Podcast 43. In this podcast, relased june 6 2014 - 70 years after the Allied invasion of Normandie - I take a look at how the United States - and it's soldiers - saved Europe from nazism and defended the peace we all cherish. I interview my Internet friend Brian Baumgartner - an Iraq war veteran about his military service and about the latest news about the Veteran's Affairs scandal and the relase of Bowe Bergdahl - the American soldier held prisoner for 5 years by the taliban.
I also interview Keith Lowe - a British historian and author of the book "Savage Continent: Europe in the Aftermath of World War II" about the complicated situation in Europe in the post-war years.
This podcast is dedicated to British and American soldiers, who during history has made this world a far better place than it ever would have been without them. On this day we remember you.
