Doves of war : four women of Spain by Paul Preston( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Much has been written about the Spanish Civil War's effects on Spain and its citizens, but little attention has been paid to the women involved in the conflict. In this biographical work, Paul Preston tells the forgotten war stories of four exceptional women of different nationalities, backgrounds, and ideologies whose lives were starkly altered by the war." "The portraits in this volume mirror the war itself, with the left pitted against the right. On the left are Margarita Nelken, the revolutionary feminist, writer, and politician who is juggling anxieties for her son and daughter with her frantic efforts to strengthen the Republican war effort against Franco; and Nan Green, the communist nurse who left her children behind in England to fight against fascism alongside her husband in the International Brigades. On the right are Mercedes Sanz-Bachiller, who, devastated by a miscarriage on hearing of her husband's death in battle, entered politics and became the most powerful woman in the Francoist zone; and Priscilla Scott-Ellis, the wealthy English socialite who traveled to Spain with the naive hope of marrying the Spanish prince she so unrequitedly loved, and stayed to help the fascist war effort as a nurse on the front lines." "Drawing on documentary materials, letters, diaries, and memoirs, Preston follows the four from birth to death to show how, as women, wives, and mothers, they were affected by the political struggles of the 1930s, and how their lives were traumatized and forever changed by the Spanish Civil War and its consequences. Despite their different nationalities, social origins, and beliefs, these remarkable women are linked by their courage, determination, intelligence, compassion, and readiness to make personal sacrifices for others."--Jacket
