In this episode, we are joined by Mark Seven of the Record of Arms Podcast to talk about one of the most important events in the history of both Spain and Morocco: The Rif War. We take a look at Spain's presence in North Africa before the war, the reasons it happened, the sheer brutality of the conflict itself and the impact it had on the people fighting it, and what impact it would have on Spain's future, both long term and short term.
