This is history as you have never experienced it before. The Spanish Civil
Hear the high velocity bullets as they whiz past you, the frightening rattle

with him, until he dies heroically in the great Battle of Jarama, just
Learn about Mossie’s life and the ideals that brought him from Ireland to
the slaughter of a Spanish battlefield. And ask yourself: When heroes die,
what do they leave behind and do they take a portion of their family’s life
