WW1 podcasts Login/Join

For anyone interested, I found the Battle of Verdun and Battles of the First World War podcasts and so far I recommend them.

I appreciate them as they are a good account of the actual fighting and not just an overview. Its reasonably objective and doesnt get trapped in some of the more over the top "OH THE HUMANITY" that I've found in some other podcasts and youtube videos. (Not that thats not a thing but theres some that get bogged down in it).

I also have liked the Dan Carlin Hardcore History podcast like Blueprint for Armageddon. If you are looking for something to listen to and like WW1, or want to know more, I think you'll be pretty happy. Also if you have some good ones to check out please list them.

I also liked the Dan Carlin series on the war. Having heard those I’d like to find others as well.

Thanks for the heads up. A few years back, I spent a few days exploring Verdun and the surrounding areas. It was amazing and haunting. There are trenches still visible, the shell craters are still visible although over grown, anbandoned forts in the woods, and warnings are posted to stay out of the craters and low areas because some of them still hold gas from the war and it is still viable all these decades later.

Next time I'm over there I definitely want to make the trip. I imagine theres so much to see if we just do a battlefields of Europe trip. I know atleast three of my group would love it.

If you haven't heard them already, Dan has a fairly extensive back catalogue of Hardcore History shows. Only his latest dozen or so shows are free. To get the 49 older shows, you pay $70, which works out to ~$1.43 per show. Well worth the money.

Aha, got it. I was going to say, I don't think they had podcasts in WWI...
