Battle Lines

Tom Holland and Iszi Lawrence follow history’s story-laden lines and linkages. This week it's battle lines, from mythical Nazi invasions to gender fluid soldiers.

In the last of this series Tom Holland and Iszi Lawrence look at the stories around another line in history - battle lines. From the fable of the Nazi invasion across one of Britain's oldest battle lines on Suffolk's beaches, through Thucydides and on to cross-dressing soldiers across the ages.
