Dear Friends: This week on Canto Talk, I thought I might combine three of my favorite things….Halloween, chatting with Silvio Canto Jr., and discussing history with friend and Deadliest Blogger Barry Jacobsen!
Click HERE for the podcast on Tuesday, Oct. 29th (live show at 7 pm PST/9 pm CT/10 pm EST…and podcast after).
The topic, appropriate enough for the season, is History’s Deadliest Battle Disasters…so lots of blood and chaos, appropriate to October 31. Barry has polled the Facebook Military History Page, and debate and dialog has been going on for the better portion of a week.
Here is a glimpse of great military disasters that made the cut…so to speak:
Death in the snow, death in the mud, death in the forest: The Greatest Military Disasters in History, as agreed by contributors at Military History Page’s! Failure of leadership, hubris, and contempt for their enemies caused disaster and massive loss of life in every case; a lesson important to remember today.
So, tune in and find out more about these devastating upsets that changed the course of history.
