In 1937 James Neugass, a poet and novelist praised in the New York Times, joined 2,800 other passionate young men who travelled to Spain as part of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade - an unlikely mix of artists, journalists, industrial workers and intellectuals all united in their desire to combat European fascism. Published now for the first time, War Is Beautiful is poised to take its place among the best war memoirs and is a transcendent contemporaneous rendering of wartime Spain.

The title of the book was not chosen by the author but by an editor after the author died and his journal of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War was discovered by his sons. Should be read by everyone who might think war is a solution to political problems, the author experiences will persuade you it is not.
