Ep 180: Those Devils in Baggy Pants

A sneak preview of our latest audiobook Those Devils In Baggy Pants which tells the story of life in the US 82nd Airborne Division.

The author, Ross S Carter, took part in every major campaign featuring the 504th Parachute Infantry, from Sicily in 1943 through to Germany in May 1945.

It’s a cracking read, and it’s been beautifully read by American actor and great friend of this podcast, Chaz Mena.
