Highlights from the ALBA site (1): World War II Letters

January 27, 2011

About a third of the 2,800 volunteers who left from the United States to help defend the Spanish Republic died in Spain. Of the survivors, many went on to fight fascism during World War II in the U.S. Armed Forces. An extensive selection of their letters home was published in 2006 as The Good Fight Continues. The ALBA website features a set of detailed lesson plans based on these letters.
