Warrior Nation podcast: Unpacking Armed Forces Day
In this special episode of Warrior Nation, Joe is joined by Dr Ross McGarry to discuss the deeper and varied meanings behind Armed Forces Day. In 2017, when Liverpool hosted the Armed Forces Day national event, Ross ventured out onto the streets of his home town to experience proceedings with a critical – and analytical – eye. He reflects on his findings and highlights how the event offered up a sanatised view of military life that is out of touch with the reality.
