To Make The People Smile Again - George M. Wheeler George Wheeler epitomized the generation of concerned people in the 1930s who chose to actively challenge European fascism by fighting for the Republican government in Spain against Franco during the 1936-39 Civil War there. He left his job as a wood-machinist in London to take up arms with the International Brigades in Spain. The story he tells is a compelling one, which I would recommend to any reader interested in the struggle for social justice in a war-torn society.
