In episode 4 of our Wilson Institute Speaker Series, Self-Isolation Edition, we talk to Tyler Wentzell about his latest book: Not for King or Country: Edward Cecil-Smith, the Communist Party of Canada, and the Spanish Civil War, which was published in January 2020. His book tells the story of Edward Cecil-Smith, the commander of the Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion, during the Spanish Civil War.
