The History Files - episode #14: From Lance to Pistol

Cuirassiers of Gottfried Heinrich Graf zu Pappenheim
In this episode of the History Files, Gordon discusses the difference between "warrior" and "soldier", and the impact of the evolution of firearms on what would become the model of the modern army.

Producer’s note: We had a recording glitch that meant I had to chase Gordon down at his day job and re-record part of the main segment in less-than-ideal circumstances, so that’s the reason for the weird “why is he suddenly in an abandoned warehouse?” sound for a few minutes. Apologies!
