Breathing life into a dead Prussian

Coming late to the Prussian party I found myself steaming through the first 25 eps in about 2 weeks. Educational and informative absolutely but more important they are engaging, inclusive and have a feel of friends chatting over a beer or coffee. Mick's podcasts have opened up a whole new world that's certainly got me thinking in a much broader sense... I even know who Clausewitz is!!
