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.
The History Channel series of Great Blunders in History takes us on an interesting look back during World War I in which Russia underwent a Civil War in which over 10 million people were killed.
Obviously, there was a lot of chaos during that time, which led up to World War I…. well, you know the rest of the story!
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.
