History of the Great War Podcast


History of the Great War is a history podcast that tells the story of the First World War chronologically in the form of weekly episodes.


My name is Wesley Livesay. I have always been fascinated by the period between 1914-1945. It is a period in time well covered by historians but there are always new things to discover and learn. I live in the United States, a country that does not often remember the role America played in the early decades of the 20th century.

I started this podcast to give myself the opportunity to hopefully spread the important story of the turbulent years between 1914 and 1918. While it didn't end all wars like one of its names suggests the First World War was a critical step in the events of the later 20th century.

In late 2019 I started a second podcast entitled History of the Second World War. You can find information about the podcast over at the History of the Second World War website.
