Renegades

Canadians in the Spanish Civil War

Book - 2008
Rate this:
Between 1936 and 1939, almost 1,700 Canadians defied their government and volunteered to fight in the Spanish Civil War. They left behind punishing lives in Canadian relief camps, mines, and urban flophouses to confront fascism in a country few knew much about. Michael Petrou has drawn on recently declassified archival material, interviewed surviving Canadian veterans, and visited the battlefields of Spain to write the definitive account of Canadians in the Spanish Civil War. Renegades is an intimate and unflinching story of idealism and courage, duplicity and defeat.

I learned a good deal about that war Canadians whose role may have been exagerrated.
I would rate it at 3 stars, whereas this author's next book, "Is this your first war?" is excellent.
