Format: Hardcover
An excellent collection of four notebooks compiled by Alvah Bessie during his service in Spain. This book is full of everyday detail - what he eats, the weather, observations on his colleagues, diagrams of how his unit is deployed, and comments on the political situation in Europe as a whole. It is a very human account including copies of his letters from home, and his thoughts for his family while so far away. A must-have for anyone interested in the SCW at front-line level.
