Soldiers of Salamis,
This review is from: Soldiers of Salamis (Paperback)
Although this is a good and thoroughly absorbing book, Cercas' political bias is unfortunate. Predictably, by the end, the Falangist writer is portrayed as the amoral coward, whereas the Communist war veteran is the 'saviour of civilisation'. It's a pity, because Cercas' initial objectivity is refreshing and almost exciting. Nevertheless, it's stil well worth reading.

I so want to enjoy this book but this translation is awful. I would truly love to find an alternative as I feel the book's worth has been buried in disconnected babble and nonsense. any ideas if another translation exists?
