Hi Indy and team Great War! Have heard stories of Russian and German troops signing an armistice to deal with super-packs of wolves that were preying on troops on both sides. Is this true and how much in the way of recorded material do we have on this event? Loving the show and as soon asmy next paycheck arrives, I'm adding you to my Patreon account.Answered 5 months ago.

Great show, I have a question. When troops went over the top, ho did they typically deal with their OWN barbwire directly in front of their trenches? Would love to hear your thoughts on this. Keep up the great work.Answered 5 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
Phenomenal work you guys are doing, and thanks for letting us contribure to what will be a great four years (and beyond)! Here are my questions for ya: What did the Western Front look like at its nothern extreme, along the European coast? Was there an early version of 'Fortress Europe' which spiked the seashore; did the navy support non-amphibious ground forces at all; did armies ever try to flank each other by going around the end of the line via the sea?Answered 5 months ago.

I feel like you should call lithuanian cities like they are actually called in English instead of Polish (Vilnius and Kaunas instead of Wilno and Kovno). I understand that most historical sources refer to it that way but that's because the lithuanian culture was so obscure. I think it'd be a lot more respectful to refer to the aforementioned cities as Vilnius and Kaunas.Answered 5 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
What happened after an enemy trench was captured, how would this affect the shape of the frontline, and what advantages were gained other than maybe a few hundred yards of land? I'm mostly asking about the western front.Answered 5 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
Hi Indy, really enjoy the show and am finally putting my money where my mouth is! Being interested in WW1 aviation, we heard about the war in the skies over the western front, but were there any major aeriall engagements elsewhere during the war? EG Eastern Front, Ottoman Empire? Keep up the good work!Answered 5 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
