The first two episodes are launching on Monday 3rd June and cover the start of the Anglo-Zulu and the disaster at Isandlwana.


Learn the history of the British army, its most famous campaigns, its worst defeats and its greatest leaders. On the first Monday of every month battlefield explorer, Christian Parkinson delves deep into a new topic. This is a podcast for the military geeks, the obsessives, those who like to feel what it is like to fix bayonets and charge the French. It is military history as it should be: exciting, fast-paced and so real you can smell the gunpowder.
