In this episode, we are joined by Mark Seven of the Record of Arms Podcast to talk about one of the most important events in the history of both Spain and Morocco: The Rif War. We take a look at Spain's presence in North Africa before the war, the reasons it happened, the sheer brutality of the conflict itself and the impact it had on the people fighting it, and what impact it would have on Spain's future, both long term and short term.

In this episode, we return to Oliver Cromwell to discuss what we weren't able to in Episode 17: Cromwell's politics, and his tenure as Lord Protector. Taking us through his complex life and political career is Martyn Bennett, Professor at Nottingham Trent University, and author of the book Cromwell at War. With him, we take a look at what makes Cromwell so complicated: from his beliefs of religious freedom clashing with his actions in Ireland, to his desire for a democracy in spite of his absolute power over the country, and much more.

In today's episode, Alex's brother joins us to discuss History's Worst Stalemate: the Isonzo Front of 1915-1918. We take a look at all 12 battles of the front, discussing the tactics, the equipment used, and the sheer incompetency of the leadership that brought them to 12 battles to begin with.

In this episode, we discuss the military career of one of the most important, controversial, and divisive figures in British history: Oliver Cromwell. From his early days as a landowner and as a member of Parliament, to raising some of the best cavalry troops ever seen and ultimately creating the New Model Army, we take an in-depth look at the man, the battles he commanded to victory, and the impact he has on the modern world.
