One of the best parts of going on a Stephen Ambrose Historical Tour is crowding into the bar at happy hour to discuss the places you have been and kibbitz over history tidbits.
Each Sunday at 4PM EDT, host-historians Christopher Anderson in London and Rick Beyer in Chicago each grab a cocktail and go live to talk history (and maybe some smack) during History Happy Hour. They welcome fascinating and knowledgeable guests such as authors Andrew Roberts, Joe Balkoski, Lynne Olson, and Hampton Sides for entertaining history discussions. And you get to join the conversation as well with questions and comments.
This Week on HHH – The Women of the SOE (Special Operations Executive)
This week on History Happy Hour: The remarkable women who risked their lives to go undercover in occupied France during World War II.
Recruited by Britain’s Special Operations Executive, thirty-nine women parachuted behind Nazi Lines to participate in espionage and sabotage missions, under constant threat of arrest by the Gestapo.
Host-historians Chris Anderson and Rick Beyer welcome Kate Vigurs, author of Mission France: The True History of the Women of SOE. A thrilling look into the lives of these thirty-nine agents, and how they helped “Set Europe ablaze” during World War II.
Sunday at 4PM ET on History Happy Hour, the spot where history is always on tap.
