The WW2 Podcast

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.

Within a year of Belgium falling to the Germans in 1940, Belgian citizens were volunteering to join the Waffen SS to fight communism on the newly formed Eastern Front. Thousands volunteered, and the suffered heavy casualties. 

I’m joined by Jonathan Trigg author of Voices of the Flemish Waffen SS. He has been gathering the stories of these men and women. What remarkable stories they are, I devoured the book in just two evenings…

    Hi Angus, I have been binge listening to your podcast for the last few weeks. I have found both your self and your guests so very interesting. My grandfather was in the Somerset infantry from the start to the finish, he is 98 this year and still kicking on, we are all so very proud of what he and his mates when through so we could live the way we do today. I really like your format and look forward to listening to what you have install in the coming months and hopefully years to come. Keep up your great work. Ben Eglinton, Melbourne

    Sounds interesting! I will listen. I wonder if they took part in war crimes as well?
