    DescriptionIn 1937 a group of idealistic British volunteers sailed from England to fight the dark threat of dictatorship in Spain. In the olive groves of Jarama, near Madrid, they achieved the first victory against Franco's army. It was Fascism's first defeat. Hardly remembered today, it proved a crucial military turning point in the fight against Fascism. For the first time, Ben Hughes reconstructs the battle in a vivid blow-by-blow account, and considers its fascinating aftermath.

    Author Information
    Ben Hughes is the author 'CONQUER OR DIE! Wellington's Veterans and the Liberation of the New World' (Osprey 2010). Now an English Language lecturer and fluent in Spanish, he graduated from Leeds University in 1997, before spending several years teaching and travelling throughout South America. His passion for the continent and a lifelong interest in the Napoleonic era led to his first book, and his continuing fascination with Anglo-Hispanic relations has inspired this groundbreaking new book on Spain 's 20th century history, and the British who played a role in it. He now lives in North London with his Colombian wife.
