Achtung! Achtung! Comedian Al Murray and historian James Holland are creating a new podcast all about the Second World War. We Have Ways of Making You Talk will be a weekly show exploring the war in close up. The two men will tell battlefield tales and bring forgotten events back into sharp focus. If you’re looking for a comprehensive history, marching through events date by date, forget it.  We Have Ways of Making You Talk will roam down forgotten front lines, cast new villains and make the case for unlikely heroes. Each week will also see Al and James bring along a World War Two artifact which will be poked, prodded and examined, before having its full story told. Battle stations!

In the first episode, Al Murray explains why the wings of a Spitfire never break off, while James Holland remembers the man who was told to smash up Monte Cassino. Plus General Patton, tactical genius or bloody murderer?
