The Redcoat History Podcast is now out.

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.
