This podcast is delivered with gusto and enthusiasm which keeps listeners engaged. Primary sources are used where available and plenty of metaphors and examples are drawn from real life to contrast with the horrors faced on the battlefield.
It’s always a good day when there is a new battle cast episode out. I highly recommend their Stalingrad episodes!
1,000,000+ Soviet dead and you two dorks seem to think it’s funny! Shame on you both.
