When Diplomacy Fails: The First World War

Postby kerchi » Sun Feb 10, 2013 1:40 pm

This is for anyone with a general interest in the First World War and for those of you who are also interested in the run up to the war of how it all really came about, not just because of the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand.........it goes much further back than that; events as far back as 1886 are contributed to the First World War so you know this is going to be a detailed and worthwhile podcast. The first three episodes only get you up to 1913!

The podcast in general covers many different wars in detail and, in the words of the author, Zack Twamley, "looks at the build-up to, break out of and consequences of wars throughout history". In this particular case, Zack is doing a special on the First World War that will run for nine episodes in total and all episodes can be found on the author's website below.

Here's a link to the author's website: When Diplomacy Fails
Here is the link to the first episode: The First World War Part One: 1886-1895

Give it a try and see what you think ;-)
In memory of John Bardgett (15309 L/Cpl.), 11th Border Regiment who died 1st July 1916.
