  • 1983 ----- color ----- 98 min ----- 16mm
  • In one of history's most dramatic expressions of international solidarity, 40,000 volunteers from around the world went to fight against the armies of Franco, Hitler and Mussolini in the Spanish Civil War. Tells the story of the 3,200 Americans who went to Spain to fight facism, five years before the U. S. entered World War II. Features eleven remarkable Lincoln veterans--soldiers and nurses--who have lost none of their youthful conviction, passion and irreverence. They describe in deeply personal terms why they went, what they believed in then--and now--and how their decision has affected the rest of their lives.
