    Appendix I Part 2: Tom Derrick VC

    Diver Derrick was an Australian Soldier who fought in several campaigns of the second world war including the North Africa campaign, which is featured in the game, where he was present for the Battles of Tobruk and El Alamein, discussed back in Episode 14 if I’m not mistaken. Following the North African campaign he returned to Australia, received his commission and went back on campaign in the South Pacific, participating in the New Guinea Campaign where he earned his Victoria Cross. Later he participated in the battle for Borneo where he was killed by fire from a Japanese machine gun.

The Best podcast ever (made for every WW2 history enjoyer)

This is my favorite WW2 podcast because it is made for a person just starting to learn about WW2, while also being amazing for a WW2 expert (such as me). The one problem is that he doesn’t have the best upload schedule (just look at the last upload). But this is excused seeing as he is in the US military (thank you for your service). But that is the only downside.

Great World War 2 information delivered flawlessly

Just stumbled across this podcast. Listened to the first ten episodes. I’m probably more of a US Civil war guy than WW2 but still feel I know much about the war my Dad fought in. The information is well researched and delivered flawlessly. I always feel I learn more about stuff I thought I knew everything about. Can’t recommend this podcast enough for anyone interested in full details about WW2 battles and persons of interest.

Review of the series

The initial podcasts in this series were great. The episode discussing Nasizm pre World War II was superb. However, there was a long hiatus in the podcasts, and since the return earlier this year of 2023 the episodes have not been great. The last 2 episodes on China were too long and tedious. I think Cassus Belli Guy seems to have lost his way
