Siege of Vienna - Opening Bombardment - Extra History - #1
Note: The New Zealand Council for Victim Support Groups is a charity set up by the NZ Ministry of Justice. They have promised that all donations are "fenced funds" that will only be used to support for the victims of the shooting and not used for the general fund. In addition, GiveALittle has waived service fees for this page. While the transaction can only be done in New Zealand Dollars, Extra Credits team members had no problem making donations with US cards. Sadly, the funding efforts collecting donations in US Dollars are no longer active.
Mehmed IV wanted to live up to, and even surpass, the legacy of his forefather Mehmed II, who had secured the Ottomans' inheritance to the Roman Empire through his conquest of Constantinople. So the current Mehmed decided to target Vienna--but Emperor Leopold dismissed these threats...

    Over a hundred thousand Ottoman troops are heading for Vienna. Only 15,000 men defend the walls. They have only six days to prepare the city. How long can they hold?

    You know what? I was playing EU4 as Austria. I JUST became defender of the faith, and the Ottomans attack. And you know what. After a few years past and all of my forces were on that side. The French decide it's a good time to join the Ottomans. Though this time Poland really was their target.

    Do not hate a man for his skin, nor his faith, but for his decisions, a fair judge of character can't be passed on to a race, but rather to an individual. And as such it is all down to morals.

  28. The History Critic Guy

    The History Critic Guy19 days ago

    I’m really glad this trilogy looks at the Second Battle of Vienna as a political strategic event and not the battle over religion more specifically a battle over the evil “dumb Muslim hordes” as I’ve seen several videos that mention how this was all over religion and trying to draw parallels between something that happened almost 400 years ago and now. That kind of stuff is dangerous and it’s exactly how misinformation gets out like they mention in the opening and how tragedies like the Mosque shooting in New Zealand happen. Racism is born when history amounts to a twisted persons views in modern day society. Thank you Extra Credits for making this series

    Really good video! I ve read a very interesting book on the topic and by the sound of the video, you might have read it too, as a lot of the video´s content is more or less adressed in the book. Its name is "Enemy at the Gates" by Andrew Weathercroft. I can only recommend it to everyone interested. Also it is a shame, that the events of the siege and even the persons involved get instrumentalized by terrorists.
