What is war actually like on the front line? What is it like to have bullets fly millimetres past your head? What happens when your weapon jams and the enemy are tracking you down?
We dive into the excruciating training methods soldiers endured, their death-defying experiences and how they coped with life after the war.
The veterans discuss the soldiers’ strong brotherhood bond, one the highs of serving. And the lows, where one unit was ambushed in the middle of the night by a rain of rockets and gunfire.
Hear it straight from those who have crawled for miles through sand, snow, mud and water.
All is revealed in this podcast where no bullet is left unloaded, and no man is left behind.

What did Jason Brown and his unit do to help recover and retrieve the threat of nuclear weapons?
Private Brown chats to Military Tales about his experiences in the Protestant-Catholic War, Bosnian War and in particular, the Gulf War, where he fought against rebels and the threat of Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons.
Jason also talks about his role in the Royal Corps of Transport, what that entailed and how he had to deliver a truck full of fuel through a minefield at the age of just 19. You’re going to want to listen to that one!
He speaks about several lifelong friends of different cultures he met through his career and his memories of joy and happiness whilst on duty.
Brown also tells us whether is struggled or adapted well to life after the war and what he does with his life currently.
A real interesting and crazy episode full of surprises, shocks and scares.
