Well researched and delivered.

Highly Recommended

The quantity and depth of the episodes is very impressive, especialy for a one-man passion project. The production quality isn’t the highest, but that really doesn’t matter if you’re here for the history. If you’re interested in World War I, even if you have some basic background knowledge, you should listen to this podcast.
