Surprise Episode 2 – The Northern Crusade

Greetings, Comrades!

While we’re preparing for wedding here, and preparing new episodes, here’s a surprise for you. It’s an episode that we did for the paid feed of the Lesser Bonapartes, about the Baltic/Northern Crusade. You know – the piece of history that we’re asked to cover but that kind of can’t find a place. It’s also very, very long. Normally, you’d have to be a supporter of the Lesser Bonapartes show, paying 10$ or more to have this, but I’m giving this one to you, because…yeah, why not. So that you’d have something to listen to, while waiting for my next episode. And no, this means I won’t be covering all of those events separately, because 4h is quite enough, really. Have fun, as I’m preparing for wedding.

And I expect a lot of questions from those who don’t read the text part of the RSS feeds.

  1. Unrelated to this episode, but I have been listening to all the episodes so far in Easter Border and they’re really good! Keep up the excellent work. I’m from India and would love it if you can provide more insight about the relationship between Soviet Union and India..

    • Hello Karthik! I definitely will look into this – as for one, they actually DID have an interesting relationship, and that got us a LOT of Bollywood movies in here. 🙂

  2. The only minor disagreement is that all the Baltic Prussians were not extermination, but many were assimilated. The Baltic Prussian Language did not total die out until the early 18th Century in the Eastern Section of East Prussia. My surname if was spelled “Preuss” originally, an meant “Prussian”. The other surnames in my grandfathers family were Lithuanian, and Salzburger Exulanten.

  3. This puzzles me:It suggests particularly that we have forgotten Dostoyevsky, who wrote in The Brothers Karamazov that the signal flaw of the upper classes is that they “want to base justice on reason alone”, not on any deeper belief system absent which everything can be rationalized, so that the will of a society to fight and survive withers away.Is he suggesting that laws shouldn’t necessarily make rational sense?
