Stefou Lies # 18_”Philip II United the Greeks”
The systematic counterfeiting of the history of Macedonia by the Skopjans since 1944 and their attempt to monopolize the “Macedonia” name were considered by the Hellenic people as absurd and unworthy of their attention.
Stefou was one from the Skopjan that use lies in order to expose his propaganda. He uses the net name Risto Stefov but sell books with the name Chris Stefou. This article is an answer in his series book that supposed show Greek lies, produces nationalism and interism and of course has many historical un-accuracies and propaganda guide lines and can you read here
Chris Stefou(aka Risto Stefov) you forget something critical as about the Hellenic ancient history. Hellas was not only the Macedonians. Were the Ionians, the Spartans, the Atheneans and of course the Thebeans.
Phillip as is known was hostage under the Epaminondas rule.A hostage the teached and took the all known Greek education.He learned from the Epaminondas this that the all Greeks had as dream. The Greek Revenge against Persians.
Chris Stefou(aka Risto Stefov) the Macedonian king just fulfilment of his mentor Thebean Epaminondas dream!!!Lewis Vance Cummings in “Alexander the Great” at the page 20 mention…..
Philip had been a boy of thirteen when he was taken as a hostage to Thebes. He had been well treated, and placed in charge of Epaminondas, perhaps the greatest Greek of that day. The Thcban was a man of culture, an orator of the first caliber, a politician of consummate shrewdness and ability, a strategist and general with the driving power of a Spartan. By sheer force of domineering will power he had won from the people of Thebes their blind obedience and made himself supreme in the city. He had tried, fruitlessly, largely by diplomatic chicane, even to the extent of intriguing with the Persian king and even sending Pelopidas to dance attendance upon the foreign monarch, to force Theban ascendancy in matters pertaining to the policies of all Greece
It was later said that Epaminondas’ intentions were the same as those of Jason, ultimately to use his ascendancy to force unity of Greece for the purpose of attacking the Persian Empire. But he had run into the stone wall of insular hatred that kept all Greeks in constant bitter turmoil. The Greek city-states, jealous of their individual prerogatives and governed by frequently changed personalities, would never agree to genuine co-operation, or, having agreed, would break any agreement to gain an advantage or upon the slightest fancied insult. They had become politically incapable of forming a lasting confederation for mutual defense or betterment, and were individually too weak to defend themselves in the face of any logical combination or alliance.
Epaminondas had failed in his dream, but the scope of his vision, mental resources, military prowess, and diplomatic cleverness had fired young Philip’s imagination
Chris Stefou(aka Risto Stefov) you forget to mention that the major Greek formation was the phalanx. That can be defined as a body of heavy infantry drawn up in close rectangular formation at least several ranks deep. This usage of the term is found as early as Homer, but its later usage to denote a massed military formation became common only in the Macedonian period. The heavily armed infantryman himself is called a hoplite, from the name of his shield (hoplon). His equipment followed a fairly standardized pattern. Macedonians ,particuraly Philip, his genius for organization and tactical innovation is evidenced in his adoption of the wedge formation for cavalry and the command structure he developed for his heavy infantry or the known Macedonian phalanx. What in the end resulted was the culmination of a trend that had shown itself increasingly in Greek warfare in the course of the 4th cent: a growing complexity in the composition of military forces now made up of contingents fighting with diverse types of equipment and carrying out specialized tasks. Before Philip no Greek state had the capability of doing this on any large scale. Philip as Greek adopted the Greek warfare and improved it.
Chris Stefou(aka Risto Stefov) you mention the battle of the Chaeronia.Your Gandeto forget to inform you what was the writer that mention the case sister of Theogenes.Was the Diodoros Siceliotis that mention in his 16th book quote 95…..
