Hello Indy and Crew, great videos recently (as always haha). Question for Out of the Trenches: were the British frowned upon by their partners (and later allies) such as France for their actions during the 2nd Boer War? I know here in the Netherlands we were not happy with their actions. Thanks in advance!Posted 8 months ago by Anonymous.
According to G.J. Meyers in "A World Undone", Ludendorff didn't particularly want nor expect Hutiers army in the south to break through the Entente's lines. In fact, he both wanted and expected such a breakthrough to occur in the northenmost sector. With that in mind, why oh why... did he post Bruhmüller with his famous Feuerwalze-bombardment with Hutier in the south?Posted 8 months ago by Yote.
Hi Indy! I've been reading a comic set in WW1 called Charley's War. In this comic, a german plane once bombarded enemy trenches with steel arrows. Also, an german platoon mounted machineguns on the backs of their strongest soldiers, using them as mobile tripods during their assault. That last one sounds particularly fictious, but the author claims both are based on real events. Could you tell us if there is any truth to them, please?Posted 8 months ago by Yote.
