Hi Indy and crew, I love the show, and I love learning about history. Youve talked a lot about different religions during the war, and my question is this: What was the LDS/Mormon view of the war? Was there a general statement issued from the group or where they pretty quiet during the war?Posted 3 weeks ago by Aden Whipple.
Hi Indy and crew! Here's my question: were there any instances of soldiers bringing their significant others to or near the front lines, especially on extremely static sectors of trenches on the Western Front?Posted 3 weeks ago by Anonymous.
Hi guys, a massive thank you for the work you do on the show. My question is, in many WW1 cemetery’s there are many graves with the word known unto god, or unknown solider of a certain Regiments. How many unknown graves are there and what form of identification was used by all sides. Because if they can tell the Regiment there would be a good chance they can tell the person. My great grandfather is one of these men with no known grave,he was killed on the 21st march 1918 on the Somme on his wife’s nirthday.Posted 3 weeks ago by David seale.
On the western front, what was the density of (average) of artillery shells per linear mile (or other unit) per day (or other unit) on average and for offensives? Say a football field as an area measurement?Posted 3 weeks ago by Anonymous.
Battlefield reclamation, how did this take place? I can’t find any info on the subject. I read one account of a American reporter who was a vet going back to the trenches 10 years later. He found many of the trench systems still there at that time. Also had the major part of the reclamation been finish by the time WWII came along?Posted 3 weeks ago by Anonymous.
