Hey guys, welcome to the first official episode of When Diplomacy Fails. Since it's my first, I decided to celebrate by talking about my favourite period in history: The Franco-Prussian War! It's got a fantastic amount of diplomacy inside, you'll get to hear about Bismarck owning Napoleon's nephew and about where it all went wrong for France. What's not to love? Well, my pronounciation for one. Sorry about that, I hope I didn't offend any German-sensitive ears with my ignorance... Please give it a listen and let me know what you think!
