"Toulouse, Summer 1939. Carmen de Pedro, responsible for the decimated French Spanish Communists, crosses with Jesús Monzón, a lesser member of the party without her intuition, returning home with an ambitious plan. A few years later, in 1944, Monzón, has become her partner and organized the most disciplined group of the Resistance against the German occupation. The resistance group prepares the Spanish National Union and has an army of men ready to invade Spain. Among them is Galán, who has fought in the Association of Spanish guerrillas and believes, like many others in the fall of 1944, after the Allied landings and the withdrawal of the Germans, it is possible to establish a Republican government in Vielha. Not far from there, Inés is reclusive and guarded by her brother, provincial delegate of Falange in Lleida. Inés has suffered all the calamities from supporting the Republican cause during the war alone in Madrid, but now, when she hears the announcement of the secret operation on Radio Reconquest of the Spanish Pyrenees, Inés finding courage and a secret joy, decides to leave behind the worst years of her life."--Cataloger translation of book back cover

Los pacientes del doctor García by Almudena Grandes( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in Spanish and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tras la victoria de Franco, el doctor Guillermo García Medina sigue viviendo en Madrid bajo una identidad falsa. La documentación que lo libró del paredón fue un regalo de su mejor amigo, Manuel Arroyo Benítez, un diplomático republicano al que salvó la vida en 1937. Cree que nunca volverá a verlo, pero en septiembre de 1946, Manuel vuelve del exilio con una misión secreta y peligrosa. Pretende infiltrarse en una organización clandestina, la red de evasión de criminales de guerra y prófugos del Tercer Reich que dirige desde el barrio de Argüelles una mujer alemana y española, nazi y falangista, llamada Clara Stauffer. Mientras el doctor García se deja reclutar por él, el nombre de otro español se cruza en el destino de los dos amigos. Adrián Gallardo Ortega, que tuvo su momento de gloria como boxeador profesional antes de alistarse en la División Azul, para seguir luchando como voluntario de las SS y participar en la última defensa de Berlín, malvive en Alemania, ignorando que alguien pretende suplantar su identidad para huir a la Argentina de Perón. Thriller y novela de espías, Los pacientes del doctor García es tal vez la historia más internacional y trepidante de Almudena Grandes, su narración más ambiciosa, en la que conecta acontecimientos reales y desconocidos de la segunda guerra mundial y el franquismo, para construir las vidas de unos personajes que no sólo comparten la suerte de España, sino también la de Argentina
