There are been a lot of hilarious moments in these Great Blunders in History by The History Channel (even though the vast majority of them pertain to wars and other human atrocities), but this one has to be at the top of the list where Adolf Hitler’s officers were afraid to wake him and therefore the Panzers were able to be mobilized at all.
Even though it is somewhat humorous, it’s still a very serious part of our history as the Allies position themselves to make one of the controlling and final attacks on the German military.
Again, this is a great way to learn about history through these various snapshots in time.
In this episode of Great Blunders in History, The History Channel, of which this wonderful series is based, details the “Blitzkrieg” strategy that Hitler implemented during World War II. Hitler put so much emphasis on the dive bombers, that he neglected to develop a long-range bomb attack. Much to his chagrin.
Another wonderful account of history that I really enjoyed reading.
This episode of the Greatest Blunders in History – Mussolini's Invasion of Greece, shows us once again that it's virtually impossible to involve yourself with two or three different skirmishes, without depleting your resources or distracting you from your focus. Mussolini was no different.
Once again, The History Channel, come through in a big way and depicting history and an exciting, event filled, matter-of-fact presentation that keeps you just glued to your seat throughout.
For history buffs and non-history buffs alike I highly recommend this series of Great Blunders in History by The History Channel.
Audible has changed my life! Dry , itchy eyes were destroying one of my greatest pleasures - reading. Now I am experiencing books again!
Hooray for whoever put this out in Book/Audio form! I had heard some of the individual entries, but it is truly exciting to see these short essays put together in one piece. There are wonderful glimpses of the individuals featured here. It's inspiring and encouraging to hear these short philosophies of famous and not-so-famous people.
This is something different and fascinating. Easy listening in the best possible way!
