Welcome to episode #175.  Today we ask the question “How did Morocco cause World War 1?”  Are we crazy?  Well listen and let’s see if you agree that the seeds of World War 1 go back to the 1905 Morocco crisis.  Also, as Scott would ask, “What does this have to do with stamps?”.   Well we cover the fascinating stamp issues which arose from this and the other “dominoes” that caused World War 1.
