Jul 26, 2018 | Art of Living

Smithsonian Associates, Interview Series

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, I’m your host Paul Vogelzang, this is episode #243.

As part of our Smithsonian Associates Art Of Living Interview Series, our guest today on the Not Old Better Show is Timothy Mulligan.  Timothy Mulligan is an author and retired archivist at the National Archives, who specialized in captured German and related American military records of World War II.

Timothy Mulligan, our guest today will be joining us to talk about the “decisive battle of the second World War, the battle of Stalingrad.”  And, because music played such a role in promoting propaganda, we’re playing the March of the Soviet Tankmen, the March of Stalin’s Air Force, both of which are original recordings, and played frequently during WW2.  The Battle of Stalingrad is a fascinating, yet tragic, subject, and a battle fought mostly for prestige, notably considered history’s first battle over oil, but the battle ended with the annihilation of an entire German army of 250,000 men.
