History Goes On

History of the Great War

Wesley Livesay


History of the Great War is a weekly podcast that covers the First World War that occurred from 1914 and 1918 in roughly chronological order. It covers events from the borders of France in the blistering heat of 1914, to the shores of Gallipoli, to the banks of Somme, to the final knockout attempt by the German army in the spring of 1918.


Wesley Livesay started the History of the Great War podcast in 2014 as a way of engaging with his love of history. After over five years he has now moved onto a new project, seeking to continue the story into the interwar year, and then onto the Second World War.
