Dr. Felton has written numerous books (which I’ll have to get around to reading and reviewing someday) but for general interest you can’t go wrong with trawling through his YouTube Channel – Mark Felton Productions.
In short, you’ll find a mass of short, extremely informative and fascinating videos on military history subjects. Dr. Felton gives a clear concise narration, accompanied with archival film or pictures to give a brief overview of the subject in hand.
The videos tend to be focused – understandable considering the short length and format – but contain an excellent explanation of the piece of history being discussed. Most cover World War Two subjects – though a host of diverse subjects are covered up to the modern day – and I have yet to view one which didn’t improve my knowledge, even if I thought I knew about the particular subject before watching.
Considering that these are short videos that really is quite remarkable!
Additionally the channel posts regularly, quite often several vidoes a week, so you can always find a new and interesting subject material.
A few examples of the sort of subjects covered:
And, for people interested in more modern stuff:
How highly do I rate Mark Felton Productions? I have something of vision of how I would like Military Matters and its related YouTube channel to look and function, as well as the sort of material that I would like to write about and feature. Unfortunately, Dr. Felton is already doing just that, and to a much higher standard than I think I would achieve.
I suppose I could be frustrated by that. But I’m simply impressed…and waiting for his next video to release.
So if you are into military history, whether a keen amateur or dedicated academic, check out Mark Felton Productions. There will be something on there that you find interesting.
