It has been more than a month since the launch of Sabaton History and we wish to thank all of our fans for supporting this initiative and for subscribing to our new channel.
Why are we doing this and why should you join?
This has been a dream of ours for many, many years. We want to share the stories that inspired us in the first place with you all, and Sabaton History is our chance to do exactly that.
We’ll dive into the history but we will also explain what that particular song means to us, how we came up with the initial idea, and share some amazing stories (some are truly epic!) about our experiences around the song.
It’s only now that we’re in a position to even think of doing this, and in the end we need you to participate so that we can keep investing into this awesome channel together. So get involved with the project and join us by choosing one of our membership tiers and help make this an awesome and huge project!
By being a member of Sabaton History not only will you be part of the force that keeps us rolling – you will also get some exclusive benefits only available for our Sabaton History members including early access to every new episode! And there’s much more than this depending on the tier you choose:
This week’s episode on Sabaton History is all about the battle of Shiroyama in 1877 which marked the end of an era and was the heroic last stand of the legendary Samurai.
What will you do when your traditional way of life is threatened by a powerful force in your native lands? The samurai didn’t hesitate to answer this question with: our swords. During the Satsuma Rebellion, the samurai and its leader Saigō Takamori fought the Japanese Imperial Government. Their rebellion ended with the Battle of Shiroyama, where in 1877 the samurai prepared for a last stand.
The winter has come to the Sabaton History Channel! Joakim talks about the song Talvisota, Finnish Sisu and Molotov cocktails.
This war is modern version of David versus Goliath. The Sabaton song ‘Talvisota’ is about the Winter War that took place in late 1939 till the early spring of 1940 between Finland and the Soviet union. Against all odds, and an overwhelming amount of Red Army Soldiers, the Finnish army manage to hold off the Soviet advance for longer than anyone could have foreseen.
