Episode 35: World War I-1917-Exhaustion and Demoralization
< 1 day ago
Of all the crazy years during the Great War, 1917 was probably the most eventful. The Russian Revolution, Unrestricted Submarine Warfare, the Zimmerman Telegram, Woodrow Wilson and the United States entering the war, the Nivelle Offensive, and Passchendaele are just some of the momentous events. It can be difficult to make sense of it all without an understanding of one of the key themes of 1917- the increasingly demoralizing impact of World War I on soldiers, civilians, and governments.
