Brazil in World War 1 - The South American Ally I THE GREAT WAR Special

1 Share
From: TheGreatWar
Duration: 06:34

Though joining the war later than most, Brazil was the only South American nation to play an active role, albeit a brief one. After initially declaring neutrality in August 1914, a series of sunken ships and dead Brazilians on behalf of the Germans’ submarines forced Brazil’s hand, as anti-German sentiment in the country rose during the first three years of the war. With newly acquired ships, Brazil was ready to join the war as a naval power. Her involvement may not have lasted long, but it did earn Brazil a seat at the table during the Versailles peace conference.

The Edge of the Abyss - Mountain Warfare On The Italian Front I THE GREAT WAR Special

1 Share
From: TheGreatWar
Duration: 09:00

The mountains along the Italian front made for one of the most brutal and unforgiving battlefields of the World War 1, and the soldiers who fought here were tougher and more resilient than most. The Italian Alpini and the Austro-Hungarian Alpenjäger and Kaiserschützen who fought in the Dolomites waged different versions of mountain warfare, but both were subject to the harsh conditions of the peaks.

Between Gulasch Barons and Defending Neutrality - Denmark in WW1 I THE GREAT WAR Special

1 Share
From: TheGreatWar
Duration: 07:23

Denmark, Germany's northern neighbour, declared neutrality when World War 1 broke out. But after the defeat against Germany in the 19th century, they were still worried and readied their defences. At the same time Germany's hunger for supplies created a new rich elite which were called Gulasch Barons. 30,000 Danes also fought for Germany since they lived in a territory previously belonging to Denmark.

The Merchant of Death - Basil Zaharoff I WHO DID WHAT IN WW1?

1 Share
From: TheGreatWar
Duration: 10:13

For arms dealers like Basil Zaharoff, the late 19th and early 20th century was a time of never ending business opportunities, the great European powers modernised their armies drastically and conflicts like the Russo-Japanese War or the Balkan Wars meant that weapons of all kinds were always in demand. But no other man knew how to influence and profit from the waring nations like "The Merchant of Death" - Basil Zaharoff.
