History of France in English's Podcast

The History of France in English is a weekly podcast. Oddly enough, it's about the history of France and in the English language. Every week there is a larger piece on the history of France and a shorter, cocktail party slapdown that offers a bit of history that runs counter to the usual stereotyping of character the world attributes to this great country.

The History of France in English Episode 35

This week we wrap up the war in Gaul between the Romans and the Gauls and Caesar and Vercingetorix... sadly. The Battle of Alesia puts an end to the Gallic hopes for freedom, but it does mean better trade relations! Also we look at a sad story that spells the end of a village during the Second World War.
