It may be a surprise to many, but Mexico played an important role in World War I. Consumed by its civil war, the oil rich nation became a key strategic battleground for Germany. When German agents enticed Pancho Villa to attack the United States in 1916, the massive US response precipitated the eventual defeat of German forces in Europe. As outlandish as it sounds, Germany lost World War I in the dusty streets of Columbus, New Mexico. Heribert von Feilitzsch will present this little known history in a one hour tour de force of spy stories, revolution and war.
