Why Franco & Spain stayed out of WW2 | TIK Q&A 28
Today we talk about Franco and Spain during the WW2 era, specifically looking into the reasons why Spain stayed out of WW2, their active neutrality (supporting the Axis side), and talking about the Blue Division. This is in response to my Patron, Dan Reed, who asked this question - "Can you talk about the Spanish Blue division? The Spanish were quite good at straddling the fence between England and Germany."I'm not a Fascist or anything similar, nor am I promoting said ideologies.

No seriously, what is it?" https://youtu.be/PvpJEc-NxVcHistory isn’t as boring as some people think, and my goal is to get people talking about it. I also want to dispel the myths and distortions that ruin our perception of the past by asking a simple question - “But is this really the case?”. I have a 2:1 Degree in History and a passion for early 20th Century conflicts (mainly WW2). I’m therefore approaching this like I would an academic essay. Lots of sources, quotes, references and so on. Only the truth will do.
