    Prussia is just pre-germany

    And the Germanic barbarians were so badass even the Romans couldn't contain their ****. They're neutered in Rome Total War though, as are all barbarian races.

    Depends on the history book. If it's the 'Beginner's History Book' read by third graders then most non-American history will get left out.

    But in most proper history books, a lot of major victoires had Scottish troops involved.

    Self-determination is a good thing, as certain events in 1776-1785 show.

    Do they still have War Cries? Those things were a Godsend, especially right before Diablo and Baal.

    The Scottish heritage is my point, and Scotland itself has been significant as I've argued so far.

    You're missing the point again. "Involving troops" and "led by" are completely different things.

    The American colonies actually had something to gain from being independent. Most modern independence movements are just for the sake of nationalism, like Tibet.

    I see you haven't read a proper history book.

    If England had taken over Scotland better, would that have changed history at all?
