The WW2 Podcast

The WW2 Podcast is a history show looking at all aspects of the Second World War; military history, social history, the battles, the campaigns, tanks, guns and other equipment, the politics and those who ran the war. What sets the WW2 Podcast apart is the in-depth interviews with experts on various subjects. No topics are off-limits (yet), and I delve into both the military history aspect of the war, and the home front. This format allows for a thorough exploration of each topic, making for a truly absorbing listen. Angus Wallace is a long-time history podcaster, holding PhD in history, and has lectured at university level.

The Parachute Regiment was formed in June 1940 and eventually raised 17 battalions. It would see service in North Africa, Sicily, Italy, Normandy, Arnhem and would cross the Rhine as part of the largest airborne assault ever undertaken.

To discuss the formation of the regiment and its history through WWII, I’m joined by historian and broadcaster Mark Urban, who has written an authorised history of the regiment called Red Devils: The Trailblazers of the Parachute Regiment in World War Two.
