Description

'A wonderful, beautifully written and important book'

- John MacKenna (Writer and Broadcaster)

This is history as you have never experienced it before. The Spanish Civil War. 1937.

Hear the high-velocity bullets as they whiz past you, the frightening rattle of machine guns, the heavy rumble of approaching tanks and the whine of enemy aircraft overhead. Hear the surprised and anguished cries of your comrades as they fall around you, dead or badly wounded.

'From Suir to Jarama' tells the story of a young Irish volunteer, Mossie Quinlan, during his eighty-three days in Spain with the British Battalion of the International Brigades - helping Spanish workers and peasants to defend their freedom and democracy against the onslaught of Fascism.

Travel into the country undercover with Mossie, train, eat, sleep and fight with him, until he dies heroically in the great Battle of Jarama, just outside Madrid.

Learn about Mossie's life and the ideals that brought him from Ireland to the slaughter of a Spanish battlefield. And ask yourself: When heroes die, what do they leave behind and do they take a portion of their family's life with them?

'From Suir to Jarama' is beautifully illustrated, with comprehensive source materials listed and a full index.
