Dan Carlin does it again.
Once again, he gives a command performance in this series about the "Eastern Front" of World War II — the one we seldom hear about between Germany and the Soviet Union. This part in the series is every bit as amazing, awe-inspiring and terrifying as the rest.
Originally produced as a series of podcasts, this collection of suspenseful, supremely well-documented and thought-provoking lectures becomes a special kind of audiobook — one without a paper equivalent. Carlin has not only found the ideal medium for making history come alive. As a master storyteller, he has birthed a treasure trove of true stories about humanity's most loathsome mistakes and it's greatest triumphs. The perfect medium not just for learning about, but also for thoroughly enjoying, the subject of history. Be sure to listen to all of the "episodes" in the "Ghosts of the Ostfront" series in order, for the best experience.
In Part Two of the Ostfront series, covering WW2 on the Eastern Front, Dan looks at the attempt to take Moscow and the many compelling stories surrounding the momentous1941 German offensive.
An amateur historians dream
We all wish our history professor was as cool as Dan. This is one of his better podcasts. Huzzah! Cheap entertainment - Three bucks (two on the website) a show, it's all we ask!
