A History of Europe, Key Battles

By Carl Rylett

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


A podcast on European conflicts from the perspective of each side to provide an alternative to the traditional national narratives. Going chronologically from the Ancient Greeks onwards I will describe to some extent how each battle was won or lost by particular decisions, tactics, technology or fortune. But the aim of each main narrative will be to place each battle in the context of the overall history of Europe.

Customer Reviews

Surprisingly broad

Quite good. It's more than a simple military history. Give the first few episodes a try. I was impressed.

Also good for the non-military enthusiast

General history sometimes gloss over major battles, providing detail only as necessary in the context of the bigger picture. Sometimes, I want more info about specific battles: where, strategies, people, context, etc. But also not too interested in the exhaustive nitty-gritty that military enthusiasts look for. Also, learning names of important battles I knew about generally but not specifically. This podcast is perfect for me. Do not think military enthusiasts will be disappointed either.

An Engaging Mix

Mr. Rylett strikes a pleasing balance between battle narrative and historical context. The podcast provides a solid overview that encourages further exploration for those so inclined.
