Hi Indy and crew. I've been recently rewatching your videos on the Gallipoli campaign and the question I came up with is just why didn't the allies re open the Gallipoli campaign in say like late 1917 or early 1918 when the Ottomans were becoming heavily weakened and when the British and French could've gotten more support from Greece, Italy and other Balkan allies fighting in greece? I'd like to know since I'm from New Zealand. I love your work and merchandise please keep up the good workPosted 2 weeks ago by Troller S Nx7 xb1.
Hey Indy, I am a big fan of your show and I have also a question: It seems to be quite narrow in these trenches. How did the soldiers go to toilet? I cannot see any space for that. How did they handle it?Posted 2 weeks ago by Anonymous.
Hello indy and team! Maurice from California here, I am a budding tank historian I pretty much know most of the history regarding their origins but specifically I wanted to know what type of protection did tankers utilize upon their entrance and how much did it change by the end of the war, to my knowledge I remember learning they wore some type of chainmail? Sorry for the long question and thanks you guys are awesome, love all that you do to keep this momentous event in history relevant and alivePosted 2 weeks ago by Anonymous.
I've got a question you can have some advance time to research, as it takes (took) place on 23 April 1918, or roughly two months from now in TGW time. BTW, don't bother trying to pronounce my name. Even Indy, being a resident of Sweden, will likely butcher it; he's handicapped by first being an American. ========== Indy and Crew: I was recently reminded of the Zeebrugge Raid. FFI, see URL: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeebrugge_Raid and URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUS9G-c9OIc I've heard references to how the Intrepid and Iphigenia were sunk in the wrong place, but I have NOT seen any reference to where the correct location should have been and/or why the ships commanders did not sink the ships at said correct location(s). Please elaborate. Keep up the good work, LP Long time watcher, first time poster -- ========== Note: I deal better with either SMS or E-mail messages, and have arranged for my cell phone carrier to turn OFF my VoiceMail. ========== I'm looking out for the classes of 2025 & 2028... My favorite "West Wing" quote (Ep. 1-18): Sam Seaborn: "Mallory, education is the silver bullet. Education is everything. We don't need little changes, we need gigantic, monumental changes. Schools should be palaces. The competition for the best teachers should be fierce. They should be making six-figure salaries. Schools should be incredibly expensive for government and absolutely free of charge to its citizens, just like national defense. That's my position. I just haven't figured out how to do it yet." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hG-V3k_Xl2s ==========Posted 2 weeks ago by Anonymous.
