#OnThisDay 1945 Irish-American Major Thomas McGuire, one of the most decorated US fighter pilots, the second highest scoring US ace of WW2 & Medal of Honor recipient crashed his P-38 (Pudgy) in a dogfight & died over the Philippines.
I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now.
I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in.
Hope you enjoy.
