This is the introduction to the audio book by Producers Lesley Gist and William Loren Katz:

"In 2016 when one Presidential candidate has revived fascism’s many appeals to hate, THE LINCOLN BRIGADE story offers vital lessons. In 1936 General Francisco Franco’s fascist armies marched on Madrid, Spain, supported by planes and troops from Hitler’s Germany and Mussolini’s Italy. This was fascism’s first invasion of Europe and the U.S., England and France did nothing.

"Then 35,000 men and women from 53 countries -- who hated war and fascism -- formed International Brigades, their volunteer effort to "stop fascism at the gates of Madrid."

"The 2,800 American volunteers of The Lincoln Brigade were white and black, men and women, farmer and professor, student and unemployed. 

"Before 1936 the Lincolns had been active in support of racial equality, trade unions, aid for the poor and unemployment insurance.
