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.
