The Redcoat History Podcast is now in its third season – The Peninsular War.
Learn the history of the British army, its most famous campaigns, its worst defeats and its greatest leaders. On or around the 15th of every month battlefield explorer and historical storyteller, 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.
Season Three covers the Peninsular War – probably Britain’s greatest military achievement. Season Two is a deep dive into the Battle of Plassey and the beginnings of the British Empire in India. The first Season examines the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879.
