The History Files #10: Foreign Intervention in Russia’s Civil War

43 mins - Published Wed, Apr 22, 2015 by Gordon Frye

In this episode of the History Files, we’re back in the Ukraine, but this time it’s in the midst of the turbulent Russian Civil War of 1917 to 1921.

Bonus material: Ever wonder what Gordon talks about “off mic”? Since the show ran a little short this week, we’ve included a little extra chatter at the end about rock stars who moonlight as defence analysts and the changing world of intelligence.
