The Effects of the Spanish Civil War on Britain in World War II

The Marx Memorial Library will be hosting a talk by Mike Brown on 21st November:

The Spanish Civil War is unusual in that, for those with political interests, it is one of the milestones of the twentieth century, while for most others it is barely a footnote. Yet it also had important effects on Britain outside politics. In this talk, Mike Brown traces its influence on various facets of Britain in World War II.

Mike Brown - biography: For 30 years Mike Brown taught history in several inner city comprehensives. In the absence of a book about the Home Front for his pupils, he decided to write one himself, and in doing so became something of an authority on the subject. Since then he has written many more books and he now works full time writing, giving talks, consultation and doing research.
