"I Was Only Doing My Job" is a fortnightly (Bi-weekly) Australian Military History podcast hosted by Ross Manuel.

I'm Cullen Burke, and this is Cauldron - A Military History Podcast. I'll cover the significant battles in history, breaking down the vital players, weapons, methods, events, and outcomes. Let’s take a peek into the past and see what, if anything, can be learned from the most dramatic moments in our collective story. Let’s get stuck in!
 
Learn the lessons of military history by looking at the great battles through the lens of the Principles of War. Part of the enduring nature of war, all good Generals follow the 10 Principles of War. The great Generals of history have the ability to know which of the principles are most important at the decisive moments of the campaign. We study the great battles to draw the lessons on strategy, tactics and leadership.
 
This show will highlight the military engagements of different wars throughout American and World History. We will summarize and analyze the importance of each battle, how they shaped the larger conflict's outcome, and how that conflict shaped, or still shapes, the world as we know it. All of this will be accomplished through a laid back approach over a nice adult beverage. Complete with comedic banter among friends, the goal is to make this particular history fun and enjoyable for scholars ...

From the medieva ...
