   schema:description "A moment of war:A Moment of War is the magnificent conclusion to Laurie Lee's autobiographical trilogy begun in Cider with Rosie and As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning . It was December 1937 when the young Laurie Lee crossed the Pyrenees and walked into the bitter winter of the Spanish Civil War. With great vividness and poignancy, Lee portrays the brave defeat of youthful idealism in Auden's 'low dishonest decade."@en ;

For a year he tramped through a country in which the signs of impending civil war were clearly visible."@en ;
