Hello Indy, here is another quetstion. How did the Great War affect fine arts? Surely, some artists may have been drafted and perished on the battlegrounds but for those who survived and those who did not join the fight, how did the war influence their art?

Hello Indy, were there during the Great War any attempts by non-participant countries to mediate for in an attempt to end hostilities? Which countries did so, how did they try to mediate and why did they fail? What was the reaction of the major powers to such mediation attempts? What was the role of diplomacy in the Great War? Thanks, Stelios from CyprusPosted 10 months ago by Stelios Orphanides.
Salutations, and thanks! In Week 33, you mention a British study that concluded that shrapnel shells were the most effective at cutting barbed wire, but you regularly state in later episodes that high explosive shells are the most effective at this task. Was this study later discredited, or erroneous? When was it discovered/ decided that high explosive shells were more effective in dealing with wire obstacles?Posted 10 months ago by Jefferson Hezekiah Apple.
