From the bestselling, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb, “The most extraordinary book about the Spanish Civil War ever encountered”--Washington Post.
The Spanish Civil War (1936–39) inspired & haunted a great number of artists & writers, including Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Martha Gellhorn, Ernest Hemingway, Geo Orwell & John Dos Passos. The idealism of the cause—defending democracy from fascism at a time when Europe was darkening toward another world war—& the brutality of the conflict inspired some of their best work: Guernica, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Homage to Catalonia, The Spanish Earth. The war spurred breakthroughs in military & medical technology as well. New aircraft, new weapons, new tactics & strategy all emerged during this time. Progress arose from horror: the doctors & nurses who volunteered to serve with the Spanish defenders devised advances in battlefield surgery & blood transfusion. In those ways & in many others, the Spanish Civil War served as a test bed for WWII & for the entire 20th century.
From John James Audubon's life to the invention of the A-bomb, readers have relied on Rhodes to explain, distill & dramatize crucial moments in history. Now, goes into battlefields & bomb shelters, into art studios, into crowded war hospitals, & into the hearts & minds of a rich cast of characters to show how the ideological, esthetic & technological developments that emerged in Spain changed the world forever.
Hell & Good Company is vivid & emotive…thrilling reading”--The Wall Street Journal
