#OnThisDay 1943 The 38th (Irish) Brigade cross the Simeto River having just captured the town of Centuripe in Sicily in the face of heavy German resistance. Casualties were heavy but the 38th had crossed the river by 9pm.
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.
