World War II had presented a new wave of technological advancements in weapons.  Tracing the origins of large caliber, long range artillery goes back to World War I, but it was the Germans in the Anzio campaigns that captivated the Allies.  Here, the gun known as Anzio Annie was deployed, and she would serve as the foundation to one of the most iconic and largely forgotten artillery pieces in history.  Join us as we discuss Atomic Annie, Baby Annie, and the U.S. Army's Triple Threat Weapon as we kick off our new series: Forgotten History.
