Young Officer Mistakenly Kills Soldier and “First World War” Ensues; The Goths Driven From Homeland

he guys go “WTF” over early “World Wars”. Q goes over the harrowing circumstances in 1754 which led a young naive Lieutenant Colonel to mistakenly start, in the woods of the Ohio Valley, what is widely regarded to be the “first world war.” A war which went on to shape the growth of the future American empire and the borders and destinies of some of the greatest nations in the world. All because a nervous 21 year-old officer made a single mistake. Mike then tells of the epic and little-known history of the Goths, who were driven out of their lands and across the continent, but later aided their former adversaries The Romans to fight a common enemy: The Huns!

When a Wrong Turn Led to 20 Million Deaths & That Time the U.S. Govt Killed Its Veterans

Q then tells of the incredible string of coincidences on the parade route in Kosovo that led to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. This was the match that lit the powder-keg that became World War I, the most brutal of the wars – with 20 million left dead.
