Seven North East Lancashire men fought as International Brigade volunteers during the Spanish Civil War. Four came from Burnley, two from Nelson and one from Colne. Two were killed in action, four served with great distinction and one deserted. The pamphlet looks at the North East Lancashire volunteers and also covers an account of wider support for the Spanish Republic which existed in Lancashire and the radical cultural and ideological debates in Spain at that time.
