Many historical 'facts' are contested and debated by historians.

Things like the cause of the fall of the Mycenaean civilization, which, along with Crete, comprised the 1st Greek empire, fought a war with Troy, and literally disappeared from the face of the Earth.
Things like did the Roman Empire really fall, or did it just 'absorb' invaders and convert them to the Roman way of life and governance.
Things like the cause and mistakes in execution of the 1st World War. And its contribution to the beginning of the 2nd World War.
Things like Papal authority ( even over Emperors ) and the amassing of power and corruption by the Church, along with wars encouraged by the Church and the selling of 'Salvation' which led to splintering into differing 'sects'.
Things like was the Vietnam War winnable, and more importantly, was winning necessary or of benefit.
Things like the paradigm shift that brought about the Renaissance.

How many did you want me to list ...

Some example threads in Politics or Other Sciences would be better than a list to demonstrate interest in the subject.

Very interesting topics. Looking forward to seeing them posted. I've got some other historical topics to suggest.

I'm glad to have you back, @MSC, after the pachi-dermatological treatment.

As am I! I've a few historical ones of myself to suggest in the future. 

Yes, the treatment worked wonders. Turned out all I had to do was try to bathe in a field of cacti and listen to Dostoyevsky insult me five or six times a sentence. Half-True story, everyone should try it!

Disclaimer: The cactus stunt suggested here is fictitious and should only be performed by the professional idiots out there in the world... To YouTube!

Absolutely not! You just read some Dostoyevsky and started Russian to conclusions.

Am I Russian to conclusions or are you Gulagging behind?
