    Special Past Access DYK: Cher Ami and the Lost Battalion

    Special Past Access DYK: Cher Ami and the Lost Battalion

    World War One was full of many great stories of bravery, sacrifice, and loss. The American "Lost Battalion" was one such story. Over 600 American infantrymen were surrounded by German forces in the Argonne Forrest in October of 1918. Their own American artillery mistakenly fired on their position and the only saving option rested on the wings of the carrier pigeon named Cher Ami.

    Special Past Access DYK: Epic Fail of the Sinking of the Vasa

    Special Past Access DYK: Epic Fail of the Sinking of the Vasa

    The sinking of the Vasa in 1628 was a tragic and expensive failure by the Swede navy.
    On her maiden test run in August of that year, this top-heavy flagship took on water after opening the canon gunports and sank within minutes.
    Found nearly 330 years later, the Vasa was brought to the surface and underwent decades of conservation to be placed in its own state-of-the-art museum in Stockholm.
    This epic fail turned out to be a historic gift for millions of visitors to this amazing museum.

Really good!

It’s very interesting podcast even though I’m Czech. But come on mate, “rohlíky” are the best if you know where to buy them 😂 Try to buy them in Kvilda’s bakery.
