In the course of two episodes and a TALK special, I examine the Wars Against the French, waged from 1789-1815. How do I fit it all into such a small amount of episodes? Well, come and see for yourself!
WDF 10.25: SPECIAL= Wars Against The French Part One: Revolution
In this episode, we'll cover the years 1787-1797 which includes; diplomatic dancing, Robby's favourite razor, Napoleon's entry onto the scene and a bit of revolutionary war thrown in too! It introduces us nicely to the world that Revolutionary France existed within, and why the wars began to erupt with an ever more worrying frequency. How did this impact European affairs? The short answer is in a big way, the long answer, is within this podcast!
WDF 10.50: SPECIAL= Wars Against The French Part Two: TALK
Sean and I delve into a few Napoleonic issues, but then get sidetracked with Sean's immense family history and the military career of Terrence O'Reilley. Arguably this was my greatest achievement in this special, and I was really excited to bring you guys a fascinating look at just how far back this era can be ingrained on one's family. Give it a listen as two bestos chat!
WDF 10.75: SPECIAL= Wars Against The French Part Three: Napoleon
How much Napoleon can one fit into 2 hours? Let's find out, as we tackle arguably WDF's biggest challenge. Did we succeed? That depends on whether you like your podcast experiences intense, or whether you like your pause button close by. I think we did a fair job. There may be room for a do-over in the future? Who knows, we'll just have to see. For now, Boney's greatest hits and misses can be found all in one place - here.
