These are some of my resources I used while working on the show notes for episode 8, the Battle of Iwo Jima. Tonight, I’m drinking Kona Big Wave and loving life. Wishing you all the best, Luke
I was working on the show notes for episode 8, and came across this quote from the book War Without Mercy. It’s from a popular Japanese song from 1944. This is how the culture of the Samurai was popularized. Imagine Lady Gaga singing about this and think how completely different this society was from ours.
Here is episode 2 of Bonuscast – the website-only show where Luke and Chris discuss their bad haircuts and drink beer. Topics include Portugal, best battles in movies, Ireland, and how our wives hate our podcast.

Thought you guys would like to see a map about the Second Punic War. You can thank Bob from Essex for sending me an email. And just for Bob: I’m sorry but Fuller’s London Ale has got nothing on London Porter. The ale is way too malty.
Thanks for all the support! Thanks go out to Justin in Laramie for the great email. We love the feedback!
Thanks go out to Jeff for the email and five star review on iTunes. We also want to thank Rachel for the donation to the beer fund. Chris’s alcoholism thanks you!
