Product Description

1936 to 1939 were terrible years for Spain and countless other people all over Europe  who found themselves sucked into the quicksand of the bloody and bitter conflict, the Spanish Civil War. Captain Christopher Lance  known as the Spanish Pimpernel  saved lives and alleviated suffering. His great compassion for people in distress, especially those who were being hunted down for the murder squad, prompted him to take desperate risks on their behalf instead of enjoying a safe job in England.This stirring account of great adventure is full of danger and excitement and has the compelling quality that only true stories possess.

Hardback with dust jacket showing wear and tear – otherwise the book is good condition in view of its age (1960)
