The WW2 Podcast
About This Show
A history podcast looking at all aspects of WWII, military history, social history, the battles, the campaigns, tanks, gun and other equipment, the politics and those who ran the war. I look at it all.
With WW2 slipping from living memory I aim to look at different historical aspects of the Second World War.
In each episode of the WWII Podcast I interview an expert on a subject. No topics are out of bounds (as yet), and I cover the military history side of the war as well as looking the home front.
Hopefully the format allows for close examination of a topic, and makes for absorbing listening.

Good Content and Delivery
My only quibble is the occasional error such as repeating the myth that Hitler spent time living in Liverpool, which is probably due to his use of secondary sources exclusively. He is really sincere-sounding and adds interesting personal comments. More use of first-hand account could help too. I guess that would be several hundred more podcasts though.
