The fight for the freedom of Loyalist Spain during the 1936-39 civil war pitted an International Brigade of 35,000 civilian soldiers from more than 50 nations against the well-equipped insurgents of Generalissimo Francisco Franco. Narrated by Studs Terkel, this film explores a significant gap in our history through its use of newsreels, photographs, interviews with Lincoln veterans, and Depression-era music. The 11 surviving veterans of the war who appear in this tough, stirring film, share a common pride in their sacrifices of 70 years ago when the rise of world fascism crushed the spirit of democracy in a tragic rehearsal for World War II.
