Well known historian and author Phil Tomaselli talks about how events on the Russian Front intimately influenced strategy in the West. In 1914 the early Russian advance into East Prussia pulled crucial German units out of Belgium. In 1915 they fought a retreat across Poland and their 1916 offensive helped save Verdun. The 1917 revolution freed German troops for their 1918 offensives in France, but thousands of British troops were still fighting in Russia in late 1919. A fascinating talk, not to be missed
