In Episode 4 of the WW2 Nation Podcast, we speak Battle of the Bulge with British military histrorian and author of 'Snow and Steel,' Dr. Peter Caddick-Adams.
In this second instalment, we discuss with Peter the terrain and weather conditions in the Ardennes and how well prepared soldiers from both sides were to cope in these harsh circumstances. We also look at the events of Saturday 16th December 1944, that very first day of the battle and how one man or unit could make a big impact, as well as this we examine the Allied high-command's response to this sudden surprise attack.
Thanks for listening and we do hope you have found this episode of interest. Part 3 will follow very shortly!
