Hedge-Hopping with Matt Bone: Birds of Prey with Dr Philip Blood - Pt 1: The Hunt

The Luftwaffe's actions in the air in the Second World War tend to occupy our memories, but they were very active on the ground and committed the same atrocities as the other arms of the Nazi war machine. In his new book, Birds of Prey, Dr Philip Blood analyses the efforts of a Luftwaffe ground unit that attempted to pacify a forest in East Prussia, now Poland, and in these actions, the mindset of The Hunter that pervaded the Nazi mindset. In Part 1 of a two-part Hedge Hopping sortie, Matt and Phil discuss the development of the hunt and the hunter in Germany and how this was Nazified and weaponised in the Third Rich.
