About The Book

A study of the Welsh people's experience - ideological, political and cultural - of the Spanish Civil War, dealing not only with the war years (1936-39), but also the background and aftermath. It makes significant use of archival material and the testimony of International Brigade volunteers.


'well researched and documented book.' Journal for the Study of British Cultures "Stradling's entertainingly-written book, based on painstaking research into archival and oral sources as well as newspapers, memoirs and secondary works, is likely to prove definitive in its field. It needs to be read by anyone interested in the International Brigades or the Communist Party of Great Britain as well as twentieth-century Wales." R.A.H. Robinson, University of Birmingham
