Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939 - Adam Hochschild

Republican and International Brigade soldiers, doctors and nurses, foreign correspondents, refugees, all in retreat if they are not gone already. meanwhile, sadly, German and Italian forces still busy testing out new weapons and aircraft in advance of an impending and seemingly inevitable global conflict spurred by Fascist aggression. Spanish Civil War as lethal lab experiment. the individual stories of many brave souls battling against savagery have been uplifting, though; now it's all just coming apart.
