It was a cold, autumnal Monday morning on Platform 5 at Temple Meads Station in the centre of Bristol but even at 1am, the area was packed. Soldiers were waiting for their train to start them on their journey back to the trenches in France to continue fighting in WW1 and with them, scores of loved ones, cherishing precious moments before they went off. A tale of love and betrayal for a soldier home from the trenches of France in WW1 and a callous man out for revenge. Crafted by a self confessed history geek for no financial gain, who enjoys those stories from the past that might have been forgotten, The Backtracker History Show is first aired on Bradley Stoke RadioFM in Bristol, England, before being plonked onto the podcast stage for all to enjoy If you enjoyed the show, don't forget to share or leave feedback.
