Description

The end of the Civil War did not mean the beginning of peace for most of the Spanish people because it was not part of the victors plans to heal all wounds. From 1939 the ill-fated word was 'Purging'. Every Spaniard, whether victorious or defeated, was obligated to state that their past did not influence their willingness to live in the 'New Spain'. The Fascists were the conquerors and the Communists were outcast as 'bad seeds' with no opportunities in normal society. In the region of Axarquia Malaguena a group of Spanish Maquis tried to survive, maintaining their Republican ideals against intense pressures from the Franco regime. This is a story of two friends forced to fight on opposite sides under the irrationality of their circumstances, knowing that in war, there are no winners! "Silver Bullets is a historical novel about one of the cruelest periods in the history of Spain: The bloody aftermath of the Civil War (1936-1939). The history of the authors father is prodigiously documented, perfectly recounted and accompanied by photographs to further enhance the experience. A collective tragedy narrated with passion"show more
