Who would possibly sign up to fight for a different country in a war with no personal significance?

Bonnie’s regular podcast is Wining About Crime, and Minna’s is True Crime Finland. Do yourself a favor and go binge them. Now. Maybe twice.

Further reading on this case, if so inclined. (Though, no. I did not include a link to the Awful Awful Website. No.)
