One Response to “HP112 – Battle of the Aleutian Islands”

  1. Jason, great show. The history was interesting. I enjoy the WWII shows.

    I got funny looks from my wife when I was laughing at the bloopers at the end of the show. “Colonel ‘Oh my God! is that your name?’” Hilarious!

    I get the same feeling when trying to pronounce the names from mythology. You have my sympathies. Keep up the great work!

    Thanks, Greg
