Abel Paz was a young paperboy when Francisco Franco landed an army of mercenaries in Andalusia, igniting the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39. At that moment, he writes, "Everyone could see that one world had died, and that another had been born. Nothing could ever be the same." Paz joined an anarchist commando and fought on several fronts, battling communists and fascists alike. In the wake of the fascist victory, Paz was imprisoned for 11 years. Long afterward he wrote a short memoir to accompany photographs he and others had taken. The result is an extraordinarily rich, firsthand view of the conflict that will appeal to readers of George Orwell's like-minded Homage to Catalonia.
