    Those numbers are staggering. Would definitely love more videos like this. This series and point in history is a once in a lifetime event so I'm game for learning everything I can.

  13. Has there been an episode about the british raj and it's role in the great war ? I mean the manpower it provided for the british empire and it's war on the european and middle eastern front. Why would young men from a different continent answer the call to arms ? What did the british gouvernment promise the citizen of the raj ? I know you already talked about the actions of indian troops in mesopotamia, but a more in-depth answer would be appreciated.

    No wonder America became the richest country in the world during WWI by supplying both sides.

    I love this, war is costly not only in lives but in material.

  18. Greg Shane says:

    This is an excellent illustration of the destructive effects of war on an economy. You take all the young men out of productive efforts (like farming and manufacturing) and put them on the front. Everyone else must work harder to replace the lost labor and supply the soldiers with food and arms. Consumer goods can no longer be produced so the quality of life goes down. And many soldiers are killed, meaning their productive capacity is lost forever. The badly wounded must be cared for by others, possibly forever, in addition to losing their productive capacity.

    But you still hear fools, even today, say that war is an economic stimulant, and that WWII lifted the US out of depression. WWII simply replaced the poverty of not working with the poverty of working hard and not being able to buy anything you want, since everything that was produced was for the war effort.
