在西班牙内战中国际纵队的参与
 
在一九三六年七月十八日,西班牙陆军的主要将领对经过民选的人民阵线的西班牙政府进行了反抗,在数日之内,为了实现对国家的控制,国家陷入了与共和党叛乱的民族主义者的内战之中。世界上各国不同的国家对西班牙所处的置之不理,甚至通过支持不干预冲突来阻碍共和党人。然而,许多人开始来帮助共和党。国际队的,最终几乎包括来自全世界五十三个不同国家的超过四万名的男性和女性。
 
国际纵队作为开始成立的想法始于一九三六年的七月和八月,但很快它就成为了共产国际的主要核心工作(以培养传播共产主义世界性的责任为主体)。每一个共产党员都被要求作为志愿者通过火车或轮船送往西班牙,大约百分之六十的志愿者是共产党,但非共产党员也同样受到欢迎。
 
The involvement of the International Brigades in the Spanish Civil War 
 
On the 18 July 1936, leading Generals of the Spanish Army led a revolt against the democratically elected Popular Front government of Spain. Within days the country was plunged into civil war with the Republicans fighting the insurgent Nationalists for control of the country. The various democracies of the world turned their backs on Spain's plight and even hindered the Republicans by supporting non-intervention in the conflict. However, many people came to help the Republic. Las Brigades Internacionales, the International Brigades, would eventually include almost 40,000 men and women from 53 different countries, from all around the world. 
 
The International Brigades began as an idea in July and August of 1936, but soon its formation became the main work of the Comintern (the body with the responsibility of fostering the world-wide spread of Communism). Each Communist party was instructed to raise volunteers who would be sent to Spain by train or boat. Around 60% of the volunteers were Communists, but non-Communists were also welcomed. The first group of recruits came to Spain by train from Paris, and arrived at their base in Albacete, halfway between Madrid and Valencia, on the 14th of October. 
 
It was there that the 500 French, German and Polish recruits began training. The theme of the recruitment propaganda was based on the slogan that Spain should be "The grave of European Fascism", and with this in mind volunteers continued to flow into Spain from France. One of the organisers of recruits in Paris was the future Marshal Tito - Joseph Broz. In Albacete the volunteers were organised into language groups and the base was put under the command of Andre Marty. The Brigades were to be led by General Emilio Kleber and intensive training was to take place in the base before going to the front. #p#分页标题#e#
 
The International Brigades baptism of fire came on the 8th of November 1936, when the XIth and XIIth Brigades went to the Madrid front. They numbered about 3,500 men altogether, and were extremely important to the defence of Madrid. The fighting in Madrid eventually reached stalemate and the Brigades were transferred to other fronts. The XI, XIII and XV Brigades fought at the Brunete offensive of July 1937, where losses were very high, and where Oliver Law, the Afro- American commander of the Lincoln Battalion was killed. The Brigades also played a major part in the Aragon offensive of August 1937, and were formally incorporated into the Republican Army around this time. The Brigades were also present at the Battle of Teruel in early 1938, and the final battle in which they took part was at the Ebro, where 75% of International Brigade members who had crossed the Ebro River were killed. 
 
Although General O'Duffy's assistance to Franco is the most famous Irish involvement in the Spanish Civil War, there were also Irishmen who fought on the Republican side in the conflict. "Red Rule in Spain" was the headline of the Irish Independent following the victory of the Popular Front Coalition in Spain in February 1936. The atmosphere in Ireland, due to the church's support of Franco, ensured that the majority of people in Ireland were pro-Franco. However some people came out in support of the Republicans, and in September 1936 the decision was made by the small Communist party of Ireland to form an Irish unit of the International Brigades. By December 1936 a small group of volunteers led by Frank Ryan was on its way to Spain. This first group included Jack Nalty of Dublin and Kit Conway of Tipperary, both former I.R.A men and Communists. Ryan told an Irish Press reporter that going to Spain was "A demonstration of the sympathy of revolutionary Ireland with the Spanish people in their fight against international Fascism". 
 
On arrival in Spain, the former I.R.A men did not require much training and went into battle on the Cordoba front in the Christmas of 1936. They were led into their first battle, which took place in an olive grove on the Cordoba front, by Kit Conway. They were then transferred to the Madrid front, and at the end of January 1937, the badly depleted unit was returned to base to join the newly formed XV International Brigade. 
 
The Irish were split between the British Battalion and the Lincoln Battalion, in which they formed the "Connolly Centuria", or column. 
 
The Irish fought in the Battle of Jarama where they lost 19 men, including the well-loved Kit Conway. The Irish also fought in the Brunete offensive of July 1937, and at the Aragon offensive of August 1937. In Aragon the British were led by the Irishman, Peter Daley, and after his death by another Irishman Paddy O'Daire. The Irish also took part in the battle of Teruel in early 1938. Frank Ryan was captured near Gandesa on the 26th of March 1938. The final Battle in which the Irish fought was the Battle of the Ebro in July 1938. Just before the withdrawal, Jack Nalty was killed on the 23rd of September 1938. The total number of Irish volunteers who came to Spain was 145, of which 60 were killed. #p#分页标题#e#
 
On September 21st 1938, the Republican Prime Minister, Dr. Juan Negrin, announced the withdrawal of the International Brigades from Spain, in the hope that this would lead to the withdrawal of the Italian, German and Portuguese troops who were fighting for Franco. The remaining members of the International Brigades left Spain in December 1938 after a send-off in Barcelona, where Dolores Ibarruri, (La Pasionaria), made a speech in which she said to them, "We shall not forget you, and when the olive tree of peace puts forth its leaves again, come back ! ". 
 
The Republican side finally lost its battle with the Fascists on the 1st of April 1939, and the war that had cost hundreds of thousands of lives ended. Many of the International Brigade veterans were exiled from their home countries, or returned home to be labelled as "Reds", or "Premature anti- Fascists". Their bravery and sacrifice has been largely forgotten. However in November 1996, the people of Spain welcomed back the International Brigades, fulfilling La Pasionaria's promise. The "Homanje", as it was called, honoured over 400 veterans of the Brigades almost 60 years after they had left Spain. As one Spaniard commented, "Don't allow anybody to say that we Spaniards, even the youngest, don't remember and are not grateful".
