Professor Fraser Ottanelli’s new co-authored book, Letters from the Spanish Civil War: A U.S. Volunteer Writes Home, was recently published by Kent State University Press. Letters from the Spanish Civil War, possibly the largest surviving collection of letters written by a U.S. volunteer during this conflict, provides a unique perspective into the motivations that led a young man from the American heartland to defy U.S. neutrality and travel to across the Atlantic to fight in defense of democracy. The detailed and candid descriptions of the daily reality of warfare in one of the first battlefields of World War II sought to inspire those back home to awaken the U.S. public opinion and policy makers to the global threat of Fascist expansionism.
