Ch. 30: Post WWII Era and the Cold War

After WWII, Western Europe was in ruins. The nations of this devastated continent had crumbling economies, turbulent political reshuffling, and changing national identities. However, through a new series of alliances (and a little help from the US), these countries bounced back from the brink and became the nations we recognize today. We will also talk about that charming period of American and Soviet militarization known as the Cold War. We will discuss how Bob Dylan, the Beatles, and popular culture helped create a passionate (in the "let's riot" kind of way) youth movement. And finally, we will talk about the most badass of French badasses: Charles De Gaulle. In this episode I am also joined by Kyle Sheridan, a good friend of mine. Kyle is a gentleman and a scholar and kindly offered to assist me on this, the second to the last Podcast in Hank's History Hour. I hope you enjoy it, and good luck on your tests!

Ch. 30: Post WWII Era and the Cold War

Ch. 29 WWII and the Rise of the Dictators

In this Podcast, we will discuss some of the vilest, most despicable, and most influential men of the 20th century:Mussolini, the would-be emperor of a revitalized Rome who was rumored to be afraid of cats.Stalin, the former seminary student who would purge and “disappear” as many as 20 million of his own people.Hitler, probably the most well-known dictator of all time, and a man who probably suffered from Parkinson’s Disease, syphilis, or both while he lead his country to ruin.

Ch. 29 WWII and the Rise of the Dictators

Ch. 28 Age of Anxiety

After WWI, all of Europe was, for lack of a better phrase, freaking out. Paranoid, sneaky, and deceitful, the European leaders had their own agendas to make their country the top dog. Fortunately, there was great literature and some great (and some stupid) art to save the masses from the thoroughly depressing reality.

Ch. 28 Age of Anxiety

The Russian Revolution

Ah, the Russian Revolution. The Russian people get a bit of freedom and democracy after centuries of toil under the czars, only to lose that freedom to another near-century of toil under the Bolsheviks. You will hear about Rasputin, one of the weirdest and creepiest men in Russian history (and that’s saying something), the fall of the czars, and the rise of Lenin and communism.I highly suggest you check out the song “Rasputin” by Boney M. It is basically a 70’s disco song about what a pimp Rasputin was, and it is hilarious.

WWI - The End of a Shaky Peace in Europe

So we finally come to it: the war to end all wars. Well, not really. We still have WWII, the Cold War, the Bosnian Conflict, etc. However, WWI may take the cake for the most brutal conflict of the century. A combination of new technology (including the dreaded gas artillery shells), stagnant fronts, and intense nationalism made WWI one of the bloodiest conflicts in history. At the Battle of the Somme alone over 1,000,000 men lost their lives. You will hear all about this new kind of warfare, the fatal wrong turn that ignited the conflict, and why Germany was pissed off and desperate enough twenty years later to throw their support behind a crazed Austrian painter named Adolf Hitler.

WWI - The End of a Shaky Peace in Europe

ch. 26 Imperialism

Hey, I know this is not in the right order, but I wanted to try to catch up to everyone. I will probably go back and do the missing 2 after I finish with the rest. So, this is imperialism, a time when European nations colonized the rest of the world and didn’t care what cultures they destroyed to accomplish their goals. You will hear about the massacre at Khartoum, the cruel King Leopold, and the Boxer Rebellion.

Ch. 22 Industrialization

Ch. 20 Agricultural Revolution

The most boring (and thankfully shortest) chapter. It is only about 15-20 minutes, so just push through it. Industrial Revolution is slightly more interesting. I promise.

Chapter 19C Napoleon!

The last part of Ch. 19. Finally. The subject is Napoleon, a man whose rise and fall was so impressive that he may be one of the most interesting people in history. You will hear about how Napoleon seized power, how he maintained and expanded it, and how he eventually lost it in one of the greatest military blunders of all time.
