In today's episode, we are joined by author of the book Unlikely Warriors, and research fellow at the London School of Economics, Richard Baxell, to discuss the International Brigades in the Spanish Civil War. From how the Brigades were formed, to why and how people flocked to Spain, the battles they fought, and the people who served in them, we go in depth about how these men became History's Most Unlikely Warriors.
