Welcome to our new series of podcasts, the A-Z of Battles. For each letter, Tony and Freya choose a favourite battle of theirs to discuss, as well as looking briefly at several that didn't make the cut. For A, they look at Arnhem, the Alamo, Antietam, Austerlitz, and their final choices are Agincourt and El Alamein.
