With the holiday season upon us I've a festive episode for you.
The US 28th Infantry Division landed in France in July of 1944. After fighting through the Bocage and taking part in the parade through Paris to mark its liberation they were sent to the Hürtgen Forest.
Badly shot up they we're withdrawn and sent to a small town in Luxembourg called Wiltz.
To tell the story of the American St Nick I'm joined by Peter Lion whose book "The American St Nick" tells the story.
We're looking at the Operation Sea Lion, the German invasion plan for Britain in the latest podcast.
I'm joined by Robert Forczyk.
Robert is a prolific author and military historian. His latest book “We march against England: Operation Sea Lion 1940/41” is a fresh look at the German plans to invade Britain and what they might have faced.
