Adrian Carton de Wiart | WWI’s Most Unstoppable Soldier – YouTube Video Weird History – Weirdness Wednesdays May 20, 2020

I saw this on YouTube today – Adrian Carton de Wiart | WWI’s Most Unstoppable Soldier – YouTube Video Weird History – Weirdness Wednesdays May 20, 2020: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsshOczK9oY (about 11:43 minutes long).

Word of caution, the video may be a bit graphic for those who are not familiar with his story. He had 8 war injuries and one non-war injury. Interesting story and I am surprised he lived as long as he did.

From the YouTube blurb:

Bold, brash, and just a little bit bonkers, Adrian Carton de Wiart was heralded as the “unkillable soldier” for good reason: Nothing slowed him down. As a veteran of some of the 20th century’s deadliest conflicts, Carton de Wiart endured everything from serious head wounds to missing limbs but never seemed to consider the immense costs of war.

Decided this was a good choice for this week’s Weirdness Wednesdays post.

Here’s the Wikipedia article on him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adrian_Carton_de_Wiart
