What real men are made of!

Love this channel on tv! So thankful for this particular podcast! It’s like Band of Brothers and Pacific but ran across any war! These are short, concise telling of a particular war point, yet somehow include everything you need to know about the relevance of this place or plan to the war, what’s going on, and the bravery and courage that these brothers displayed!
