Fighting for Franco Book Description:

As a general rule, Keene (European studies, U. of Sydney) finds that volunteers from other countries to fight for the fascists spoke no Spanish before they arrived, and came only for the adventure. The ideologues among them, however, interpreted the Spanish Civil War in terms of struggles in their home countries and so had little inkling of conditions in Spain. The Nationalists, for their part. did not welcome foreigners, especially those with little to offer to the military effort. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.
