Steven, Luke, and Dirty Jon are back, after a little R&R post Cold Wars. The team is more subdued than usual, probably because the drink of choice is water. This time around they discuss Cold Wars, Mobility in Flames of War, Panzer Leader by Guderian, and much more!

This was a nice and subdued episode- which we all needed after Cold Wars! Sorry if I sound stuffy as hell- can't kick this Spring Cold!

Another great episode guys, listened during my painting session - made time fly.

Really interesting stuff the Guderian book, might buy it to read about his point of view on the Polish campaign. Allegedly during the battle of Wizna he threatened to execute Polish POW's to make the Wizna defenders surrender, but he never fullfilled that threat. Wonder if the recount of the battle is included in the book.

Great work and a really good variety of stuff this time.
'Panzer Leader' should be a MUST READ on any history student's bookshelf. And while it can be dry and sometimes difficult to read, the exchanges between Guderian and Hitler is enough to justify the purchase of this book.

Btw, Dirty Jon puts the "Frost" in Frosty Beverage.

Dirty Jon said...

@MG-42: I agree 100%. The book provides a ton of wonderful anecdotes and personal stories.

0dbdb9ca-4de5-11e0-a271-000bcdca4d7a said...

For anyone looking for a similar book Hans Von Luck's Panzer Commander book IS NOT IT. The book is pretty much a joy ride of Luck driving around the Eastern Front and North Africa with little to know insight into anything combat related. It's a good read if your looking for a guy who gets along well with his troops and loves talking about all the spoils of war he acquires in every theatre of the war. Sometimes shows compassion for the hardship of the troops under his command but then boasts about great meals he gets while his troops go hungry and without.

The redeeming factor is he talks about the hardships of surviving in the Gulag. Although some reviewers on Amazon state he probably deserved it for all the favors and gifts he recieved from the areas he visited and help conqueror.

Puts the Bust in Tank Busters.
Puts the Lay in Awkward Layout.
Puts the Mount in Mountaineers.
Puts the Load in Overloaded.
Puts the Frost in Frosty Beverages.
Puts the Special in Special Rules.
Puts the Hasty Ass in Hasty Assault(play on the current episode)
Puts the Bull in British Bulldog

And my favorite:

Puts the Man-Packed in Man-Packed guns.

Ok, im done. :-P

Dirty Jon said...

@shitpilesofnumbersanletters: Yeah, that book sucks. I read it a long time ago and do not recommend it.

Luke said...

Yeah, for some reason it won't take my AOL profile and just spews a heaping pile of shat.

Luke said...

Maybe this contest was a bad idea. Steve is going to start thinking he is Chuck Norris :)

indierockclimber said...

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying this.

Although NOBODY puts baby in the corner.

Wodensraven said...

Luke said...

There he is. Nice. I was wondering who that was.

Lamenter40K said...

The man who never loses, only chooses not to win (like Chuck Norris!).

Lamenter40K said...

The man who put the Toon in Pattoon!

Neal Smith said...

The man who put the "Bark" in "Barkmann".
"night" in "nightcrawlers"
"pan" in "Panhards"
"man" in "Sherman"

Instead of stars for ratings you need to use "ivory handled revolvers".

kbdrand said...

Dang it. I posted my entry on the forum. Didn't realize you guys meant the blog entry here. I thought I heard "on the forums " during the podcast. Looks like someone already posted a variant of mine. Oh well, I will repost it anyway.

Here is my contest entry:

Love your work guys, best thing to have on while painting. You guys are constantly cracking me up, numerous times I have to redo collar marks and shoulder epaulets due to laughter while painting.
