Black represents Losses and Red initiates Victory. Most have been one of the most efficent forces in battle with so many victories or a 700 hundred year period.

They were too busy fighting instead of "getting it on"?

Supposedly, that is why they started their occupying and wars. Because they were doing it too much.

All the battles were pretty good for the victories that the Vikings did. And some of these places are extremely important places of power. London, Constantinopole, Paris and on and on.
