Guest: Joseph Balkoski
Sunday, September 11, 2022
This Week on History Happy Hour: Chris and Rick welcome back Joe Balkoski, one of the most respected WWII historians there is, and a personal favorite of ours. Joe literally wrote the book(s) on D-Day, as well as a highly -detailed five-volume-history of the storied 29th Division.
This week we'll talk about his book From Brittany to the Reich, which chronicles the war weary division’s arrival on the German border as the northernmost division of the United States Army. We’ll also touch on the recent controversy regarding the 29th Division blue/gray Insignia.
The incredible story of the 29ers continues, this Sunday at 4 PM on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap
