Most eyewitness accounts of the Spanish Civil War are, I suspect, no longer that widely read - probably only Laurie Lee's and George Orwell's nowadays. This one deserves to be read with them.

Jason Gurney was a sculptor who volunteered to fight in Spain; the injury he suffered there ended his career.
