Love the work you guys are doing. I have read that Ignacy Paderewski met with President Wilson and convinced him to include Polish Independence in the 14 Points. Some accounts claim that in exchange, Paderewski helped deliver the Polish vote in the 1918 election. Do you have any information on this? Have you done, or are you planning to do, a special episode on Paderewski and his role in securing independence for a post-WWI Poland.Posted 5 months ago by Rob Zrabkowski.
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 5 months ago by Yote.
