ABOUT THIS BOOK


“No man ever entered earth more honorably than those who died in Spain.”Ernest Hemingway


In 1937, Hank Rubin, a twenty-year-old Jewish pre-med student at UCLA, volunteered  for service in the International Brigades combating fascists in the Spanish Civil War. In his illustrated memoir, Rubin reflects on those events, making no apologies for his youthful impulsiveness, bravado, and ideology, but recalling the heroics and sufferings he witnessed and experienced in Spain, as well as the disappointing treatment he received upon his return.
