    Extremely difficult subject to tackle but Dan does a fantastic job

  2. Thomas

    wow……This podcast should be mandatory for all humans to listen to.

  3. David

    I love this episode because even though he didn’t set out to do this, he details the events that gave birth to the US Air Force. So much of his research list was required reading back when I was an academy cadet, but his telling of the story focuses unapologetically on the early evolution of strategic bombing. Anyone interested in the development of modern air power needs to know this story.

    Excellent treatment of an emotionally charged event. Dan takes you into the mindset of the people and governments of the time, exploring the extreme inhumanity that preceded the dropping of Little Boy and Fat Man. It puts a very different perspective on the end of the war and is a careful lesson not to be taken in by the kneejerk reaction we have today against the nuclear weapons of World War Two. Required reading for, well, everyone.
