Published privately by the author in 1980. 90 pages. Paperback (S6920WSO)
This rare book examines the events of the Spanish Civil War, and the role played by the Welsh town and community of Neath (and it's people) in the Conflict. Chapters include:
- Neath prior to 1936
- Spain prior to 1936
- The Civil War - July to December 1936
- The International Brigade
- The Battle of Jarama
- The Spanish Blockade
- Neath and Spanish Aid
- Neath and the Basque Evacuees
- The Battles of Brunete and Teruel
- The Spanish Colony at Abercrave
- The Battle of the Ebro
Neath, as much as any place and more than most, reacted to the challenge of the Spanish conflict and to the political mood of the thirties. And a record of this response must surely occupy an important place in the pages of its history.....
The condition of the book is generally ok. The card covers have one or two very minor scuffs, and some light nibbling and wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
