To mark 30 years since the start of the 1991 Gulf War, known by the British Forces as Operation GRANBY, BFBS the Forces Station has released a six-part podcast telling the stories of those who were there.
Decision-makers including Sir John Major, Major Cordingley and Lord King, military commanders and soldiers, sailors and airmen reflect on their roles in the 1991 Gulf War, 30 years on.
The podcast series explores the mood of the nation, our fear of biological warfare, how it was being reported on in the news and what it was like for those who were left at home.
It also takes a look into whether our troops were ready to fight in the Middle East and what happened to those who were involved after the war ended. You will hear from veterans who experienced the operation first-hand as they share their memories.
Episodes one to three are available now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and on bfbs.com/podcasts
