  • Nunca ha leído y nunca leerá una historia más grande que ésta.
    Cuando la haya leído, conocerá porqué no hay palabras en la lengua inglesa capaz de hacer justicia a esta ‘epopeya de valor inigualable en la historia’- la epopeya del Batallón Anglo-Irlandés de la Brigada Internacional en el Puente de Arganda: la epopeya de hombres británicos e irlandeses que 'soportaron el sufrimiento para posiblemente impedir que estas cosas sucedieran en nuestra tierra natal.‘
    Daily Worker, el 6 marzo 1937.
    You have never read and you never will read a story greater than this.
    When you have read it, you will know why there are no words in the English language capable of doing justice to this ‘epic of valour unequalled in all history’:- the epic of the Anglo-Irish Battalion of the International brigade at Arganda Bridge: The Epic of British and Irish men who ‘endured so that they might possibly prevent such things happening in our native land.’
    The Daily Worker, 6 March 1937.
