    CHM008-The Battle of Trenton

     

     

    Summary:

    Here is another revisited CHM episode from way back in time or specifically a year and some months ago,.

    The audio is what I expect from the 3rd episode I ever created but its still worth releasing for the sake of continuity and the topic and info is good.

     

    Battle Of Trenton was what most Revolutionary War historians agree the turning point in the War for not just the  revolution but the British and Hessian forces learned a lesson in underestimating General Washington and his tactical plans and leadership on the field of battle.

    CHM007- From MLB To OSS, Moe Berg Part 2

    Moe Berg finally joined the OSS after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 6 1941.

    Moe worked as an analyst for the OSS until his chance to go to Europe and work in the field came when The Manhattan

    Project needed a spy to assist in Operation Alsos. Moe did clandestine work to track and discover the Nazis progress on the Atomic Bomb.

    His work and missions including the possible assassination of a world famous physicist had a direct impact on the success of The Manhattan Project and the outcome of World War 2.
