Synopsis

One of the greatest novels of the 20th century by one of the greatest writers in American history



High in the pine forests of the Spanish Sierra, a guerrilla band prepares to blow up a vital bridge.



Robert Jordan, a young American volunteer on the republican side of the Spanish Civil War, has been sent to handle the dynamiting.



There, in the mountains, he finds the dangers and the intense comradeship of war. And there he discovers Maria, a young woman who has escaped from Franco's rebels. It is in these desperate days that his fate will be set.

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in Chicago in 1899 as the son of a doctor and the second of six children. After a stint as an ambulance driver at the Italian front, Hemingway came home to America in 1919, only to return to the battlefield - this time as a reporter on the Greco-Turkish war - in 1922. Resigning from journalism to focus on his writing instead, he moved to Paris where he renewed his earlier friendship with fellow American expatriates such as Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. Through the years, Hemingway travelled widely and wrote avidly, becoming an internationally recognized literary master of his crat. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, following the publication of The Old Man and the Sea. He died in 1961

Customer Reviews

Rereading it after some 40 years it is still an enjoyable book.Hemingway's usual macho attitude which usually drives me up the wall,is softened by the surprising tenderness of the love story.
