There are some books on history that are factually correct. They get all the dates in the right order and they aspire for objectivity and analysis. But they are about as exciting to read as the tea-leaves in the bottom of your flask.

This is a story of a movement and the man who fought to see it come to light. A man wanted in 24 countries around the world, a man who tried to rob the bank of Spain (Money Heist Version 1), a man who was as equally skilled an assassin, as he was at peeling potatoes. His name was Buenaventura Durruti and his job was to change the world.
The only book on the Spanish Civil War that features:
- Frankie Goes to Hollywood
- Lao Tzu
- George Orwell
- Emma Goldman
- Chomsky (Inevitably)
- Jack and the Bean Stalk
