Description

Hemingway’s great novel of the Spanish Civil War

‘The world is a fine place and worth fighting for and I hate very much to leave it’

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, 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…

‘A sparse, masculine, world-weary meditation on death, ideology and the savagery of war in general’ Sunday Telegraph

‘One of the greatest novels which our troubled age will produce’ Observer

**One of the BBC’s 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**
