Books Info:

Doves of War free pdf Love, war, duty, faith, betrayal and belief - an alternative view of the Spanish Civil War through the eyes and experiences of the women who endured it. Here are the stories of four extraordinary women whose personal histories should dispel any illusions that the Spanish Civil War was an all-male war. Theirs are human dramas in which moral issues, right and wrong, Fascism and Communism, melt away. Pip Scott-Ellis fell in love with a Spanish prince and set off for Madrid in a chauffeur-driven limousine. She ended up nursing in front-line Francoist hospitals. Nan Green, by contrast, travelled to war third class. Leaving her children behind in England, she went to fight for the International Brigade. Margarita Nelken was an art critic and novelist, who had translated Kafka into Spanish. Denounced as a whore by the Catholic Right, she became a radical politician. Mercedes Sanz-Bachiller, a fascist, miscarried her baby after hearing that her husband had been killed in the fighting. She then went on to set up a welfare organisation that was to change the face of Spain.
