Broadcaster Review: Military History Visualised
Created and presented by Bernhard Khast, a combined graduate of Salzburg University and long time YouTube broadcaster, Military History Visualized is the best of its class and well worth subscribing to.
If you can handle his Germanic accent (and I really like it) if you haven't listened or watched his presentations you are in for a treat. He applies research and analysis to a depth not seen enough and provided perspectives and context around many of the grand tactical questions people most often ask on WWII in particular.
This channel has data and detail presented via audio commentary and slide show visualizations which include designer graphics. Bernhard does not get in front of the camera.
He has an accompanying support channel Military History Not Visualized which includes museum visits and presentations on specific military equipment and the like where he presents physically. His broadcasting is further supported by a merchandise site and Facebook page.
I find this a marvelous resource to either watch or listen to as I model and paint away. I find him engaging, very well informed and he supports his findings with evidence. His episodes are well scripted, edited professionally and rarely looses focus like others often tend to.
I particularly appreciate his philosophy of presentations adopted from a Churchillean quote: "A good speech should be like a woman's skirt; long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest."
