Excellent WW2 podcast

Started at the beginning and still enjoying this podcast, it’s a treasure trove of stories and interviews.

Fantastic stories beautifully told

Hi mate, stumbled across your podcast whilst looking for first hand accounts of WW2.

Thank you for putting the time and effort in, you do such a wonderful job at doing justice to what was a remarkable and terrible time in history. I’m 29 and can’t imagine going through what your father and so many others went through.

Keep up the great work, thanks again.

Brent from Australia.
