I cannot believe I have gotten to this point in the podcast, but this is my 12th full length monthly episode. This episode completes an entire year of Written in Blood History. I am not going to get all sappy on you in this intro. That will all come later. Right now, I need to introduce my final subject of season 1.
Oh, and by the way, the subject of this episode was blunt and at times vulgar and insensitive person by today’s standards. Because I will be quoting him, it should be expected that there will be some rough language. So, this is an official language warning. While I try to avoid being gratuitous, I don’t want to present a false image of the subject either. If this type of language is a problem for you, then now is the time to tune out.
Imagine if you had someone as prolific in battle as Alexander the Great or Julius Caesar, who lived in the twentieth century – with all the information that would be available on their life, there’s simply no way you could contain it all in a roughly 1 hour podcast. That the problem with doing an episode on Patton. He served in not one but two world wars, not to mention many other escapades.
With the overwhelming amount of information on this guy, it decided that it need to be split into two parts. Don’t worry, you’re not going to have to wait a whole month to hear the second part, I only delay part two by about a week.
Besides being my first two parter, another really awesome part of these episode is the orchestra music that my music guy Dario worked out. He took Tchaikovsky’s Overture of 1812 and abridged it into a few smaller versions for me to use as bumper music. He killed it.
The 1812 overture was a piece I listened to over and over again while writing this episode. And so I couldn’t be more thrilled thar I get to use it to book end the life of Patton.
And so, enough of my rambling. Turn your volume up as get thrown into the life experiences of Patton: The Master of the Sword.Support the show
