Read full description of the books Durruti: The People Armed:This is an especially sympathetic biography on Buenaventura Durruti. Overall, it is an excellent view of the the build up to the social revolution in Spain up to 19 July 1936 and following up to Durruti's fatal gunshot wound on 19 November 1936 as well as the various intriguing and inconsistent information about how he died after he died 20 November 1936. What makes this particular book exceptional is due to the fact that Paz was a partisan in the Libertarian Youth during the Spanish Revolution. One of the best things about this biography also is that it doesn't paint Durruti as some kind of super leader but shows him as one of many of the heroic partisans during this time. I believe that it is also a handy bit of information in understanding the eventual rise of fascism leading up to World War 2 because the fascists pretty much got their warm up in this conflict.
