FACT OF THE DAY:
Why did the Germans lose WW1? There are lots of reasons but most historians agree a big part of the problem was the Schlieffen Plan. The plan involved going through Belgium, quickly capturing Paris and then focusing on Russia. Here is the problem. They believed that it would take 6 weeks to take down France and 6 weeks for Russia to mobilise. France was proving way tougher than Germany thought and Russia mobilised in 6 days. They also thought Britain wouldn't defend Belgium. They were wrong there too. So why did they make all these mistakes. The plan was made in 1905 that is 11 years before WW1.
Cool beans. Whilst im not from the UK I am 56% British. Kind of makes me wish I had citizenship.
I still can't believe the Kaiser managed to fvck up everything the people before him worked so hard for.
Germany would have to have had Bismarck levels of political navigation to continue their progress in a world where they won. And no, I ain't German.
I asked cos u seem to be taking this almost personally. also there r loadsof different scenarios on youtube of different ww1's. my favourite is by Holland Mapping, who you should totally check out.
To be fair, the terrible decisions by the Kaiser led to the fall of the Kaiserreich and rise of Hitler with all the bad stuff there, afterward, and inbetween. As for the Holland Mapping guy, I'll give him a look.
