In the countryside near Bordeaux, France, a group of civilians thinking of volunteering to fight in Ukraine are getting a crash course in modern warfare. In just two days, they are hoping to learn skills that could help them survive on the battlefield, from handling weapons to basic military tactics. However, some are starting to doubt their ability to be of use in a warzone, while others feel their new skills could come in handy even if they remain in France.
