The course of Spanish History might well have been changed on Sunday 12th September 1948 on the second day of the fishing boat regatta being fought out at San Sebastian before the eyes of General Franco. A group of anarchists in exile had laid their plans that the chief of state should die in the waters of La Concha Bay beneath a hail of incendiary and shrapnel bombs dropped from a light aircraft... This is the story of that dramatic plan, expanded with original documents. This handsome edition includes a preface by Albert Meltzer on the Spanish Anarchist resistance; and tributes to Laureano Cerrada Santos, the anarchist militant, forger, and veteran of the French Resistance who planned the attack, and Antonio Tellez (1921-2005), the first and greatest historian of the Spanish anarchist resistance - penned by Stuart Christie.
