by Knight, Cranston Sedrick
The poems in La are are about the impact of Spain on La Brigada, the American unit that fought in the Spanish Civil War. As Cranston Knight states, the poems are about "those who struggled in a time vortex to save millions in a forgotten war, a forgotten country." To bridge the cultural and language gap in the telling of these stories, Knight includes a selection of the book's poems in both English and Spanish.
Cranston Knight is a professor of history at Malcolm X College. He is the author of Freedom Song, On the Borders of Hiroshima, and Tour of Duty: Vietnam in the Words of Those Who Were There.
