Hi Indy and Team. While you talk about very large fronts and battles that stretch over many kilometers, you very often refer to events at Delville Wood. Could you explain why this relatively tiny wood was so heavily contested?Answered 10 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
In one of the previous episodes, you mentioned that the Belgian King and Commander did not want to join the (major) attacks in the Somme and others. How did the British command react, knowing that the violation of their neutrality was one of the big reasons Britain joined of the war? Did the Belgian army perform some attacks on their own or was their part of the line pretty quiet? Thanks a lot!Answered 10 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
Hi Indy, thanks to you and the team for the show. As it was the centennial of the start of The battle of Verdun yesterday, what would you consider to be the worst battle in The Great War in terms of casualties, treatment and living conditions of the soldiers?Answered 10 months ago.

Hi, Mr Indy (I don't know if this is the correct wya to ask a question for OOTT but it's worht trying), I have recently dug in more about the catastrophic Russian defeat at the battle of Tannenberg and what I couldn't understand was if there were major rivalries inside the Russian high command and how the Russian commanders in Tannenberg had failed in coordinating their forces properly? Also, I love your videos about the Great War, it has been always a habit of mine to find out more about the war's historical events.Answered 10 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
Hello if it is possible can you put this on Out Of The Trenches? Were there any huge Naval battles in the mediterranean or any battles fought on smaller islands? If so, were the USMC and British Commonwealth involved in said battles?Answered 10 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
How come the Greeks or Bulgarians weren't helping the Anglos at Gallipoli? Even if they didn't expect to get any of 'their' lands back out of the deal, I would think they'd have plenty of beefs to settle with the Ottomans....Answered 10 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
Did the Austro-Hungarians and Italians duke it out in the Med? Did Germany and Russia tussle in the Baltic? I know there will be more Anglo-Germanic seaborne fighting later (no spoilers), but have never heard much of the powers' naval actions.Answered 10 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
Shame there wasn't anything about Mojkovac in the episode from January 7. 6500 Montenegrians vs 30,000 Austrians a Thermopylae of its kind. Surely a tactical Montenegrin victory which allowed the Serbian army to endure and fall back to Albania and later Greece.Answered 10 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
