#10 History Hack: Crucible of Hell

Join Alex and Alina as they talk to Saul David about his smash hit new book: Crucible of Hell: Okinawa, the Last Great Battle of the Second World War. Saul puts the battle into context, explains the thought process behind Kamikaze pilots, the truth about Hacksaw Ridge, the morality of dropping atomic bombs and makes our day with the revelation that gin and tonic might be all you need to combat Covid-19.
