Khan Academy videos of interest
I should point out that a lot of good stuff has been added to the world history category since last I visited that part of the site – especially stuff about World War 1.
Some videos from the site:
Some related numbers from wikipedia (Khan also briefly covers this aspect in another video):
“The Serbian Army declined severely towards the end of the war, falling from about 420,000 at its peak to about 100,000 at the moment of liberation. The Kingdom of Serbia lost 1,100,000 inhabitants during the war (both army and civilian losses), which represented over 27% of its overall population and 60% of its male population. According to the Yugoslav government in 1924: Serbia lost 265,164 soldiers, or 25% of all mobilized people. By comparison, France lost 16.8%, Germany 15.4%, Russia 11.5%, and Italy 10.3%.”
There are huge error bars around these numbers, but that World War 1 was ‘a bloody affair’ for Serbia probably doesn’t even begin to cover it…
I’ve put the rest below the fold.
