What type of Foreign Volunteer are you?

People have always been drawn to fight in "Other People's Wars" for ideological, religious or nationalist reasons as well as for money and adventure. In the last 100 years Foreign Volunteers have flocked to fight in wars and revolutions. During the 1920's an International Brigade fought against the Red Army. In the 1930's the Internationalists fought in the Spanish Civil War. The 1960's to the 1980's was the golden age of the Mercenary Armies and Marxist Guerrillas in the wars over former colonies. The 1990's saw hundreds of volunteers drawn to the wars in Croatia and Bosnia fighting a very messy conflict. More recently the conflict in East Ukraine and the war against ISIS has drawn "Soldiers of Conscience", Foreign Volunteers of all backgrounds to fight in wars for no financial reward.
