The Great War : Thank you guys for watching and supporting us. Stay tuned for some announcements soon.

Storm SLW : “That was the Great War” that line it sounds so unnatural now...

hopekee : Old people: You can learn nothing about history from watching youtube all day The guys behind "The Great War": Hold my beer

Stiggs1 : "I'm Indy Neidell, and that WAS the Great War." That hit me right in the feels harder than I thought it would.

León Maehlum Rykkja : I regret not following the chanel on constant basis, but what I have seen and learned as been amazing. Thanks alot.

History Matters : I think it's important to take a couple of minutes to recognise just how monumental the Great War series is (was?). To spend four years of your life recording history in painstaking detail and making it easily digestible for a million people is a colossal achievement and the team here should be rightly proud of what they did. Most importantly, the team managed to do so whilst keeping the war's human face and cost at the forefront. It's a truly phenomenal undertaking and a was a wonderful journey to be a part of. Well done and thank you.

Nick Wedyke : Wow, amazing run. This channel and series are truly one of the most important parts of YouTube history and world history in general. Thank you for an amazing few years full of knowledge.

Charolastra : "Dont cry because its over, smile because it happened."

godofkings17 : *Try not to cry* *Cry a little* *Cry a lot*

Hydrogen Peroxide : I’ve been desperately trying to catch up for the past three years and finally did 5 minutes ago.

Thank you to indy, Flo, and everyone else involved with this series. And a happy birthday to Conrad

AlternateHistoryHub : For four years you guys brought us on this journey. You contributed something to Youtube nobody else could. Can't believe its over.

Bikrant50 : I watched this back in 2014-2015 in my high school history class, and recently with the news about news about the memorial, I checked back here. It’s amazing what’s been accomplished here!

FlyHigh : It really is something special. Not only the project itself but the Event it marked, the real homage those man and woman who lived The Great War deserved. Thank you for all the happy and sad moments this channel gave me. I can honestly say many of the episodes brought me to tears and put a smile on my face. I don't write this lightly, The Great War channel really did change my view of the world and as a person. I thank you for that.

Quidditch2888 : This series started when I was a Freshman in high school at 14, feels weird that it’s been a consistent part of my life now that I’m 19 and in college. Really puts it into perspective about how long the war was

Daffy Cuck : I learned so much from this channel. I apologise for not being able to donate to you guys on patreon. This series has helped me to expand my knowledge about the Great War. I salute all of you!

Mark Cotton : More than 4 years of outstanding work. Thank you for producing such an important series.

Red Mustang 1976 : I only followed this back in 2014 and some times this last year such a shame i did not watch it more. I was just to busy.

op gaming : Indiana Neidell and the crystal skull

dillon burnes : Thank you for everything. This is an amazing channel that has done a great service to this often forgotten conflict. Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others - Marcus Tullius Cicero

Gumball the Baby Triceratops : Stan lee dies 1 day after :(

Fifachamp1012 : Until 2039 guys

Dimtri Mezzawi : There is an Arabic proverb says: it is time for the knight to dismount. Big thanks to you

jockellis : Glad you are not unemployed yet. I’m 70 and both before I started kindergarten and through about second grade I and several other children were looked after while our parents worked in the home of a woman whose husband had been an American soldier in WW I. He had a withered arm from a gas attack we were told. I don’t think he worked but I remember that I never saw him when he wasn’t wearing a tie. Thank you for bringing this history to life. I hope young people will learn it and learn from it.

Neal Hyde : Bravo! A truly epic production and one that will be worthy of being viewed and reviewed for many years to come!

Chris D : Firing off your last belt, standing up, taking off your helmet, bowing to your enemy and walking away. What a way to end the war. And this video, what a way to cap a great series. Thank you Indy and the Team, you made sure we didn't forget.

cnlbenmc : All quiet on the Western Front.

Jacob : Thank you so much for this series. I watched this series from the beginning and have never left a comment I just enjoyed week in week out everything you do. I find myself in this last episode emotional reflecting on the war and all the excellent quality videos you guys released. I was wondering how I make a donation to you guys? Is it through Patreon or is there another way?

M K : And on this Day 100 Hundred Years Ago my Great Great Grand Father begins his task like, so many others to walk back to Czechoslovakia from Verdun

Sneakyone75 : Great job! I just started following this channel a few months ago and I am sad I was not around from the beginning to follow all of the weekly episodes but the ones that I was able to watch as they came out were very wonderful. Thank you for covering this often forgotten war and I look forward to more episodes in the future!

MontanaMountainMen : My Great Grandfather fought in France in WW1, US Army 27th Div. He would be if still alive 123,he fought at Ypres and helped smash the Hindenburg Line.

