Synopsis

Another Hill AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL NOVEL by Milton Wolff

An insider's account of the grueling, shattering experience of the Americans who fought against fascism in the Spanish Civil War

Reviews

An in-the-trenches view of the Spanish Civil War... Impressively captures the minute-to-minute chaos of the trenches, as well as the grim inevitability of horrible death and suffering... As a memoir it is a gripping account of the bravery of non-military men fighting for a just cause. Kirkus The best book about war since ... All Quiet on the Western Front. Howard Fast Gritty realism and an eye for political complexity ... The muscular narrative provides valuable testimony of what it was like to fight Spain's rebel Nationalist troops, who enjoyed vastly superior weaponry and manpower supplied by Hitler and Mussolini, while the Western democracies passively looked on. Publishers Weekly

It's very well done, brought it all back, the grandeur and the betrayal. Arthur Miller

Engrossing; [Wolff] has an eye for significant detail and a gift for dialogue. Bernard Knox, New York Times Book Review

The best book so far about the American participation in Spain. And it might very well remain in permanent possession of that title. Ring Lardner Jr.

I have never read more intimate, convincing, and devastating accounts of combat... It is a moving, revealing, personal contribution to the great large story of la causa, as the Spaniards of the Republic called their war. - Martha Gellhorn

A fine novel and at the same time an historical document... It will fascinate students of the fiction on war. - Alan Wald, author of New York Intellectuals
