WW2 Italy with James Holland

Home » podcasts » Episode 117

James Holland joins to discuss the Allied campaign in Italy in the autumn of 1943 as they sought to capitalise on the capture of Sicily and head up the boot of the Italian peninsular, to both knock the Italians out the war, and to reach the Nazi factories of southern Germany and Austria.

James is the author of The Savage Storm, his new book on the campaign, as well as a myriad of other titles so he is certainly Mr World War Two.
