History Happy Hour Episode 161 – With the Infantry in World War II
Guest: Peter Hart
Sunday, September 3, 2023
This week on History Happy Hour: Chris and Rick welcome back distinguished (and sometimes disruptive!) oral historian Peter Hart to talk about his new book Footsloggers: An Infantry Battalion at War, 1939-1945.
He’ll share the story of a single British infantry battalion during WWII. From North Africa to Italy and Greece, the 16th learned their military skills the hard way facing determined German opposition every step of the way.
Sunday at 4PM ET, on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
