Added DiffLines:

* The final flurry of messages between Kaiser Wilhelm and Tsar Nicholas II. These two men, ostensibly the leaders of two mighty nations, are talking to one another as nothing but men. More than that, they're speaking as ''family'', trying to hold off a war that will topple empires. They do not write to each other as Kaiser and Tsar, they do not write to each other as Wilhelm and Nicholas. They write to one another as Willie and Nicky. And they fail.

* The tragedy of Ned Kelly. Tried to live an honest life after briefly tasting bushwacking. ForcedIntoEvil after the law got on his case incorrectly, tried to be a noble gentleman thief in his work. Took up the outfit of a knight for his epic showdown, and then defeated, lead away to the gallows only saying, "Such is life."

* The way they portray Suleimam the Magnificent's later years, guilt ridden over his murder of his friend and two sons and the death of his wife and favorite son. The worst part is the final moments of his life, imagining that everybody is still alive and talking to him before his death.

* For all her successes, Catherine the Great failed to settle her succession. Her son Paul became similar to the husband she hated and he always felt distant from her. Despite his decent qualities being spotted on his tour of Europe, Catherine refused to let him get involved in government or give him any responsibility, effectively treating him as she had been treated as a child. It's hard not to feel sorry for Paul for always feeling insecure about himself and never getting reveal his talents, just like Catherine when she was younger.

-->'''Daniel Floyd:''' Then Pourtalés rises to his feet, and takes the piece of paper from his pocket, and says "In that case, sir, I have the honour to inform you that...we're at war."

''*opening piano notes to [[TearJerker/{{Music}} In Flanders Fields]] start to play*'' Sazonov kindly offers to send somebody to help gather his things. And a month later, a million men are dead. The Seminal Catastrophe has begun.
