Great!

Nice informative. Ray talks about this subject with passion.

Trollbindande

En episk beskrivning av händelserna inför och under WWII. Detaljrikedomen i beskrivningen av vissa händelser är häpnadsväckande. Jag har lyssnat igenom hela serien och är framme vid avsnitt 257 ”The fall of Wake Island” året är 1941 (ger en liten bild av detaljrikedomen). Ser fram emot nästa 700 poddcasts:)

Favoriterna är slaget om Storbritannien, Winston Churchills biografi samt Pearl Harbour!
