Interview with Giles Tremlett about his book The International Brigades: Fascism, Freedom and the Spanish Civil War. Describes in three scenes the International Brigades gathered to fight in the Spanish Civil war: Barcelona on July 19, 1936, the day that the (failed) coup launched by General Franco and others reached Barcelona; Paris in October 1936, as young men (including famous writers) gathered from various countries to travel to Marseilles; and Madrid in November 1936, as the same men march in uniform to the University City, which will soon become the front line.
