Here's Episode #8 of Till Victory (a podcast about WWII and peace), and Part 2 of my conversation with world-famous veteran Tom Rice (501st PIR, 101st Airborne Division). On this day 76 years ago, Tom Rice was wounded in Bastogne, the belgian city made famous by the long and heroic stand of the 101st Airborne Division, surrounded by German units during the Battle of the Bulge. So we'll talk about that, of course, but we'll pick up where we left off, right after the Normandy campaign when the Screaming Eagles were getting ready for their next jump in Holland, "Operation Market Garden". If you're new to the podcast and haven't listened to Tom's part I yet, in which we talk about training, D-Day and Normandy, I suggest you start with the beginning!   Clément Horvath, French author of "Till Victory - The Second World War By Those Who Were There" talks in this new series of podcasts with WWII veterans and their families about their war stories, the heritage of World War 2 and the future of peace.

Episode 7 - How do you talk to a World War II veteran? How hard is it for them to share personal and gruesome details about the reality of war, and as civilians, are we able to understand what they went through? My friend and French historian / Normandy battlefields tour guide Florent Plana (World War II veterans'memories / @ww2veteransmemories) might have answers to these questions, as he has recorded on video almost a thousand veterans all over the United States and Europe. In this special episode of the podcast, Flo let me use some of the incredible interview material he gathered over the years...
