Artillery Bear: Story of Wojtek

This week on the Tipsy Timeline we discuss a fascinating corner of WWII history. He's a 500-pound, fun-loving, hard-working, beer-drinking champion. And of course, he's a bear. Find out what on Earth this means, how he became one of WWII's most famous soldiers, and how he still captures hearts and minds. Join us for this week's Tipsy Timeline!

We discuss Wojtek, the bear adopted and enlisted by the Polish army in WWII. He traveled with his company from Iran all the way through into Egypt, and eventually saw combat in Italy. Sources for this week's episode can be found here:
