Episode 20 – The Great War

November 11, 1918 – November 11, 2018

One hundred years ago today the greatest and most violent struggle the world had known was brought to its end.  More has happened in the last one hundred years then in any other century of human activity and this titanic struggle between the world’s most powerful forces determined the course it would take.

Join us as we pause and reflect and try to learn from our past.  We encourage you to learn on your own, or join us by watching The Great War, a documentary on PBS.org.  It’s a great documentary, too, we give it unqualified recommendations.

Note:  The Great War  is a six hour documentary, served up on PBS.org in three 1-hour segments.  This episode of the Secular Hubcast is drawn on our experience of Part 1 of the documentary only.  We will be watching the remainder of the documentary and continuing this discussion in future podcast episodes.

Listen to “I Didn’t Raise My Boy to Be a Soldier” in full in all it’s popping, scratching glory
