Abstract:

"One of the great events in history as seen in a collection of personal accounts, letters, official reports, court proceedings, reporters' dispatches, diaries, and captured archives that present a richly detailed mosaic of the conflict which shook the world and ushered in World War II. Viewed through the eyes of such participants and observers as Malraux, Orwell, Koestler, Herbert Matthews, Arturo Barea, who came to fight and who reported superbly about what they had witnessed. Here is the Spanish Civil War as it really was, as it appeared to participants from all over the world"--Provided by publisher.
