Command: How the Allies Learned to Win the Second World War
About this deal
Murray, best-known for his character the Pub Landlord, has also made award-winning television shows on military history and has seen huge success hosting a podcast with fellow bestselling military historian James Holland, We Have Ways of Making You Talk. Command sees Murray analysing key military leaders of the Second World War, including some of the lesser-known officers. Through them, he tells how the allies rebounded from early defeats at Dunkirk and Pearl Harbour to victories at El Alamein and the D-Day invasion. Murray presented Al Murray's Road to Berlin on the Discovery Channel. This was a series about the last phase of the Second World War, taking him from the beaches of Normandy, through Arnhem and up the Rhine, ending in Berlin. He drove around in a restored Willys jeep, and interviewed survivors from both sides of the war. In the episode about Operation Market Garden he parachuted, together with veterans, from an aircraft, to commemorate the battle.   Connor, Laura (8 May 2015).
