I struggle with war stories

As a historian I swim in the almost endless and evergreen study of men’s effort to kill, wound, and destroy other men. Stories of war require a deft touch to not become simple voyeurism. The narrator of this podcast does an extraordinary service in his preparation & presentation. He keeps it real enough that we don’t forget the waste and stupidity of war without collapsing into bathos. Detailed but not oppressively so. Hopeful but grounded. I recommend without reservations.

2nd Battle of Passchendaele - Oct 30, 1917

Via my recent genealogy research, I discovered that my great-uncle Leo Victor Curley (1897-1917), a member of The Canadian Army, was killed on Oct. 30, 2017 during the 3rd Battle of Ypres (2nd Battle for Passchendaele), in Belgium, and he is buried at the nearby Tyne Cot Cemetery. Thank you for enlightening me about the history of this battle and helping me better understand his sacrifice, the difficulty his Divison faced, and the terrible loss of so many lives for the cost of freedom.

Fantastic, Thorough, and Contextual

This one of the best history podcasts I have ever listened to and the host certainly does his research and is pleasant to listen to! This is my favorite podcast so far on WWI and it starts out giving context prior to the original traditionally accepted 1914 start and with the July Crisis and works its way to and beyond the year 1918. It also talks about some of the Civil Wars and residual effects of conclusion of Great war and Versailles Treaty as well! There are hundreds of episodes of fantastic content for you to listen to!
