Summary:

"For three crucial years in the 1930s, the Spanish Civil War dominated headlines in America and around the world, as volunteers flooded to Spain to help its democratic government fight off a right-wing coup led by Francisco Franco and aided by Hitler and Mussolini. It was a shockingly brutal war, but it was soon overshadowed by the world war that it helped introduce. Today it is mostly remembered through just a few classic accounts: Ernest Hemingway's novel FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS, George Orwell's memoirs, Robert Capa's photographs. But in SPAIN IN OUR HEARTS, Adam Hochschild presents equally compelling characters and weaves their stories together to reveal the full tragedy and importance of the war.... The Spanish Civil War was in many ways the opening battle of World War II, and we still have much to learn from it. SPAIN IN OUR HEARTS is Adam Hochschiled at his very best." -- from back cover.
