Overview


This absorbing autobiographical novel narrates the heroic participation of North American volunteers in the Spanish Civil War fighting to overthrow fascism in Spain and, ideally, throughout Europe. The parallel narratives of two very different soldiers, Leo Rogin and Mitch Castle, are woven together seamlessly to tell the story of the war surrounding them. Their experiences reveal—beyond the specific conflict and ideology—the complex psychology hidden within attitudes that are as heroic as cowardly, as idealistic as dogmatic.

Esta novela autobiográfica absorbente y de rara ecuanimidad narra la peripecia heroica de los voluntarios norteamericanos que lucharon junto a la República española para derrotar al fascismo en toda Europa. En este texto tramas paralelas están tejidas a partir de los soldados Leo Rogin y Mitch Castle. Dotados de muy diversa aptitud para la guerra, sus experiencias revelan—más allá del conflicto específico y de cualquier ideología—la complejidad psicológica que se esconde tras actitudes tanto heroicas como cobardes, idealistas como dogmáticas.
