Show Notes

This week, we recap, review, and provide analysis of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam (機動戦士Ζガンダム) episode 45 - "Coming from the Heavens" (天から来るもの), discuss our first impressions, and provide commentary and research on the French town of Sedan (and what connection it might have to the Gate of Zedan base!).

- Wikipedia pages for the town of Sedan and the castle (or “chateau”) there.

- Webpage for the Castle of Sedan itself.

- Famous personages connected to the town: Vauban (military engineer) and Turenne (general).

- Wikipedia pages for The Battle(s) of Sedan (La Marfeé in 1641, 1870, and 1940).

- Wikipedia page for German Unification and German Sedantag holiday.

- Book that discusses media depictions (specifically engravings and illustrations) of news events and the part they played in the construction of national identity:

Martin, Michèle. Images at War: Illustrated Periodicals and Constructed Nations. University of Toronto Press, 2006. Accessed here.

- Two engravings of the Gate of Sedan (I think these are the engraving referenced in Martin's book). Both depict a figure raising the white flag of surrender while standing on the gate, but in the first he is the main figure in the engraving, and the gate is mostly out of frame. In the second, he is a tiny figure with no distinguishable detail, standing atop the massive gate and viewed from a distance. The Gate itself is the main figure.

- The music used in the TNN is:
