Welcome to the new WW2 podcast! This is a test transmission so you (and I) can check iTunes will deliver the first episode of the podcast on the 1st of May.
The first episode we will look at the iconic German Halftrack, the Sd.Kfz.251. I talk to Paul Hilditch of the Northern WWII Association (in the UK). Paul owns a Czech built OT-810, which was based on the Second World War German model. He has has it carefully modified back to as close as an original halftrack as you are going to see running.
Episode two I talk to Don Keith about the sinking of the USS Neosho, a oiler fuelling the Carrier Fleet during the Battle of the Coral Sea.
Our third episode we’ll be looking at Omar Bradley and I talk to Jeffery Lavoie. Jeffery acquired, from ebay, an unpublished manuscript by Bradley’s second wife which was the outline for a biography of the great man.
I’ll be delivery one podcast a month hopefully on a very eclectic range of WW2 topics.
I hope you enjoy listening.
