Summary
A sweeping history of the Spanish Civil War, told through nine American and British characters including Hemingway and George Orwell. It was a war between fascism, communism, and democracy that preceeded World War II, and a tale of idealism and a noble cause that failed
Summary
From 1936-39, news about the Spanish Civil War fired the imaginations of young men and women in other parts of the world, especially the U.S. and Britain. Thousands went to Spain to fight with the underdog Republicans, who were backed by the Soviet Union but ill-equipped and underfunded. Germany, Italy, and anti-Communist businessmen guaranteed the eventual success of Generalissimo Francisco Franco's Nationalists. In Spain in Our Hearts, acclaimed historian Adam Hochschild highlights the war's complexities and explores the personal perspectives of Americans who participated in the fighting. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
