For those interested in history those who wandered off to fight in Spain did absolutely nothing to defeat fascism. The fight against fascism began in 1938 when the reality that people like Churchill had been warning off as early as the mid-1930s was realised.
Chamberlain, the Prime Minister who Jom reckons no-one dare mention bought the time to allow the preparation that meant Britain was in some sort of shape to take on and defeat fascism in Germany and in Italy. Whether Spain and Portugal were fascist or not did not matter a jot - neither had any great ambition post war they were no different from any number of states.
If anyone doubts the above then address the points made NOT the person delivering the message.
