recently been released or people that are re entering the workforce discovering. How it is that you want to be known for what you want to be known is really important also being able to focus on your compliments, and those results is great determining a determining factor. Easy for me to say right determining factor that will help someone to really articulate what their value is. As they move forward. Other job. Search necessities like resumes, cover letters portfolio, creation development, those types of things. That's really. Kind of the cost of entry for any outplacement firm to be able to do that. But to do that in a way that's results focused and accomplishments focused in a resume is very very important. You know, you're gonna have between twelve and fifteen seconds with any recruiter with your resume in front of them. That's all you get. So do you really want them to know how many different technology platforms? If you're not an IT person. You really want them to know, how many technology platforms are how wonderful you think you are. Because you've used all kinds of self value have words to talk about humble wonderful of person, you are three. Do you want to just get right to the facts? So we helped them create practical resumes that will articulate those types of things then from there. It's really all about interview preparation, how do you? And when I say interview preparation, it's not just how do you interview? For a job. It's how do you interview a company and their culture? Gonna the days where it used to be a seller's market. It's a buyer's market. In the buyers are the employees that are out there. But the biggest single source of employee's are already employed. So what are they looking for? How do they determine what a culture is of an organization, and how do they create their own list of necessities for what they want to go after how do they evaluate that in a way that doesn't feel to an organization as though they're giving them the Spanish inquisition, if you will right in how do you discern or take information from a client and really kind of put a picture together of what their culture is then from there, it's all about employment contract compensation negotiation strategies, but the final step that we walk people through is really new role assimilation coaching. So we will help those individuals when they've been out place put the search process together, they get their job. We help them negotiate the contract, and then from there the next thirty sixty ninety days, they need to make sure that there are simulated into that new culture. More times than not where people are going to fail in new jobs is anywhere within the first ninety days. So we help those people as much or as little as they need to go through the assimilation coaching process. So they can figure not just where the restrooms are. But how do you deal with corporate politics? How do you a dentist what those are in? How do you start building your brand within that organization that you've chosen to go through because at the end of the day? We all get to choose where we go, right? I choose to work at L A group when I was in corporate America working for a fortune one twenty five for for fifteen years. I made a very deliberate choice to leave because my own criteria in what I wanted to do in the impact I wanted to have on. On my community. We can talk a little bit later maybe about why I decided to do that. But that's really what I was looking to to accomplish everyone has to find that story for themselves. And once they figured out what that is figuring out how they can assimilate into that new culture is critical and a real big determinant for future success. And it's funny when you think about it your life morphs into different careers and different employers. And I know that first hand I two I worked for a firm that a global firm inherent at a family firm, and it was a very deliberate decision to do that. And that's because I one of my passions is working directly with individuals and families and couples, and so I can relate exactly to what you said. But I can also say when you talk about assimilating, the new employers culture that is key because when I worked at the corporate side. I would work with new employees who would comment. Well, that's now how I've done it in the past or that's not how this is usually done. And what would go through my mind is really you. You know, you chose this company. So it's funny. I assumed it was a very deliberate choice and change needs to happen. And so we did help those individuals reprocess how we think and how we we did. Thanks, so, but so much of that is about purpose and about reasons for making changes, I mean, we we all look for different reasons, and we all have our own criteria. My youngest child is fourteen years old my daughter, and when she was nine I like to blame the whole reason for me changing my job on her in her. Maybe inadvertent inquisitiveness about asking me. Why I do what I do. And you know, I was she she caught me monologue in once upon a time, you know, as a parent, I sometimes. Do that circuits? But she she asked me she s to be a very simple question. She probably doesn't even remember this. It was four years ago now five years ago now, but she after I was done doing that. She looked at me so dead set dad, so tell me about you know, how do you deal with change every single day? And I'm sitting here talking.

