The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) was initially an armed conflict between a democratically elected government and a revolt by far right-wing Spanish military officers led by Francisco Franco, who were supported by the fascist governments of Italy and Nazi Germany. Anti-fascist supporters flocked to Spain to help the beleaguered government, including over 3,000 American volunteers who formed the Lincoln Battalion of the International Brigades. Originally recorded in the 1940s, this album contains songs in English and Spanish by folk balladeer Pete Seeger, Tom Glazer, and Bess and Butch Hawes and in German by the anti-fascist singer Ernst Busch. The recording was re-released in 1961. Extensive liner notes include a history of the conflict and song lyrics.
