In previous episodes we’ve touched upon the Spanish civil war, when the war came to an end there was a large number of displaced Spanish living in France and to a less extent other Europe countries. With the second world war looming, the French began to recruit these displaced men into their armed forces. When France fell in 1940 a sizeable number found themselves in Britain, where they were recruited into the British Army. But they weren’t just in Britain, in North Africa and the Middle East Spaniards signed up to fight with the British. In this episode, Angus is joined by military historian and Hispanist Séan Scullion to explore who these men were and their stories.
