#OnThisDay 1937 Two Irishmen, Lt Tom Hyde (Cork) & Lt Dan Chute (pic) were killed while serving in the Irish Brigade during the Spanish Civil War. The Irish were fired upon by friendly pro-Franco forces from the Canaries who did not recognise the uniforms.
I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now.
I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in.
Hope you enjoy.
