During the years of French ruling in Croatian-Slovenian parts, Croatians served in many French military formations. Napoleon was one of many rulers that were fascinated by Croatian war skills, he said to General Marmont: "I never had more braver and better soldiers". Napoleon also said this: "Croatians, there are best soldiers in the world. If I had only 100000 Croatians, I would conquer the entire world!".

Croatian troops, under Major General Šlivarić, in the Battle of Berezina (26-28 November 1812) saved Napoleon's life. Day after, Napoleon said: "Croatians! I am very pleased with you!"

..the Croats are unique in the sense that they kept the Catholic faith which everyone chucked away many,many years ago! The thanks we got!? The croats more than other resemble the old Romans in their etiquette and culture which is full of chivalry and honor!

Romans were greedy SOBs, decadent and immoral slave owners and genocidal maniacs(Dacia). Half of their emperors and consuls were mental cases and all the culture they got was from Greeks. chivalry and honor-bollocks.

this is a pasty for all "balkan rocket scientist"
who have given so much to history in the name of
croat's,serb's,boanian's,black mountain national's,and slavic alexander the great's

As mentioned, the term Greco-Roman world describes those regions who were for many generations subjected to the government of the Greeks and then the Romans and thus accepted or at length were forced to embrace them as their masters and teachers. This process was aided by the seemingly universal adoption of Greek as the language of intellectual culture and at least Eastern commerce, and of Latin as the tongue for public management and forensic advocacy, especially in the West (from the perspective of the Mediterranean Sea). Though these languages never became the native idioms of the rural peasants, the great majority of the population, they were the languages of the urbanites and at the very least intelligible, often as corrupt or multifarious dialects, to those who lived outside of the Macedonian settlements and the Roman colonies. Certainly, all men of note and accomplishment, whatever their ethnic extractions, spoke and wrote in Greek and Latin. Thus, the celebrated Roman jurist and Imperial chancellor Ulpian was Phoenician, the Greco-Egyptian mathematician and geographer Claudius Ptolemy was a Roman citizen and the famous Christian expounders John Chrysostom and Augustine were pure Syrian and Berber respectively. The eminent and learned Jewish historian Josephus Flavius was a Jew by religion, wrote and spoke in Greek and was a Roman citizen! Properly speaking, the term "Greco-Roman World" signifies the entire realm from the Atlas Mountains to the Caucasus, from northernmost Britain to the Hejaz, from the Atlantic coast of Iberia to the Upper Tigris River and from the point at which the Rhine enters the North Sea to the northern Sudan. The Black Sea basin, particularly the renowned country of Dacia or Romania, the Tauric Chersonesus or the Crimea, and the Caucasic kingdoms which straddle both the Black and Caspian Seas are deemed to comprehend this definition as well. As the Greek Kingdoms of Western Asia successively fell before the reputedly invincible arms of Rome, and then were gradually incorporated into the universal empire of the Caesars, the diffusion of Greek political and social culture and that of Roman "law and liberty" converted these areas into parts of the Greco-Roman World. The slow but inexorable transformation of the "Empire" from an aggregation of the city of Rome, to a Mediterranean Commonwealth, the stark frontrunner of today's United Nations and more visibly the European Union (a group of disparate and independent countries united by a single religion, language, history and future or at least cause), intensified the "Romanization" and "Hellenization" of these areas. The universal adoption of Christianity by the Mediterranean peoples as their religion strengthened these bonds and they would have undoubtedly solidified had not the vexatious theological questions of the late 4th and 5th centuries undone the stupendous work of almost half a millennium of political, cultural and ethnic assimilation and unity.

The country of Croatia takes FIRST PLACE as the only country in the world that devoutly proclaims with pride of being Roman Catholic,we sacrificed so much to remain Catholics,and countries hate us for this,BUT only a Croatian can understand why this is so
