Finally - an entertaining military history podcast

Let's face it: most military history podcasts are dry and - even for those of us who love the subject - unlistenable crap.

Not this one.

Al and James are a fantastic combination. You get tons of knowledge and passion for the subject of WWII, plus a few laughs in the bargain. Never dull. Never pedantic. I've been reading about WWII for 40 years, and I always learn a little something here. It's like getting together with fellow history geeks over a beer and debating different aspects of the conflict - more of a bull session than a lecture.

Can't get enough of this show. Well done, gentlemen.

Fantastic Combo

As a lover of all things World War II, this combo of James Holland and Al Murray, gives you lots to ponder but with a light conversation style that makes you feel like your a part of the conversation. Thank you for this podcast, best part of my week!

Great Rapport

You pit the most prolific author on World War Two to one of the funniest men you'll ever meet and what do you get? A terrific podcast! Al Murray is a comedian and an historian in his own right with a number of books under his belt and James Holland is a leading authority on the Second World War with scores of books (histories and historical fiction) published. The rapport, the irreverent banter is a joy to listen to. A must-listen for all you WWII buffs out there. Get on Twitter and use #WeHaveWays to ask a question, you may get yours featured in the show.

Bravo, gentlemen.
