Hello Kaung Myat Kyaw,

I'm afraid the videos on our site are not available for download for legal and technical reasons. We make many of our audio files available, however, so on audio-only pages look for the .mp3 link.

I know nothing about English Civil War. Most of things I've learnt about England is throw historical movies like "The Vikings", "Robin Hood", "Ivanohe", "Jane of Arc"....
I think the most important event in French History is the French Revolution , in 1789, and its famous declaration of human rights. But there are many more.

I think, I heard or read something about English Civil War from somewhere but I have no enough information, unfortunately. We have lots of important historical events in our history. But I think the most important ones were Independence War (1919-1923) and foundation of Republic of Turkey by Atatürk (1923)

I don't know about the English Civil War
The most important historic event for Turkey was the Independence War from 1919 to 1923
