New Wars and Revolutions - Demobilisation I THE GREAT WAR January 1919 5
UCUcyEsEjhPEDf69RRVhRh4A

In our first new episode, our host Jesse takes a look at the German Revolution of 1918/1919 and how the Spartacists under Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg tried to take power. We also take a look at the new conflicts that emerge right after the supposed "war to end all wars" and explain how the massive armies of the great powers were demobilized.

WE'RE BACK! What did you think about our first new episode with a brand new concept and, of course, a brand new host? We're glad you're on this new journey with us and we hope you enjoyed our first step together in a new direction. If you missed our coverage of the Paris Peace Conference, you will just need to wait a little longer till our next episode.

We will be much more diligent about our sources and sourcing from now on. You can usually find sources for certain statements on screen or in the subtitles as well as all sources used for an episode in the video description

Four and a half years of war have taken a toll on Indy. He doesn't even look the same. 🤣🤣🤣

While I don't think Jesse is as charismatic as Indy, he has a very professional quality to him in place of it. It might be because Indy's background is as an entertainer when it comes to being in front of the camera, so their presentation is different. I think it's a great fit for the documentary style of the channel, and it also is respectful of Indy by echoing your (Flo's) previous statement of not trying to replace him. Even as a first episode, this definitely already is fulfilling the promise of quality and depth with excellent narration. Great work all around.
