          Alesia, for the love of god, give us Alesia!





          Sorry, it's just arguably my favorite battle to read about.

              Battle of Thermopylae

              I would like to see the Battle of Thermopylae animated, to see the famous 300's last stand.

                Maybe it's just out of the timeframe but Adrianople just for the sheer poor performance from the Byzantines

                    Well, if you're going to do 30minute to 1hr animated program for kids, then lets see the entire Iliad or History of the Pelopemesian War animated. Those would probably need about two hours or be done as part of a multi-part short series program.

                      Cannae would have an interesting mix of troops, dynamic action, and high drama.

                        We need more battles in Chinese antiquity.

                        Lets try this battle for starters

                          I say more battles of the Han-Xiongnu War.

                          Massed crossbow formations, cavalry, and armored chariots vs massed cavalry archers and lancers.

                            I'm looking to spend more time on Asian military history in the next few seasons actually. I'm planning to animate the battle of Maling, 342 BC and Lake Poyang, 1363 in an upcoming season and am looking to do others.

                            A lack of sources will be a great obstacle to animating Chinese battles however. What books/articles could you guys refer me to as a start?
