19 - Can we judge historical 'War Crimes' by today's standards.. Part One

19 - Can we judge historical 'War Crimes' by today's standards.. Part One

Greg's inability to count leaves the CHG team without enough podcasts to cover the period while Greg is rehearsing to Italy, and so Greg had to cobble together a temporary recording set up (which is all pre-amble to apologise for the sound).

Jem wants to discuss how 'War Crime' laws should be applied to historical leaders, warriors and events, but the discussion immediately proves itself to be too big for a single podcast episode as just trying to pin down what a historical war crime is takes up most of this episode!

On the way, discussions touch on Humpty Dumpty, sieges, the traffic in Turin, and of course the all important 'what if'.
