Continuing our Focus on Month looking at Hitler’s December 1944 – January 1945 Offensive in the West, we sat down with British military historian and author of the book ‘Snow & Steel,’ Dr Peter Caddick-Adams to learn more about the Battle of the Bulge.
In the first episode of our WW2 Nation podcast focusing on the Battle of the Bulge, we discuss with Peter the planning behind Hitler’s last throw of the dice in the Ardennes, the reason behind his decision to choose this region, the objectives of the Wacht am Rhein campaign, a secret German POW breakout plot in Britain, Allied intelligence failings, the importance of fuel, the MP-44 and much, much more.
Listen To Part 1 Here:
Part 2 and 3 of Talking the Battle of the Bulge with Dr. Peter Caddick-Adams will be out very shortly. Until then though, why not watch our latest Vlog from the Ardennes where we head to the Northern Shoulder to visit King Tiger Tank 213 at La Gleize, see the Westwall and a lot more.
