The History of France in English is a weekly podcast. Oddly enough, it's about the history of France and in the English language. Every week t...
Finally after a long, long, long break, HoFiE is back. We pick up where we left off - with a look at Caesar's Gaul and his relationship with a druid of some note. We also have a Cocktail Party Slapdown looking at a French calvary charge that captures a Dutch fleet. Yeah, you read that right.

This week we wrap up the war in Gaul between the Romans and the Gauls and Caesar and Vercingetorix... sadly. The Battle of Alesia puts an end to the Gallic hopes for freedom, but it does mean better trade relations! Also we look at a sad story that spells the end of a village during the Second Wo...

Caesar meets Vercingetorix and has a nasty time of it, almost getting chased out of Gaul. Meanwhile in Cocktail Party Slapdown, the French take St. John's thanks to some good planning on their part and bad planning on the British side. And St. John's and Newfoundland are awesome!

We continue our chronological history of France with Caesar still messing with Gaul in 52 BCE plus a Cocktail Party Slapdown and the Battle of Toulon in 1707 - a big French win on land and a bad decision in the harbour. Sigh.

This week, we return to the chronological story of the history of France as Gaul meets Caesar. Of course can't get enough of Gaul and so takes pretty much all of it. We also see Charles 'The Hammer' Martel stop the Muslim expansion in Europe at the battle of Poitiers. He's very sneaky.
