Coming Soon: Total Jihad – Fetih and the Last Battle of Constantinople

It’s the cross and the crescent. It’s the Muslim reconquista. It’s the Bible versus the Koran. It’s men forsaking riches and wealth and women to go and die for their brothers hundreds of miles away. It’s martyrs. It’s identity and it’s thousands of years of history culminating in total conflict. It’s a battle known the world over. It’s the last outpost of Christian  Europe in the Near East facing down a Turkish onslaught. It’s a battle that has profound and lasting implications for our modern world: from debates about Turkish entry into the European Union to the role of religion in warfare. It’s called the Battle of Constantinople. We’ll recount it all and we’ll analyze it all on Battlecast – the world’s foremost podcast on warfare and its socio-political impact.
