Description: 

After their marriage, Linda and Barton Kohl travel to Spain to fight in the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). In that conflict the fascist governments in Germany and Italy supported General Francisco Franco's Nationalist forces - using the occasion to try out many of the tactics and weapons they would soon deploy in the Second World War. Linda and Barton are among the many foreign volunteers who fight on the losing side, described by an F.B.I. agent as "the Loyalist Communist army" (260), which received support from the Soviet Union.