Of leadership, coming from a classical scholar in fact a professor, of history, and, classics at Cornell University Barry Strauss Barry congratulations, and good evening and these three names we could. Actually make them into ice cream flavors they're, so popular in the twenty, first century but in their own time they. Were rising men. Not all young men Alexander, was young Hannibal was not young but he was not old in Caesar was a mature, man, I, begin with, Alexander because, this is, the oldest this is fourth, century BC his, father Philip was, a, conquer very, successful and he put Alexander toward sixteen is my memory. Alexander was, successful at sixteen at eighteen again at twenty how, was Alexander, regarded, in the court and in Macedonia as Philip's, son was he seemed to be a rising star. A chip off the old block or was, he seen as a weak, or deficient or vein in some fashion good. Evening a professor Good evening. And it's great to be here thanks for having me that's terrific question I think that those are new hell exander past Joe talented he was even, young man and just how formidable he didn't know him that well it was, easy to. Underestimate him He was so young and relatively inexperienced and father cats such a. Giant, shadow really had taken mastodon from From the booties to being the leading state in. The Greek world revolution that fill up at undertaken creating the modern Macedonian state, and creating Macedonian armed forces. It was hard to. Believe that Alexander at the age of twenty father's. Shoes let alone at do them and yet he did The great surprise to many people many subjects would build when he came on the throne in both the states to the north of mastodon dominated and boosted. The south but most of many of the Greek city states rebel particularly feed, an avenue and bathing never. Thought that our exander Dominate the MSCI would was Alexander understood as a fighter a ruler a kid would they have disregarded him. Because of his age absolutely you know the age would have been a complete turn off to the capable of time Young, men I thought they were hot bird and inexperienced and incapable the judgement and What was needed to. Succeed and they they really, underestimated Alexander supremely talented and to. Take a homeboy metaphor he was the coach's son somebody who had been In feel Entire life but he also was smart enough to know what he. Didn't know and he made sure that he had senior men around him Who could fill in the blanks so he was. Incapable of filling in and he deferred to them when necessary Particularly early in his career it's one of the secrets of six hundred success He also had a very very good he, was very intelligent very good judgement. So he knew when to say no. Them but he kept them around important they were And No end, Hannibal this is the next. Century the third century BC hannibal's born to forty-seven around his thirtieth. Birthday he makes the big move to March on. Rome but he also is the son of a very successful military. Commander hammock are Barca and Hamill car Barca made his sons reputation by introducing them to the army when they were in. Spain this was another chip off the block was he well regarded at thirty as old enough to take command into a against Rome Was very well. Regarded particularly in the army I mean there's army cleaned position of power and he had succeeded in fighting against the Spanish tribes To, make his name like that of course the fact that Father was so. Famous and that he seemed to be looked like his father. He acted like his father that inspired confidence among demented army one of the great questions about. Hannibal is what people thought of him on the home front we know that the. Family had, a reputation for Being champions with the common man. And having the support of ordinary people in Carthage Dominated by an oligarchy by the Carthaginians. Senate and although our, sources are highly imperfect it seems as two minds. About Hannibal on the, one hand they respected. Him and what his family had achieved on, the other hand they, distrusted images family they. Practically ran an independent kingdom in Spain and, he was young so they supported him they desperately wanted a war revenge against well they're like Germany after the. First World War that wants to fight a war of revenge against b speaks defeated it Ticket for doing so but they were not willing to write him a blank check as it turns. Out The Senate played Hannibal like a tool as opposed to obeying him. And Hannibal never made a move, the way we'll see with, Caesar to take over the. Senate in Carthage it didn't come to that now but. We must mention Caesar Caesar is a mature person I think he's around fifty when he crosses the Rubicon he has become. One of the senior and most successful commanders enrollment history by conquering Gaul, bloodily and brutally over many decades he has a, very loyal the the legions are very loyal to him but his rival Pompey at this time outshines him does that mean