Clean, tight, unmarked; very light wear to edges; otherwise spine straight and uncreased; appears unread; Between 1936 and 1939, almost 1700 Canadians defied their government and volunteered to fight in the Spanish Civil War. They left behind punishing lives in relief camps, mines, and urban flophouses to confront fascism in a country few knew much about. This book reveals who these men and women were, why they volunteered, how they lived and died, and how the Canadian government reacted to their decision to join another country's war illegally. An unflinching, intimate story of idealism and courage, duplicity and defeat.
