Today, we are joined by Professor, Historian, and Author Jay Lockenour to discuss a man we talked about all the way back in Episode 1 of History's Most: Erich Ludendorff.
We discuss his post-war life, including his mental breakdown (and whether it should be considered relevant), close association (and then disassociation) with the Nazis, the creation of the Tannenberg League, how his wife impacted his political beliefs, and much more.
