Almost three years ago I was a guest on WW2 Podcast, hosted by Angus Wallace. We discussed my Master’s Thesis, which I’ve since transformed into my first book, Eagles over Husky: The Allied Air Forces and the Sicilian Campaign, 14 May to 17 August 1943.
Angus and I had been trying to find a way to cooperate on another podcast over the last couple of years. We finally managed it. Listen in as we discuss Mediterranean strategy in the Second World War. The discussion takes us from Gibraltar to Alexandria, and from 1940 to 1945.
As a framework for our chat, we both read Douglas Porch’s Path to Victory: The Mediterranean Theater in World War II. In it, the author posits that the Mediterranean war made a significant and necessary contribution to Allied victory.
In related news, I’ve also started hosting a podcast for the Juno Beach Centre this summer. Juno Beach and Beyond is Canada’s first Second World War podcast. Tune in to discover how Canada punched above its weight in the war that changed the world.
