Who are you?

My name is Bernhard Kast, better known as Military History Visualized for the YouTube channel I started in early 2016. I have a Master of Arts in History and a Master of Science in Computer Science both from the University of Salzburg, Austria.

What do you do?

With my Channels Military History Visualized and Military History NOT Visualized (2018) I try to  provide a better understanding of Military History and Warfare. For this I take a look at academic literature, interview experts, look at primary sources or get my hands on equipment if necessary. For me it is mainly about understanding and then distributing this knowledge to my audience. Additionally, I quote heavily from my various sources and references, which are always linked in the description and the quotes note also the page, so you can actually track down the sources yourself if you don't trust me.

What do you do with the support?

If you like what I do, please support me, note that every dollar helps. I will invest the money in books, software, primary sources, field trips, camera equipment, hardware and other ways to improve the quality of my videos.

Below you can see a small glimpse at the various improvements that happened over time without the support from my Patreons this would not have been possible.

Goals
$1,914 of $3,000 per month
Secured Base: With this amount of money I can continue the channel even without YouTube Ads income, which is quite unstable and unpredictable. (Note: around 50 % of my income is spent on taxes & social security, because Austria has very high rates here.)
