I’ve been a student of WW2 since I was 6 years old . I’d ask my Grandpa about his time in the big one ,and he’d tell me about day to day activities and pranks he and his brothers would play on one another. When I was a young man I finally got brave enough to ask about the darker aspects of war ,and he obliged best he could. I saw how he went back there and I had never felt closer to my hero than I did that day . It’s so important to archive these experiences . It’s like Churchill said “those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it” and the host Paul is a wonderful man who brings these memories to life . I can’t thank him enough for the shout outs he did for my family (ep62) . If I could give it more stars I totally would. If you have an interest in history, this podcast Is a must listen. Paul gives perspectives from every angle. Being American we don’t learn about Dunkirk in history class and one episode is told from a German soldiers on D-Day . It’s fascinating to hear that. Paul please keep up the great work. I truly appreciate you Buddy. “Now how good was that?” lol , over and out !
