Im Indy Neidell And This Is Out

of the trenches where I sit here in my chair of Wisdom and answer all your questions about the First World War, and you can now ask those questions at our official out of the trenches website, which is out of the trenches dot the great war dot UK Jeffrey Smith asks Hello Indy I was hoping you could answer a question that I’ve been wanting to ask. Since 2016. You stated that the use of poison gas was banned by The Hague, but the German Army seemed very quick to use it early in the war I was wondering if this was widely supported by the military leaders or even the Kaiser himself or if the use of gas was very controversial in the German command keep up the great work well. The use of poison gas in January 1915 at Bali. Mauled by the Germans was quickly condemned by the Antón Powers, claiming it to be an obvious violation of the Hague treaty.

The Germans Argued That The Treaty

only banned the firing of chemical shells. This meant that using gas projectors allowing the deadly gas to be carried by the wind was not technically a war crime at least not in the eyes of the Germans. Of course, once the Germans had used it, the floodgates were opened so to speak and the Allies didn’t take long to start using it themselves despite heavily criticizing the Germans for using it in their war propaganda. In fact, though many people believed it was the Germans who first use chemical weapons. This is not true.

They Were The First To Use A Deadly

gas yes, but the French were actually the first to use chemical weapons using tear gas grenades already in. August 1914, though with almost no effect as the gas wasn’t even detected by the Germans in truth. There was some hesitancy and disagreement over the use of chemical weapons among the German High Command. However, after it was used to devastating effect on April 22nd 1915. Most of these doubts came to an end.

Now.

This doesn’t mean that everybody was happy with its usage. For example, in a letter written by Major Karl von Singla. He describes Chlorine gas as very effective before going on to say this is a horrible weapon. Steamboat Willie asks I know that Billy Bishop and Herman Goering survived the war, while Georgina, Mayor Manfred von Richthofen and Max Immelman did not did any other of the well-known flying aces survived and could you please Tell us, which was the top surviving ace of the war.

Sure American Flying Ace Eddie Rickenbacker

survived. war claiming 26 aerial victories in the short time the UK were involved in the conflict. This set the American record Australian fighter pilot Arthur Henry Cobby, known as Harry. He also managed to survive the war despite being in active service for under a year. He claimed 29 victories, ranking him third behind Roderick Stanley Dallas and Robert Alexander Little who both died in 1918 Godwin Vaughn Bru Malsky was Austriahungary‘s leading fighter ace being officially credited with 35 air victories and a further eight unn confirmed as they fell behind allied lines.

He Lived To The Ripe Old Age

of 46, dying in a plane crash in 1936 instructing an Austrian student in the Netherlands. The highest-scoring German fighter pilot to survive the war was Ernst Udet. He was second only to Richthofen as a German Ace he scored 62 confirmed victories and would go on to be. of equipment for the Luftwaffe during the Second World War. However, this role would prove to be too much for who debt as after trying to warn Hitler about the dangers of engaging Russia in the war, he suffered a mental breakdown which was further exacerbated by his drug dependency, which was orchestrated by fellow fighter pilot Hermann Goering.

This Eventually Led To Odette Taking

his own life in 1941 Padraig Lee. He writes I’ve heard about Sir Roger Casement attempts to form an Irish battalion in the German Army out of IrishNK] do we have any information on it did they fight in any battles how are they treated post-war sound love The show I like that sound love the show nice ending and we’ve talked about Kaseman. In the regular episodes sure Sir Roger Casement did indeed attempt to recruit an Irish Brigade from more than 2,000. Irish UK that were captured early on in the war after successfully negotiating a declaration by Germany, which essentially stated that should the Germans ever land on the shores of Ireland. It would not be as an invading force, but as an ally to Irish Analysts Casement then signed an agreement in Berlin in December 1914, which allowed him to recruit.

These Uk.

However, only 52 of them volunteered for the brigade and they received no machine-gun training. Despite what the Germans promised the reason so few men volunteered was likely because they knew if Britain won the war, then the act of volunteering for this Irish Brigade would be punishable by the death penalty for being traitors. Casements plan was unsuccessful in April 1916. Germany also offered the IRish 20,000 Moyson Nagant 1891 rifles, 10 machine guns and ammunition, but no German officers for casement.

This Was A Disappointment.

He’d hoped for many more guns and some military expertise. The guns never made it to Ireland as the ship carrying them was intercepted by the Royal. Navy Casement himself was captured days before the Easter uprising. His trial, though was not straightforward not for the prosecution since his crimes had been carried out in Germany and the Treason Act of 1351 seemed to only apply to activities carried out on British soil.

However, The Court Decided That A Comma

should exist in the unpunctual original Norman French text, which changed the meaning enough to allow casements Prosecution. Casement himself wrote he was to be hanged on a comma. He was hanged at Pentonville prison on August 3rd 1916. Cody Bain asks could breweries in Europe operate during the food shortage. The grain used to make beer is also used to make bread while the citizenry of countries at war.

With The Citizenry At Countries Of War

starving, how can they justify? Brewing was beer no longer produced or did the price of beer increase and the amount of food decrease what happened to Oktoberfest. The beer situation during the First World War differed from country to country in 1915 in Britain, the then Chancellor of the Exchequer. Soon-to-be Prime Minister David Lloyd George gave a speech in Bangor, North Wales. In this speech he proclaimed that drink is doing us more damage in the war than all the German submarines put together that was clearly hyperbolic. The Lloyd-george was referring to the lure of drink as he put it and its effects on workmen in armament factories, where he claimed efficiency was significantly lessened by the desire to have a pint or two.

This Led To The Establishment Of The

The prices of pints doubled since beer was heavily taxed and it became illegal to buy a whole round King George the fifth inspired by Lloyd George’s speech pledged to remain sober for the duration of the war and urged other noblemen to do the same however, as far as I’m aware only the Duke of Portland actually responded to this call to sobriety on the front. However, men were treated to and treated with rum rum was administered for everything from from Shellshock to Spanish Flu and was given as a daily ration for men in the trenches. When the men went over the top most commanders issued them with a double ration.

Despite The Fact That Medical Research Had

already proven even then that it reduced shooting. accuracy and that’s not surprising though given how potent army rum was at the time. Some of it was as strong as 80%. In theory, drunkenness in the trenches was punishable by death and practiced most officers up to the rank of general turned a blind eye to it as getting drunk was part of the recovery process for returning to the trenches. The beer situation in the German army was a bit more complex given the regional nature of its units.

Like Units From Bavaria Were Much

more likely to be given beer as part of their daily ration. However, as you say in your question. There was indeed a food shortage in Germany thanks to the British naval blockade, which put a strain on the alcohol industry and led to shortages and alcohol. Most soldiers received one of the following in their rations half a litre of beer.

A Quarter Of A Litre Of Wine

or 125 milliliters of schnapps, German Soldier and Arthur Arnold Spike claimed that it was possible to fight a war without women without ammunition even without strong points, but not without tobacco and not at all without alcohol, but as the war dragged on things like potatoes and barley were needed for food much more than for alcohol, so that the men’s rations of booze became few and far between Oktoberfest, which you asked about was cancelled during the First World War as well as in some other Wars. Unlike in Germany, French breweries actually increased production of beer during the war to cope with the demand of the British most breweries did water down their beers, which was an act approved by officers as it would reduce drunkenness. A lot of alcohol selling establishments also popped up behind the front lines during. the war and there was even one in a tunnel beneath enemy lines.
