The Battle of Hastings took place nearest to a town called Battle. Hastings is around 7 miles away.

So? It's about the most important military event of the year... It was the "Battle of Hastings", or the "Battle of ... Battle"?

Why do you think they called it Battle? Battle didn't exist in 1066.

OK so since there was just a short line, I should've tried just hastings. But I kept trying Battle of Hastings and it wouldn't take it. A little leeway, please?

But it didn't say "BATTLE of Waterloo", so that should have been your key to how the answer had to be phrased. In analogies more than any other type of quiz, precision and pickiness is vital.

Midway and Stalingrad? How?

Level 82

Both were major turning point battles of the war. After the Japanese navy lost at Midway, it was basically over for them in the Pacific. Ditto for the Germans on the eastern front after they failed to take Stalingrad.

Stalingrad wasn't THE major turning point like Midway was. German soldiers were already being pushed back after their failure to take Moscow. The Battle of Moscow and following Soviet counteroffensive was likely the most critical turning point on the Eastern Front. The failure of Germany to take the southern oil fields because they lost at Stalingrad was also a loss, but Germany was definitely already losing to the Soviets. In fact, I believe German forces were already more than three quarters depleted by the time Stalingrad even happened. I'd say that the analogy is that they were both embarrassing and utter defeats.

I think that somehow how I got turned around. Kept typing "Cognito Ergo Sum", assuming that was the phrase that you were looking for; I could have sworn that "Veni, Vidi, Vici" was given.

Should be Attila the Scourge of God, just saying. Hun was his ethnicity

Perhaps, but he's MUCH more commonly known as "Attila the Hun." Doing a Google search for "Attila, the Scourge of God" gets me about 45,300 hits, while "Attila the Hun" gets me about 1,060,000.

But this quiz is about analogies (first name of a historic leader + his "mystic" sure name) and not about google matches.

But - hear me out - Richard the Lionheart gives 7,7 Million hits, while Richard the English gives almost a Billion.

Agreed. "Thes Scourge of God" should, at least, be allowed as a type-in. It's the byname that he received from his contemporaries (like Lionheart), while "Attila de Hun" is a much later epithet.

I can’t believe I got the Atlee question wrong due to a spelling error. Missing the ‘u’ in ‘labour’ was a good reason to not get the answer, however as a Canadian spelling ‘labour’, ‘labor’ is embarrassing.

I was going to say that for "veni vidi vici"!! But I assumed I must be wrong, because I thought if it was going to be that it would have two blanks, one for the first name and one for the surname, no?

Excellent quiz. I was just about to say "hey, in the US, we spell the word "labor"... but then I realized, oops, the Labour Party is a proper name, and proper names have to be spelled correctly... you caught this yank, and probably a few others. My mistake, and no complaints!

I tried "tao" for the "Laozi" question, might you consider accepting just this shortened form of the whole word? I can't speak as to whether it is technically or linguistically correct though I do feel like I have seen it used this way in common speech.
