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.

As the Allied forces prepared for the monumental invasion of Normandy, concealing the massive build-up of troops in Britain from the Germans became increasingly challenging. To mislead German intelligence about the timing and location of the invasion, the Allies devised a series of elaborate deception plans. The most audacious of these schemes aimed to convince the Germans that the Normandy landings were merely a diversion. This ruse featured a fictitious army led by General Patton, complete with hundreds of realistic dummy landing crafts, tanks, and aircraft.

Joining me to delve into the intricate web of D-Day deception is Taylor Downing, author of The Army That Never Was: D-Day and the Great Deception.
