280 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs, map. "Crossing the ocean and braving hostile frontiers, they reached Spain as crusaders for freedom. The never-before told tales of Canadians who fought against fascism during the Spanish Civil War are revealed in this compelling book. Discover Canadian heroes such as Dr. Norman Bethune, who performed the world's first blood transfusion on the battlefield, Jean Watts, one of the few women to volunteer in the legendary International Brigades, and twenty-year-old Thomas Beckett, the first Canadian to die in the trenches. In ragged uniforms, with obsolete equipment, hundreds of Canadians fought to the death against a massive army equipped by Hitler and Mussolini." Minor edge wear.
