    Boaz Dvir Interview Episode 6

    Boaz Dvir Interview Episode 6

    In this episode, Matt Crawford speaks with author Boaz Dvir about his book Saving Israel. This is an unbelievable story about the effort to arm the newborn state of Israel in 1948. Surrounded by 5 well equipped and hostile neighbors Israel had no rifles, no ammunition, and no planes. Faced with an international arms embargo Israel had to turn to a communist Czechoslovakia for surplus Nazi weapons to defend itself. This is truly almost impossible to believe and will leave you turning the pages!

Hazelgrove traces Knox's unbelievable journey from a Boston bookseller to an indispensable man of the American Revolution. To fight the British in Boston Washington needed artillery that was over 300 miles away in Fort Ticonderoga and he needed it fast.

    Stephen Brumwell Interview Episode 4

    Stephen Brumwell Interview Episode 4

    In this episode, Matt Crawford speaks with author Stephen Brumwell about his book Turncoat. A truly enjoyable and informative read that casts a new light on the man we think we all know, Benedict Arnold. This is one of those books that truly test your assumptions and pushes you to think. I thought I knew all I needed to about Arnold and I think I can safely assume that most people who will read this book do as well. Brumwell has proven me wrong and will for you as well. Great read!

We all think we know the story of the Titanic but Russell finds a way to evade the immense shadow cast by the Titanic and focus on what matters most, the people aboard. An in-depth tale about the climate of the era, the culture and the hopes and dreams of those aboard. Painstakingly researched and eloquently written this is simply a must-read. Well done.

    David Head Interview Episode 2

    David Head Interview Episode 2

    In this episode, Matt Crawford speaks to educator and author David Head about his book A Crisis of Peace. This book focuses in on the time between the British surrender at Yorktown and the signing of the Treaty of Paris. What happened between those two dates could have torn this fledgling country asunder and led to the Newburgh Conspiracy, a possible military uprising in the making. A great read and quite funny at times thanks to David Head's ease of prose and humor. Enjoy!
