    Unconventional Tactics

    In this episode of the Ancient Warfare Podcast we are discussing unconventional tactics, a topic suggested by one of our listeners (but Jasper can't remember who, so thank you whoever you are!).

    We have a full house of contributors, Jasper Oorthuys, Murray Dahm, Lindsay Powell, Mark McCaffery, Myke Cole and Marc DeSantis.

    We may have gone a little off topic, heading down the route of special forces, so possibly not as much talk of flying pigs as we might have otherwise have anticipated.
