The Brits Who Fought For Spain

Issue No. 2144

These two 60 minute documentaries tell the story of seven British people who fought for the Republicans during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-9.

They joined 2,500 others from Britain who went to fight General Franco’s fascist forces, despite the British government’s lack of support.