that Caesar, is seen as an upstart as an outsider when he makes the move on Rome Outsider but he, is seen his enemies always thought of him quite correctly as somebody who is unscrupulous and who would stop it Nothing to succeed and they worried about getting somebody would overturn the Roman constitution for his own and They didn't much like, Pompey either the men of the Senate. And they recognize it Pompey and Caesar similar in many ways but they rightly saw Pompey recognized limits puppy was not Pompey was not. Willing to do anything. To get ahead Pompey wanted in. The end to be admired by the system here's an. Establishment figure he, wanted to have huge power recognize this number one season would have liked that too But. He engaged in methods Senate consider. Just unacceptable he was much more of a demo Don Pompey was much more. Populous than Pompey which made the Senate nervous And I think the Senate, rightly felt that, Caesar was much more of a longterm than Pompey. Whatever be, awful lack the killer instinct that Caesar had in spades so yes he was seen as a very dangerous figure not really an outsider because he was a member of. The Roman aristocracy Nadine away, seen as a traitor to his class I've. Often wondered professor Crassus Crassus is killed in the, eastern a battle but Crassus was the. Third part of the try a triangle of. Pompey Caesar and Crassus and I've often puzzled whether Crassus is death this is. A man who played most famously by Laurence Olivier in Spartacus movie, Crassus, is the one who finally conquers. Spartacus any, celebrated because he he he put down the slave? Revolt does Crassus his death triggered? This dispute, between Caesar and Pompey. The absence of the, third part I mean that's an excellent. Question if Crassus had lived it would, have made it more difficult You, might have he might. Very well have played, a mediating role between Caesar and Pompey And I mean by. No means was it impossible to have compromise when teaser cost accounting started the. Civil War I. Think part of the problem with that the Senate chef didn't trust Caesar What's. Your wanted was not that extreme but the Senate thought where is this going to lead Pompey Crassus had been. Around he might have been to step in and come up with a compromise I could easily. Imagine it happening in forty nine so you're, right crisis is. Death did make the stakes higher did. Raise the. Stakes and it did make it more difficult for, Pompey and Caesar seeking to agree.

The same time he was committed to an idea in his mind Republic whereas the senators the ruling elite and the people would go back and forth between who pays them well. And who's more dangerous and who has the dominant story at this moment whereas the story begins the triumvirate, have formed and they are. Extra-legal to say. That they act like dictators but it's a free. Man triumvirate we do we know about Julius, Caesar will meet him again he's the outsized general who operates in Gaul but the other, two are. Also important because ahead of us is a? Civil war puppy the great what. Do we need to know about him Robert and his relationship to Cicero Pump it right was Kind of a big the biggest figure in the Roman Republic by far fall bigger. This time of season he was a great. War hero. Dominant A big man in every sense. He looked like an all in wrestler Cicero was his His man really sincerely supported him disaster I facility Was when Pompey formed this alliance. With Caesar They married Caesar's daughter sees a bizarrely, even though he was older, than sees season became his father in law and the two of them made an alliance and Cicero wouldn't join it as so Pompey who all has been his great supporter turned. Against Cicero and sister. Was obliged to flee this happens a lot when the what you thought was your. Ally becomes your enemy because of another relationship and the third member. Of the triumvirate is Crassus in the picture I always get of Crassus always always always is a, grasping an extremely extremely ambitious man is that is that what Cicero made of him Oh yes he was says sister I've never really cared for him at all they were enemies from time to time they would have to make peace but sister I've never cared for him no Crassus Crassus is it's interesting crisis is one of those. Figures that you get in political systems the very very. Rich businessman who tries to. Buy his way into power I'm not going to mention any names, in your own political system, absolutely unnecessary to mention anything it's a common phenomenon and that is crisis he was the richest man in Rome or at least he was until a pumpkin seeds outstripped him and. That was to be. Quite important because the Roman Republic was really rut being run by these three men. Pulpy control the east of the season in trouble west and Crassus. Was right rich for the other two became very richer than he was and so crashes sponsored have, a share of the glory and really The beginning. Of the end of the triumvirate was.

