In Episode 5 of the WW2 Nation Podcast it is the third instalment of our conversation with British military historian and author of Snow & Steel, Dr. Peter Caddick-Adams.
We will be looking at the siege of Bastogne, conditions inside the town for the defenders and civilians alike, the issue of logistics and re-supply, the use of air-power during the campaign including Operation Bodenplatte and the impact of the King Tiger Tank in the Ardennes. Added to that we will be examining Germany’s use of special forces in the forms of the Fallschirmjäger and also of Otto Skorzeny’s english-speaking commandos, friendly fire incidences and also the British role and contribution during the Battle of the Bulge.

Thank you to Peter for kindly taking the time to speak with us. Also a big thank you to you for listening. We will be sitting down with Peter hopefully again very shortly to discuss even more about the Battle of the Bulge, so if you have any questions you would like to ask him about this, then please do feel free to drop us an email via our contact us form.
