Bob Doyle was born in Dublin's inner city in 1916. After a poor childhood he joined the ranks of the unemployed in the 1930s. Inspired by the Spanish Civil War he entered that country in 1937 and joined the International Brigade to fight against Franco. Captured by the Fascists, he spent many months in a prison camp, until he was released to the French as a prisoner exchange. He did not forget Spain, returning to take part in the underground anti-Franco resistance. He was there with other veterans of the International Brigade to celebrate the return of democracy after Franco's death. Brigadista is a lively, sometimes humorous memoir. The book provides an incomparable insight into the life of one man and the age in which he lived.