It's incredibly, hot and he's he's marginalized he figures he's lost his chance. But his cook his correspondence with Caesar will revive his chances Caesar. At this point is has. Not conquered the Celts yet he's not conquered. All of Gaul the commander of the, Gauls is still thank you has not died yet so Caesar. Is upcoming at the beginning of this story Caesar from Cicero's point of view is both admired and feared is my reading of the way you present Cicero was that insists rose letters did he have a mixed opinion of Caesar always both both celebrating. And then aware of, the fact that the man was a killer Yeah absolutely The complexity of relationships is is. Is, fascinating Cicero definitely admired season away and seizes Cetinje rather liked Cicero sees it was a much. Harder individual and he was a military genius. Whereas Cicero was always first and foremost civilian and as the rule of law undermined by the triumvirate finished off by to say it. Gave way to whoever controlled the biggest army so the relationship, between seasons Cicero changed and in the end the book is called, dictates because because that that is what happens the triumvirate. Became unstable and finally season triumphed and Cicero in the second part, of the book had to make. His arrangements make an accommodation would sees it it's all. About power relationships between the path and Kato Oh Kato is the conscience of. The Republic from Cicero's point of view what is always convincing, about Kato and as I understand it George Washington that lot celebrated, Kato in the eighteenth century so it connects to the creation of the American Republic Cato was uncompromising that exhausted Cicero frustrated, him annoyed him did he find. Competition with Cato when Cato spoke very relationship I mean Kato Was. Terrific in many, ways he was unyielding you was the very opposite of of of the slippery and slide, Cicero for, instance when sees triumphed and goal and wiped out hundreds of thousands of Germans and Celts and the Roman Republic Senate proposed his fifteen days of. Celebration Kato rose in the Senate and, said on the contrary sees it should be handed over the Walker to the, Germans and she'll be tried by them because he's disaster on the Republic by fighting people with, him we had no quarrel entirely. Illegally I, mean it was breathtaking Breathtakingly dangerous, thing to do One. Cannot help but admire, cater but in the end his rigid unbending view of politics drove the Republican side over a cliff He wouldn't accommodate Caesar, in any way and the lack of subtlety helped precipitate, the civil war which ultimately this destroyed the Roman Republic and. A Mark Antony his name will come up in the course. Of the drama and of course he is the driving force that eventually on on horses Cicero and leads. To his death but as the story opens as Cicero faces the triumvirate Marc Antony is just one of number of strong young men, whom Caesar blesses but there's nothing. Special about him, he's descended however from a man whom Cicero had murdered to. Stop a conspiracy the Catalan conspiracy does that give Mark Antony and an, edge over Cicero that revenge Yes I think so I mean it's often overlooked, the fact that I mean what's really forcing sister and, it's noble to flee was the he was in charge of. The Senate when they put to death five conspirators one of. Whom as you say was mall constantly stepfather Mark Antony was any about eighteen at the time but of. Course he never forgot it and now this volume the sins of Cisco from from the previous volume come back to haunt him because, as you said Mark Antony it.

And he and Cicero are constantly sniping at one another they didn't like, one another Cicero regarded as a great threat in the noble Cicero says he's.

