Written with ardour and intelligence, the letters of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in global struggle II convey the uncooked idealism of anti-fascist infantrymen who skilled the warfare in boot camps, cockpits, and foxholes, yet by no means overlooked the good international concerns at stake.

When the U.S. entered international warfare II on December 7, 1941, just one workforce of yank infantrymen had already faced the fascist enemy at the battlefield: the U.S. veterans of the Lincoln Brigade, a volunteer military of approximately 2,800 women and men who had enlisted to protect the Spanish Republic from army rebels in the course of the Spanish Civil conflict (1936-1939). They fought at the wasting side.

After Pearl Harbor, Lincoln Brigade veterans enthusiastically joined the U.S. military, welcoming this moment likelihood to struggle opposed to fascism. even though, the Lincoln recruits quickly encountered suspicious army leaders who puzzled their patriotism and denied them promotions and out of the country assignments, foreshadowing the political persecution of the postwar purple Scare. African American veterans who fought in absolutely built-in devices in Spain, confronted second-class therapy in America's Jim Crow military. however, the Lincolns served with contrast in each theater of the conflict and received a disproportionate variety of medals for braveness, commitment, and sacrifice.

The 154 letters during this quantity, chosen from millions held within the Abraham Lincoln Brigade files at NYU’s Tamiment Library, supply a brand new and specific viewpoint on elements of global conflict II.
