In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, author Peter FitzSimons joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss this moment in military history, looking not only at the events that took place but the thought processes behind every aspect that lead to the development of these events.
FitzSimons will also discuss his writing process and how the fine detail and extensive research is key to telling the stories of these monumental moments in history, share how his literature is a means of helping the characters who lost their lives live and breathe once more, and take on claims that his writing is a glorification of war.
