Child of the Spanish Civil War

eBook (PDF), 132 Pages
(2 Ratings)
Price: $9.99
More than a half-million Spaniards lost their lives in the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s, a bloody conflict that became the “proving grounds” for Nazi Germany’s plan for world domination. Neighbor battled against neighbor; friends and family members fought on opposing sides, and many perished as religious and political passions flared. In Child of the Spanish Civil War, Andres and his family find their lives torn apart as their small town in the mountains of Northern Spain becomes a battlefield. Dodging bullets and hiding from Nazis as they make their way across the ravaged countryside, they pay a dear price in their quest for freedom. Based on the true story of a young survivor, this book is a gripping account of one family’s struggle against almost impossible odds.

    Child of the Spanish Civil brings into the light the devastation and destruction of war, not only on that country but also on the families who live there. It was a brisk, heart-wrenching tale about a young boy, Andres, whose whole world - family, friends, and village - is utterly and profoundly changed by the Spanish Civil War (the center-left Republicans against the conservative right Nationalists). I actually didn't know much about the Spanish Civil War prior to reading this book so it really prodded me into learning more about this horrible conflict. My heart goes out to Andres and all that he had to go through as a child to get to where he is today (without giving too much away). I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm passing it on to my parents to read too.

    I didn't want to put this book down. I found it to be a page-turner and truly moving, especially when the author reveals at the end, that the events are based on the real-life experiences of her husband. History is so easily forgotten, but this book reminds us that these things did happen and we should not forget what others have endured.
