Today, we are joined by Scott Ramsay and Stephen Rainbird, PhD students at University of Leeds, who are researching Anglo-Iberian relations, to discuss Britain's role in the Spanish Civil War. We take an in depth look at British foreign policy during the Civil War and its aftermath and ask: Was Perfidious Albion responsible for Franco's victory and survival in Spain?

Thanks so much to Scott and Stephen for coming on the show. You can find an article from Scott on this topic here: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/09592296.2020.1721059