"And then what happens next is hard for historians to explain Spartacus, I guess could have tried possibly where he was out to escape via another port. I don't know. Maybe those, maybe those pirates kind of, you know, poison the well for him trying to use a c, could it tried to escape to another part of Italy? His force wasn't, I guess, completely trapped at any still had roughly thirty thousand troops able to. Fight, but for reasons lost to history. He decides to attack Crassus. Maybe he was just, you know, that aggressive maybe like, no, it was pride or something. The final battle took place in April seventy one BC somewhere in the upper scenarious valley Solarz valley sparks. A strategy appears to have been twofold. Usually use his cavalry to attack crosses archers and missile throwers wall Spartacus within leads infantry in an attempt to kill Crassus directly hoping that his army would fall apart after his death will crass built trenches to block spark, assist cavalry prompting a wild melee when spark has been jumped in and tried to stop their construction and then eventually spark his lined up his men for battle and then crashes lined up his men and then check this shit out. Now the two armies lined up for battle oppose each other, getting ready to have a big epic fight, and then Plutarch road the just before this battle Spartak his gets off his horse and then kills his horse and tells his men. If he won the battle, he would have many fine horses that belong to the enemy. But if he lost, he would have no need of a horse. That is some serious man shit. I have never done anything. One percent is mainly as that in my tire life. Sometimes I've thought about getting out of my truck in a moment in road rage and punches somebody out in traffic, but I've never done it. Yeah, I'm sure out of some kind of fear of yellow people a lot, but but it's never really went farther than that other than some childhood pushing light punching kind of stuff. Spartak is killed his fucking horse in front of his men. They told him they're gonna take the enemy's horses or they're not gonna need horses because they're going to be dead. That is some serious. You know, tonight we dine in hell. That's an that shit Spartak his his cavalry, apparently unable to reach Crassus missile Trowers and archers undeterred spark the head of his troops and on foot lead. The charge against Crassus Spartacus is said to have hacked down to centurions in his final attempt, but it was in vain. There's varying accounts about his death, but the all end with him being surrounded and then killed, and then with his death is army falls apart and crashes, and other Roman forces hunt down the remaining rebels. Now the body, the body of skews me of Spartacus was apparently never identified. In his story, and his final struggle might have left only the badly, disfigured body of a soldier dressed in ordinary armor. So just wouldn't be able to be distinguished from other men. So you know, it's, I think somebody won't have this fantasy that like he escaped that's I don't think so it's very highly, highly, highly unlikely. He's probably just buried in a mass grave with the rest of his troops. And you know, even if archaeologists find it, they're not gonna be able to distinguish this famous commander from any of the other troops because he wasn't wearing anything different than them. While most of his army of slaves were killed in this battle, the remaining army, six thousand were captured, and then six thousand were crucified along the way from Rome to Capela a reminder to other slaves to never do this again, six thousand crucifixions. That's a lot of work for somebody. You know, somebody flipped their shit when they hurt when they had that order to pull that off. He wants. He wants to crucify how many six thousand has he lost his mind. We don't have that many crosses. We can't build that many. We don't have the nails. We all the time. He's. He said what he says, have it done by Monday or I will be crucified. Okay. All right. All right. All right. We'll figure something out somebody's. There's got to be a good would or nail guy around here somewhere up Narayan while Spartak his uprising was crushed. His memory does live on more so than the Romans who fought against him or otherwise opposed him..

"Snip tune. It gets tricky. Uris see thief. Spartakist ordered his troops to assemble boats of their own. You try to cross himself. They succeeded in building a number of boats, but they, they weren't good enough to make across the strait. So he he's, he's, he's kind of abandoned that plan is trips are stuck on the Italian mainland two damn miles, and it didn't have the seafaring knowledgeable at off. So this leaves products with no choice, but to go back up north again this time, you know, by the time he'd reached the straits and been trying to get across and had the whole pirate debacle in a new leader named Marcus lascivious Crassus as taken command of the Roman forces against him. Now, Crassus was a little more formidable than previous guys who'd come after him. He was wealthy individual very wealthy able to raise a large army and pay them at least in part out of his own pocket, and he was a ruthless motherfucker in his business dealings. Plutarch said crashes had a scheme where he bought up the burning properties and the buildings in a neighborhood of those alight as the owners would surrender them for small, some of money out of fear and uncertainty set that he thought that he might have also set. Fires to get kind of that stuff that's messed up, you know. So said a neighbor it on fire, then come to us terrible. We'll up. I'll buy properties. I know it's not worth much, but I'll take it his in his military life. He's even more rootless among us forces with the remnants of legions belong into Gillies and lentil that had been previously defeated by Spartacus. And as a consequence, quote, Crassus selected every tenth man from the consular legions by lot and had him executed, an opinion wrote debt. He also revived a practice called decimation where units that ran away from the enemy would draw.
