Pistoleros!: The Chronicles of Farquhar McHarg
Volume 1: 1918
In Farquhar McHarg’s autobiography, a young boy from Glasgow finds himself in the middle of Barcelona’s revolutionary underworld at the tail end of World War I. Volume One chronicles McHarg’s liaisons between the British Secret Service Bureau and the Spanish anarchists. McHarg tells of a corrupt Spanish regime bent on crushing a rebellious working class and the generous and recklessly idealistic men and women who struggled to transform it after rejecting traditional party politics. When a lifelong friend and fellow anarchist was gunned down, McHarg raced to write this epic history before he too could be silenced. This unique, first-person account of revolutionary activities in 20th-century Europe gives rare perspective and insight into modern revolutionary history.
