" The Spanish Civil War turned into an armed rehearsal for World War II when thousands were stirred to come from all over the world to take part. The struggle inflamed a whole generation: to some it was a chance to oppose the menace of Nazism and Fascism, to some it was a crusade against atheistic Communism, but to many it was a chance for adventure and escape from a world deadened by years of depression.." -- from the back panel blurb.
