Hi guys! Greetings from Canada! Regarding the battle of the Somme, as I understand that the point was to make a hole in the German lines that troops could pour into causing the 'break through'. I understand this was supposed to involve multiple divisions worth of cavalry. How (or did they?) plan to get thousands of horse through the few kilometers of muds of no-mans land and the 2 sides' forward trench networks? Thanks for making such a great show.Answered 5 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
Hello Indy and the whole Great War team. We often hear about prisoner numbers in the thousands or tens of thousands. How did the forces secure those large numbers of prisoners and transports them to POW camps without weakening their front-line forces? How many prisoners would there typically be per soldier escorting them?Answered 5 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
