About Real Time History

We are Real Time History
We are an independent production company from Berlin, Germany. Real Time History stands for high quality history documentaries that you won't see on television or even other places online. On our YouTube channels The Great War and Real Time History we cover the dramatic events of the early 20th and 19th century in great detail. Every month we release two detailed history documentaries featuring historic footage, detailed maps and animations - our aim is always to show these events from multiple perspectives and use eye witness accounts. For this we work together with an international team of historians. 

For 2022 we are planning to release the following projects:
Real Time History Roadmap 2022

  • January 2022: Franco-Prussian War series (completed)
  • until June 2022: Napoleon's invasion of Russia (almost completed)
  • Summer 2022: Austro-Prussian War 1866 
  • Fall 2022: Napoleon's German Campaign 1813

The Great War Roadmap 2022

On the Great War channel, in addition to the best of 1922 topics, we will do some more experiments and cover some conflicts we always wanted to cover. Most notably the Balkan Wars and the Italian-Turkish War, plus we will also revisit some 1914-1918 topics like many of you have requested.

  • Summer 2022: Brusilov Offensive, Outbreak of WW1, Irish Civil War
  • Fall 2022: Irish Civil War, Greco-Turkish War 1922, Spanish-American War

Support independent history documentaries 
For these projects to work, we need your continued support. Everything we did over the past few years has only been possible because of Crowdfunding. If you like what we do, it would mean a lot to us if you supported us here.

As a token of our gratitude you will be able to watch all our content on Patreon ad-free and usually earlier than on YouTube. Patreons will also get access to our existing WW2 documentaries 16 Days in Berlin and Rhineland 45.
