The Forging of a Rebel
The Forging of a Rebel
By Arturo Barea
Reynal, 1946, 739 pp

Barea, a Socialist and patent agent, was press censor in Madrid during much of the siege. Though only a third of this discerning and even-minded autobiography deals with the Civil War era, it is nonetheless interesting as a reflection of life in modern Spain.
