For the new project, please visit http://jordic.com/ffracer This animation shows all important battles that took place over the last ten centuries. The sizes of the explosions and labels are proportional to the number of casualties. The music is "Ride Of The Valkyries" by Richard Wagner. The data comes from the wikipedia article, List of Battles. Most of the activity seems to happen in Europe, this is because the english wikipedia was used. In a future release of this video I will merge wikipedias in different languages to solve this bias.
"Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), WWV 86b, Act 3: Ride of the Valkyries" by Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and Mariss Jansons, Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra (Google Play • iTunes • AmazonMP3)
