The Spanish civil war exploded when the core of the Spanish character, forged over centuries, was assailed by the actions of new but misguided ideas in conflict with the Spanish spirit. Manolo is a living ghost of childhood lost, brought about by the horror of the war, that left the Country scarred for many decades. Wounds, which will never quite heal. It is through his eyes, the eyes of a ten-year-old child, that the consequences of such tragic conflict are viewed. Together with his friends, two boys and a girl of the same age, he transports us to the days, back in history, when death was around the corner and was accepted as the norm; when threats to innocent lives easily became a quick step to execution for the most trivial reasons; when food was scarce to the point of starvation. And amidst this turmoil Manolo survived as a refugee of adversity.

    MANOLO. A CHILD IN THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR is a unique example of the reality and fatal consequences of a civil war. This narration is unique and true to life as events are seen through the eyes of a child who between his seven to ten yeas of age lived in Madrid. Manolo speaks to the readers through the pages of this memoir, bringing to their notice, facts that many have decided to confine to silence or to distort in favour of their own ideas. The writer does not mince words to describe soul wrenching episodes exposing reality in the raw. The style is simple , so that what is written can be understood clearly, not allowing the possibility for doubt. The text is peppered with a mixture of joy and sadness. and the three years of hell that enveloped Manolo's childhood,are related with pace and an immense sense of detail. In MANOLO. A CHILD IN THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR there is invaluable material for a film.
