The Finest Half Hour: Setting Up the Pieces


The fifth episode of our podcast series, The Finest Half Hour, is now available!

This week we take a step back from the battles and the conquest to take a look at the major players.

What was the state of the world when the war began? How did the great powers stack up militarily, economically and diplomatically? What type of war did the various nations have to fight, what were their goals due to their place in the world at the outset of the Second World War?

Sit back, relax and enjoy the latest podcast, wherever you are!
