Description

The Spanish Civil War of the late 1930s was, in many ways, a dry run for the barbarities of the Second World War. The conflict pitted the forces of the Spanish Republic and their allies on the radical left against the Nationalists and their fascist backers. One of the most significant figures on the left at the time was Buenaventura Durruti, a veteran revolutionary and leading libertarian socialist. As clashes between the Nationalists and Republicans heated up, Durruti led anarchists against military forces in the Barcelona region and, later, in the defense of Madrid where he was killed in late 1936. We speak to Brenton Lengel, the author of a new graphic novel depicting Durruti’s life about who Durruti was, his historical significance, and how we might assess his legacy?
