The Great War
Portugal's participation in the First World War 1, especially the service of the Portuguese Expeditionary Corps on the Western Front, is often forgotten. And even when the troops were still fighting, the political situation back home had changed so much that the soldiers were largely forgotten.

Brazil participation at the World War I, and I think also at World War II, is even more overlooked than the one from Portugal. You could do a video about Brazil, because many people don`t know that they fought at World War I.

Its Afonso Costa, not Afonso da Costa. General José Norton de Matos first name is pronounce with a Portuguese J, the same sound as in French. You could have looked at Google translator the approximate correct pronounciation of the Portuguese names.

Portugal presence at the World War I is overlooked outside the country because it wasn´t that decisive. Portugal could have remained neutral all the conflict, but unfortunately the need to protect the Colonial Empire from Germany led the Republican government to declare war to Germany in 1916. Portugal participation certainly wouldn`t have been overlooked at all if we had entered World War II on the Allies side, because of that war`s geographical dimension. History also would have been different because our fascist regimen almost certainly would have fallen. A moron wrote in here "when Portugal isn`t overlooked?" Try the Portuguese Discoveries, when Portugal started the European Expansion, in the 15th and 16th centuries, and the Portuguese Colonial Empire history. Even the Napoleonic Wars had some important battles of the Peninsular War in Portugal.

It would be great to see the special episode about Anibal Milhais. I've read his story, and his accomplishments were amazing!

I'm a portuguese born in germany and the best job i ever had in germany, was for the british army in Mönchengladbach. Best mates i ever had.

Portugal morreu seus idiotas, perdeu independencia e maioria dos burros nem se apercebeu. Cambada de traidores. Vossa amiga UE ja tomou conta das aguas, 2022 vai o mar para bruxellas, agricultura pescas tudo controlado por eles, e muito mais. Povo Portugues esta tudo zombie e burros...

Olá, eu sou Português e o mapa Cor-de-Rosa não é um laço, mas um proposta.
Á cerca de sermos da "Entente" tem a ver com a aliança que tínhamos com os Ingleses,
E como se chama essa base naval da Alemanha em Lisboa?
Adoro o video, e espero mais video.

Hello, I'm Portuguese and the Pink map is not a tie, but a proposal.
About being of the "Entente" has to do with the alliance we had with the British,
And what is the name of this naval base of Germany in Lisbon?
I love the video, and I expect more video.

Rasputin - The Man Behind The Tsarina I WHO DID WHAT The Forgotten Ally - Portugal in WW1 I THE GREAT 1 day ago   10:02

Grigori Rasputin is as much a man as he is a legend. The mystic behind the Tsar and the Tsarina who apparently made no decision without consulting him. The healer that could perform miracles. The man who was killed for his influence in a time ripe for revolution.
