Unknown Soldiers

with James Houser

The Unknown Soldiers Podcast with James Houser examines the forgotten stories and figures of military history. This project takes an international, era-spanning approach to examine both the men and the women of history's greatest and most unknown wars, combining gripping storytelling with historical rigor...and a little bit of Dad humor along the way.

In this podcast, you will learn about:


  • Unsung men like Bernardo de Galvez, Yi Sun-Sin and Chandragupta Maurya 

  • Outstanding women like Nzinga of Ndongo, Maria Bochkareva and Mary Seacole 

  • Forgotten struggles like the Nez Perce War, the Imjin War and the Filibuster War

  • Forgotten fronts of famous wars, like the Revolutionary War's Siege of Gibraltar, the Civil War's New Mexico Campaign, and the Southern France Campaign of World War II.

Your host, James Houser, is committed to shining light on the forgotten stories of military history. These are real stories, with real people, who don't deserve to be unknown soldiers.
