This week, we have a special guest with Sandra helping out with the presentation of the History of France in English podcast. We look at the loss of Cisalpine Gaul to the Romans after invasion by the Teutons and the Cimbri or Kymrians. As usual, some Gauls side with one side while some side with the other. The Teuton forces and the Cimbri are wiped out.
In our new feature, A River Runs Through It, the Loire, the longest river in France, is examined in all its glory.
Cocktail Party Slapdown takes a look at the French victory of Fleurus, which saw the French Republic forces beat back the royalist supporting First Coalition armies of Britain, Austria, the Hapburghs and Netherlands.
