In this introductory podcast episode to our series looking at the Syrian Civil War history and crisis we look at the circumstances and the man who shaped the foundations of modern Syrian – Hafiz al-Assad.
The Syrian Civil War history is the story of the most violent conflict of the 21st century (so far). In many ways this is the story of the continued collapse of the Middle East. It is also the story of a massive refugee crisis. It is the story of a war brought on by the effects of both geopolitics and the effects of climate change. Whether you already know a lot about the story or have been wanting to learn, the Syrian Civil War history podcast from the End of History is the perfect podcast series to enhance your knowledge and awareness of one of the world’s great crises of our generation.