Julius von Brunk : I'm not sure which had a sadder ending: Blackadder Goes Forth -- or The Great War. Well, the important thing is, Indy and Flo didn't die.

Philipp Habediehre : Matthias Erzberger, who was tasked with negotiating and signing the peace treaty by Paul von Hindenburg, was assassinated in 1921 by "Organisation Consul", a far right terror group, which became later a part of the SS.

Willy : Before catching this series, I thought ww1 was just another worldwide conflict that's been part of history. Now I know that it shaped the history even today.

MdioxD : One one side, i wanted this war to stop since the beggining... One another, i would like it to last longer... So i can watch The Great War even more...

Shiv Veer Singh : I'm following you guys since you had about less than 5k subs. I don't why I'm crying. The ending quote made me cry.😢😭 Love from INDIA for INDIANA.

Anchor Bait : I find tears in my eyes. Thank you for the journey. Thank you to all the men and woman of the world who shared this experience together, you made us question ourselves and grow in ways we never knew possible.

Logan Ewart : On to World War Two, right?

Scott Bergquist : A surreal moment, cast one one hundred years forward. Print media has a lot of inches, and details, about this moment. One magazine mentioned the last American killed, right before 11 AM. He had fixed his bayonet, moved forward toward a German machine gun post. The men (in broken English) told him, "Go back, go back". But he wouldn't stop. So the Germans shot him! thanks Indy and crew ( Florian!!!) At first, almost any comment got a response from you guys, but soon the population of viewers was out of control. It was like a party, and at 8 PM, five people stand around drinking and expounding. By 11 AM, lights are dim, music punishingly loud, whoops and yelling, and a few drunken stunts. No body expounding now! But, a Great PARTY, to honor the stupidity and the unstoppable: The Great War of 1914-1918. Thank you (profusely) again!

Brooks Bartlett : Top 10 Saddest Anime Endings

Caleb Shonk : When I think of the legacy of this war, one phrase comes to mind: Cadavera vero innumera (Latin- "Truly countless bodies.") The war is now over but what was really gained? The borders have remained virtually unchanged, whole empires have completely exhausted themselves and an entire generation of young men have died. All because of "some damn fool thing in the Balkens." WW1 was the war that saw the end of every single global empire, except one. I really think that if there was one real winner of the Great War, it was the Americans. America's dominance of the globe really began in the power vacuum created by all of the world's greatest empires hurling themselves at each other. Even the British never fully recovered following the loss of the cream of British society.

Shawn Gilliland : Thank you for your incredible work, Indy and Crew! An unforgettable show about an unforgettable war - none of us will never forget.

Un Bearable : Not since the concluding episode of MASH have I been this moved by a final installment of a production.

masterxploder51 : Indy, Flo, and the rest of the Great War crew, all I can say is thank you. Thank you so much for doing this series, and inspiring people, like me, to love history with a passion. I found this channel back in early 2015 when I wanted to find an old WW1 mini-series; instead I found the greatest docu-series ever created. I am now a sophomore at Purdue University, studying to become a history teacher. You guys have become one of my biggest inspirations to pursue history, and thank you so much for your dedication and work on this series! I cannot wait to see what comes out of this channel in the future! -All Hail the new Kaiser Flo!

Ciaran 54 : Indiana Neidell, you deserve an award for the work you have done these past few years

rsca is god : Any university would kill for a professor like Indy...

V. Athanasiou : It seems like yesterday since 2014 and the centennials about the commencement of the war...

bpluma : Thank you all so much for your hard work and dedication! Since I stumbled upon this show back in January 1915, I was hooked. This completely reinvigorated my love of history and has helped me learn so much about WWI. (They don't teach much about WWI in schools in US). I don't work in education nor am I a teacher, but I would absolutely recommend this channel to anyone hoping to learn more about a fascinating time in world history. Thank you Indy & team, you guys did an incredible job!

Nathan Claypole : Like so many other people, I've never commented before but just want to now share my appreciation with you. Tears in my eyes that this has ended, it's been an ongoing part of my life since 2014, around the time my daughter was born. To see how far she has come really puts into perspective how long this war went on for... It's been quite an adventure with you all! See you again in twenty years, I hope!

Viggo Simonsen : We are just as speechless. This has been an absolutely stunning project of such a high quality. Thanks to everyone of you for your tireless effort to educate and entertain us for 4 years. I have been watching each and every regular episode every week since the beginning + a lot of the specials. This series will remain a valuable source of information on WWI on youtube for as long as it exists - and beyond. Again - thanks guys. An extraordinary feat, really. You can be proud.

Stephen Sheedy : The series greatly contributed to my understanding of World War I. Thank you!
