This week Veterans Radio welcomes Michael Haskew, military Author/Historian, and his book about General Patton and the iconic Sherman Tank.
December 7, 2016 marks the 75th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor Attack by the Japanese Imperial Navy, a date that has for over seven decades “lived in infamy.”
To commemorate the attack that prompted the United States to enter WWII, Smithsonian Channel will premiere its new documentary series The Lost Tapes with its first installment: The Lost Tapes: Pearl Harbor on Sunday, December 4 at 9:00 pm ET/PT.
Using archival footage, audio, radio reports, and rarely seen photographs, The Lost Tapes presents the events to the viewer as if they were occurring in real-time. With no interviews and narration, the series forces the viewer to experience the confusion and near pandemonium that occurred in Honolulu on that shocking day. Some of the primary media used in the series haven’t been seen for 70 years.
Our guest is The Lost Tapes: Pearl Harbor producer, Tom Jennings, and much much more this week on Veterans Radio.
World War II
Frequent Veterans Radio, Guest/Historian John McManus will take us back to the allies pressing forward after D-Day and the Battle for Caen. Patton was driving to the German border when Eisenhower switched fuel and supply priority to British Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery halting the aggressive U.S. General George Patton’s armored march into Metz and on to Germany. This led to Montgomery’s grand plan, Operation Market Garden or also known as a bridge too far.
The war in Europe was over. Now the United States had to turn their attention West, Japan. However, the U.S. had an ace…..the atomic bomb. Tested successfully, President Harry S. Truman, didn’t “Pass the buck” and made the final call. Use it against the Empire of Japan.
Frequent Veterans Radio, Guests/Historians, Kevin Hymel and John McManus will take us back 71 years and share their research of this world-changing event.
All Gave Some. Some Gave All.
