American Revolution

The American Revolution changed history. It gave Americans their liberty. It inspired other revolutions. And it brought a new and very powerful country in to the world. In our podcast series we look at how the American Revolutionary War or the American War of Independence started, progressed and finished.

The Spanish Civil War

Our series on the Spanish Ciivil War looks at the war that tore Spain and Europe apart. It considers the events that led to Spain's Great War, and how the Great Powers of Europe played such a major role in it. The Spanish Civil War was so much more than just a domestic conflict. It involved battles between Communism and Fascism, Germany and the USSR. In short, it is of vital importance in understanding not just Spanish history, but also World War 2.
