Ireland, 1920. Damien O'Donovan is leaving for London for an internship, until the dreaded Black and Tans attack his hurling mates, killing one for not speaking English. Thus sidetracked by the Irish War for Independence, Damien is convinced by his brother Teddy to throw his lot in with the IRA.

"It is 1936 and the Spanish army, led by the fascist General Franco, is trying to wrest control from the democratic government. The Republican loyalists ... struggle desperately against the uprising. David ... makes his way to Spain as a volunteer, where he joins an English-speaking section of the militia"--Case-slip
