John Notes:
I originally conceived this video as a shorter video mostly focusing on Poitrine but outlining the details regarding the other series and a few fun facts I had known of. As I researched I found more and more information that lead to me buying several books/magazines to get the biggest and clearest picture possible turning this into my largest video to date (and also my most expensive).
