The Good Fight


Despite spending the last few years researching the Spanish Civil War, this is my first post on it. I hope to have many more in future, including some on lesser known volunteers in the International Brigades. For now, check out this excellent documentary about Americans who fought in Spain. For reading material, I can thoroughly recommend Peter Carroll’s very readable and informative Odyssey of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade. Also check out the webpage for the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives, and their online magazine, the Volunteer. From an Irish angle, Bill Bailey who features heavily in this documentary, was born to Irish parents in New York. Bailey was a go to guy for documentaries and books on the Lincolns, as one can see from the extracts here. One can read his autobiography here. Enjoy!
