Homage to Caledonia: Scotland and the Spanish Civil War

Homage to Caledonia (‘Important and powerful’ – Tony Benn) is the story of Scotland’s colossal role in Spain’s Civil War, a conflict many see as the first act of WWII. Gray uses letters sent back from the front and other primary sources to let those who were there give account of this incredible episode. He also paints a colourful picture of the impoverished yet politically effervescent Scotland of the 1930s, and brings to life forgotten stories of the heroic women at the center of the country’s efforts for the Spanish republic.
