Wernher on the run
History made interesting!!!!
Fun facts I’ve never heard before ...
Helps me see understand the “why” of the war. I’ll definitely keep listening ... excited for next episode!!!
For someone that doesn’t have the time to delve into history as much as I should, this show is an awesome way to learn about events in history that aren’t well known but incredibly interesting. Each episode is easy to listen to and grabs your attention the entire time. I listen to this with my son during our morning commute each week!
