Thread Name: New Zealand and the Spanish Civil War
Subject: RE: New Zealand and the Spanish Civil War
A literary connection - the hero of John Mulgan's novel "Man Alone" (maybe the best novel ever to come out of NZ) leaves to fight in the Spanish Civil War at the end. (Mulgan himself didn't, but went to fight with the Greek partisans in WW2, which was the nearest equivalent he could get to).
