DR NICHOLAS MURRAY: THE EVOLUTION OF WARFARE TO 1914

Dr Nicholas Murray's Presentation at the US National World War One Museum and Memorial, July 13, 2015
 
I've been doing a bit of travel lately, so not much material to report as far as hobby/gaming. However, I thought I'd share this excellent presentation on the evolution of warfare to 1914 by Dr Nicholas Murray (the entire presentation runs just over an hour). Dr Murray's references to the wars in the 50 years leading up to the Great War should provide insights for anyone with an interest in the post-Napoleonic, Pre-Great War era. I found it to be an excellent mix of overview and analysis, delivering clear points about multiple levels, from industrial capacity to operational challenges.  Well worth the time, if you have it (sleep is over-rated). 

This video comes from a gold mine of resources that I've recently come across (and which has been sucking up much of my time): the US World War One Memorial and Museum website, specifically its Youtube Channel where all the presentations given at its symposia are availble, plus other content.  So whether or not you find Dr. Nicholas of interest, I think you might find something of use among these other materials. Warning: investigate at your own risk: it could be habit forming.
 Excelsior!

    1. At work? Now there's an idea! I'll probably try to stream one while painting to see if I can get something out if it without following the visuals (even though they usually are basic slides).

  4. Ok, I finally got around to watching it and it’s pretty good. He can be a little slow to make a point but well worth an hour. πŸ˜€
