  • THE YEAR OF VICTORY is the second volume in Spanish of Eduardo de Guzmns riveting memoir, telling the story of Spains social revolution and Civil War, and the aftermath of the Francoist victory It gives an unputdownable first hand account of the tragic fate of defeated republican prisoners detained at the port of Alicante on 1 April 1939 Guzmns richly descriptive story of their gruelling three month odyssey which took them, from Alicante, through the horrors of the Los Almendros and Albatera concentration camps, to their ultimate destination, a sinister Falangist building in Madrids Calle de Almargo The book exposes the entire repressive apparatus of Francoist bloodlust in the aftermath of victory.The author was editor of the Madrid basedCastilla Libre, the daily newspaper of the revolutionary workers union, the National Confederation of Labour CNT , between February 1937 and March 1939 For me he is the Spanish Solzhenitsyn the chronicler and indicter of one of Europes most enduring and bloodsoaked fascist regimes, one that killed Spaniards than Hitler killed Germans Guzmns insights and painstaking descriptions of his fellow prisoners, guards, conditions of confinement the whole world of captivity had me gripped all the way, from the fall of Alicante until the moment he and his comrades are delivered into the hands of the triumphalist, spiteful secret police and Falangist captors My personal memories date from fourteen years after the events described here and are nowhere near as dramatic but all the same I recognise each and every one of the situations and characters oppressors and victims and empathise with the latter every step of the way One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich exposed the brutalities of Stalin s faraway prison system, Guzmns The Year of Victory does the same for Francos ignored gulag archipelago just the other side of the Pyrenees The pity is that this three volume Civil War masterpiece La muerte de la esperanza 1973 El ao de la victoria 1974 and Nosotros los asesinos memorias de la guerra de Espaa 1976 remains or less unrecognised in the very country whose history, vast areas of which still remain suppressed today, he tells so movingly.El ao de la victoria, Memorias de la guerra de Espaa Presenta la otra cara de la moneda, generalmente silenciada por historiadores de nuestra ltima contienda civil Se trata de un extenso reportaje descarnado sincero y veraz de la suerte corrida por los miles de republicanos que al finalizar la guerra fueron apresados en el puerto de Alicante Cuenta con impresionante verismo su estancia en los campos de concentracin de los Almendros y Albatera hasta su posterior traslado a sus puntos de origen esencialmente a Madrid.El ao de la victoria narra una historia triste y real por partes iguales la dolorosa odisea vivida en una primavera espaola por los hombres sobre quienes recayeron los sufrimientos de la derrota Memorias escritas hace largo tiempo en un lugar donde,la feliz expresin cervantina, toda incomodidad tiene su asiento, dicen lo que 1939 fue para aquellos a quienes la fortuna volvi la espalda para cuantos, por figurar entre los vencidos, no pudieron participar en la general alegra determinada por el final de una contienda fraticida.

    1. Peor que "nosotros los asesinos", aunque la ultima parte mejora y es buena. La descripción de las calamidades de los presos republicanos contadas en primera persona son magistrales. Libro para conocer en profundidad el comportamiento ético de los vencedores.
