This episode jumps all around the world as we check back in with the Eastern Front as the German and Russian armies meet at the Battle of the Vistula River. We then begin our world wide tour with a look at how the colonies of Britain, France, and Germany were taking part in the war. We end this week by finding out how exactly a division of British troops from the Royal Navy ended up alongside the Belgians in Antwerp.
As I mention at the end of this episode, I would appreciate it if you could take a few moments of your time and check out my Extra Life campaign over on Extra-Life.org
