Outstanding!

This podcast encouraged and educated me. The patience and commitment of the host is astonishing and he has done a great service to all his listeners! I have listened to nearly every episode at least once and have been spellbound. I cannot thank you enough. Your references and reflexive insights put you above many other YouTube and other easily accessible educational resources. Thank you from Noa (from New Zealand)

Excellent

Found this podcast after being half way through his Second World War podcast and the original is just as good as the sequel. Presented in a interesting way with stats to keep it grounded but not boring with details. Splendidly done.
