Great podcast and informative.

Need too swat up on your history listen to this great cast. Well written and very informative. Not too sure about zee dodgy accents though. Look forward to more of the same.

Agree about the accents but...

Very good stuff here, maybe could do with a little longer but I laughed out loud on the train when the narrator did the dodgy "Hitler" quote in the Zhukov episode. Is he being ironic? His accents are rubbish and should stop immediately! Play some of the title music in the background when quoting others if you must, but most of us who will listen to the podcast are reasonably intelligent and can tell when it's another's words you're quoting so just say "As Wellington said,,," and get on with it. Still it's nice to have an intelligent podcast to listen to. Still only 3 stars though, lose one for the accents and another for the casts being too short.

I hated doing history at school...

Ok, it was a long time ago but I remember it being a dull, boring subject - not to mention the dry, sleep-inducing way it was presented. This podcast is the complete opposite - I downloaded the General Patton one first of all, which I've listened to a few times now. I learned loads whilst being entertained by the obvious enthusiasm and wit of the narrator. He's clearly enjoying himself, and why not? Plus, he sounds a bit like Peter Cook and that's just fine with me. Don't let that other reviewer put you off - the dodgy voices probably will make you chuckle but what's so bad about that?
