Meet "Burnt Face," "Bread Swallower" and "The Catalan" – just a few of the Anarchist militants of the resistance to Franco. Having survived the struggle against fascism in occupied France, they took the fight back to Franco's murderous system. They also paid the ultimate price, in ambushes by the ferocious Guardia Civil, facing the firing squad, or in the cells of the secret police.
Miguel García (1908-1981) was not a historian of the Anarchist resistance to Franco, but a participant. These biographies form a tribute to fallen comrades from one who very nearly joined them. They are also testimony to a struggle still scarcely known.
