Professional Military Education for Officers and SNCOs in 30-minute podcasts. The Principles of War podcast is designed to place current doctrine into context by looking at historic battles and campaigns and analysing their conduct through the lens of doctrine.
Special areas of interest are Leadership, Mission Command, Centre of Gravity analysis, Military Innovation and Combined Arms.
Major campaigns covered include Malaya 1940-1941, The Battle of Long Tan, with interviews with Dave Sabbin and LT COL Harry Smith, Mission Command with BRIG Ulf Henriccson, Commander of NORDBAT 2 and our interview with Sir Max Hastings on the lessons learnt from the Vietnam War.
Podcasts as Professional Military Education are a highly effective medium, allowing listeners to conduct a 30-minute PME session whilst doing PT or commuting to work. Each episode is accompanied with show notes, with images and maps for the associated episode.
The podcast has created a strong following with serving members, ex-members, and students of military history and has generated over 460,000 downloads.
The Firepower Seminar series was produced by the Royal Australian Artillery Historical Company. Over 4 years, the development of Australian Artillery was covered in great detail. These are fascinating episodes for Artillery Officers and SNCOs, military historians and those interested in the conduct of World War 1.
