Episode 38 - Task Force Hogan by Author William R. Hogan Ernie Pyle WWII Museum Podcast

    • History

In this episode, I spoke with author William R. Hogan about his book "Task Force Hogan: The World War II Tank Battalion That Spearheaded the Liberation of Europe". A fourth-generation soldier tells the story of his father’s tank battalion, the “Spearhead,” that selflessly led the charge on the front lines from Normandy into Germany—against impossible odds, technologically superior weaponry, and a fanatical enemy on its home turf—and the heroes whose sacrifice won World War II.
