If you think the government has a level headed reaction to this you must be new to our show.

||CleanEpisode 4 - The House That Pavlov Built||On this episode of the Lions Led by Donkeys we talk about Sergeant Yakov Pavlov and his Soviet House of Death during the Battle of Stalingrad.

Lions led by Donkeys is a great podcast.
Joe's voice is that of an experienced narrator. The podcast itself was hilarious, informative, and a fantastic listen. It is always enjoyable to listen to the history of leader's epic failures.
Both Hilarious and Horrifying
LLBD Podcast covers some of the worst commanders and military disaster's throughout history. From Luigi "Let's go for #13" Cadorna to the mishaps at the Somme, the hosts manage to manage to make the wasteless sacrifices of millions of men both informative and borderline comical. Highly recommend for fans of military history and history buffs in general.
