This is the first poetry anthology solely devoted to poems written by International Brigade volunteers. Fully illustrated and with extensive notes, the collection conveys the idealism and anguish felt by the men and women who risked their lives to defend democracy against the rise of fascism in Europe.
"the most moving, inspirational collection of poetry I have read in many years … What is it about the International Brigaders that makes their memory and the recall of their political humanity so relevant today? Courage, a loyalty to the best within us, a political imagination that thinks with the heart: the list is long. These qualities shine from this collection, which ought to be required reading in every school."
"This moving collection of evocative poetry is a fitting tribute to those who had the bravery and foresight to join the battle against fascism in Spain"
