Hello Indy and the Great War team! I was wondering about the service of Billy Mitchell during the First World War. I know he was a major proponent of air power during the interwar years but not much about his earlier service. Keep making great videos!Posted 9 months ago by BlackOut1962.
While I was reading Poilu (by louis Barthas) Barthas talks about Russian baths in France and seeing Russian troops in the Champagne area of France. how many troops did the Russian Government send to France? And what other kind of aid did Russia send to France . Did France send aid to Russia? Thx for the amazing show, keep up the good work. Give flo and the rest of the crew a raise.

Hi Indy, I'm completely captivated by the show you and your team produce. A brilliant week-by-week look at the tragedy of such a modern conflict. Was wondering if you ever explored the "fudging" of the numbers as to respective armies' actual artillery and munitions? For example, read on paper the French boasted an enormous number of field pieces, but in reality was heavily exaggerated. Again, thanks for an amazing channel. I've got many of my compatriots to start following you as well. Awesome work.Posted 9 months ago by Anonymous.
In Australia we learn about John Simpson, a stretcher bearer at Gallipoli, and the story of him and his donkey. What role did stretcher bearers play in the Great War? Simpson in considered an ANZAC legend and I would be interested to learn more about him and to know if other nations had similar figures.Posted 9 months ago by Anonymous.
