Unlikely Diplomats

This week at Activehistory.ca we posted the most recent episode of the History Slam Podcast. In this episode of the History Slam, I talk with Isabel Campbell about her book Unlikely Diplomats: The Canadian Brigade in Germany 1951-1964. We chat about the people who were chosen to serve, the strategic benefits of maintaining a presence in Germany, and the day-to-day challenges for the troops. We also discuss the mission in the wider context of the Cold War and the legacy of Canada’s German mission. Check out the full post here.
