Welcome to our Q&A! Herein we answer loads of questions, including...Who was the best diplomacy player in the conflict? How many in Bohemia actually wanted Freddy as King? What narrative of the war is my fave? What was the story with the Ottoman-Persian wars which kept the Turks so preoccupied during the war? What impact did climate change have on the war? What would have happened if Gustavus Adolphus had lived through Lutzen? What would have happened if Richelieu had died in obscurity from pneumonia, as he nearly did, thereby missing his later career as premier of France?These q's are all here and there are more besides, so if you want some a's, you know where to go! The last four weeks have been great for bringing this show to new people, and you have all been so encouraging as I try to make WDF bigger than ever before. I have some great history friends backing this show - remember you can back this show on Patreon and get a year's subsciption for the price of 10 months, but only until October 2020! So act now, and help a podder out with his endless fees in the process. Thanksss!
