The story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain, it tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. In his portrayal of Jordan's love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of El Sordo's last stand, in his brilliant travesty of La Pasionaria and his unwillingness to believe in blind faith, Hemingway surpasses his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms to create a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving and wise. Henry Fielding. Love and Ruin. Paula McLain. Wilbur Smith. Bob Woodward. Blue Horizon.

The plan has been manufactured in Madrid. It is another of Vicente Rojo, the unsuccessful professor's, masterpieces. I make the attack and I make it, as always, not in sufficient force. It is a very possible operation, in spite of that. I am much happier about it than usual. It can be successful with that bridge eliminated. We can take Segovia. Look, I show you how it goes. It is not the top of the pass where we attack. We hold that.

It is much beyond. Then, no matter what can happen, it was not me that talked. But you do know the one thing you must know about the bridge?

I know that. Let us now have a drink. So much talking makes me very thirsty, Comrade Hordan. You have a funny name in Spanish, Comrade Hordown.

If I had known how they pronounced Golz in Spanish I would pick me out a better name before I come to war here. Heneral Hotze. Now it is too late to change. How do you like partizan work? He grinned. Very scientific. It is only hearsay. I have never seen you do anything myself. Maybe nothing ever happens really. You really blow them? No, let us not talk any more about this bridge. You understand enough now about that bridge. We are very serious so we can make very strong jokes. Look, do you have many girls on the other side of the lines?

The more irregular the service, the more irregular the life. You have very irregular service. Also you need a haircut. He would be damned if he would have his head shaved like Golz.

I tease you. You are very different from me," Golz had said and filled up the glasses again. I never think at all. Why should I? I never think. Do not try to trap me into thinking. I am so serious is why I can joke.

Now drink this and then go. You understand, huh? That was the last he had seen of Golz with his strange white face that never tanned, his hawk eyes, the big nose and thin lips and the shaven head crossed with wrinkles and with scars.

Tomorrow night they would be outside the Escorial in the dark along the road; the long lines of trucks loading the infantry in the darkness; the men, heavy loaded, climbing up into the trucks; the machine-gun sections lifting their guns into the trucks; the tanks being run up on the skids onto the long-bodied tank trucks; pulling the Division out to move them in the night for the attack on the pass.

He would not think about that. That was not his business. That was Golz's business. He had only one thing to do and that was what he should think about and he must think it out clearly and take everything as it came along, and not worry.

To worry was as bad as to be afraid. It simply made things more difficult. He sat now by the stream watching the clear water flowing between the rocks and, across the stream, he noticed there was a thick bed of watercress. He crossed the stream, picked a double handful, washed the muddy roots clean in the current and then sat down again beside his pack and ate the clean, cool green leaves and the crisp, peppery-tasting stalks. He knelt by the stream and, pushing his automatic pistol around on his belt to the small of his back so that it would not be wet, he lowered himself with a hand on each of two boulders and drank from the stream.

The water was achingly cold. Pushing himself up on his hands he turned his head and saw the old man coming down the ledge. With him was another man, also in a black peasant's smock and the dark gray trousers that were almost a uniform in that province, wearing rope-soled shoes and with a carbine slung over his back. This man was bareheaded. The two of them came scrambling down the rock like goats. They came up to him and Robert Jordan got to his feet.

Robert Jordan looked at the man's heavy, beard-stubbled face. It was almost round and his head was round and set close on his shoulders. His eyes were small and set too wide apart and his ears were small and set close to his head. He was a heavy man about five feet ten inches tall and his hands and feet were large. His nose had been broken and his mouth was cut at one corner and the line of the scar across the upper lip and lower jaw showed through the growth of beard over his face.

The old man nodded his head at this man and smiled. He did not like the look of this man and inside himself he was not smiling at all.

Robert Jordan unpinned a safety pin that ran through his pocket flap and took a folded paper out of the left breast pocket of his flannel shirt and handed it to the man, who opened it, looked at it doubtfully and turned it in his hands. So he cannot read, Robert Jordan noted. The old man pointed to the seal and the man with the carbine studied it, turning it in his fingers. The other is the General Staff. But here no one commands but me," the other said sullenly.

He handed back the paper to Robert Jordan and looked him over. I have use for dynamite. How much have you brought me? What is your name? The man with the carbine looked at them both sullenly. I have heard much good of you," said Robert Jordan.

I bring you greetings from the General Staff. Robert Jordan registered that he was not taking any of the flattery. Where are you from? What are you going to do with the dynamite? You cannot blow bridges close to where you live.

You must live in one place and operate in another. I know my business. One who is alive, now, after a year, knows his business. Do you wish to help us with the sacks? The old man turned toward him suddenly and spoke rapidly and furiously in a dialect that Robert Jordan could just follow.

It was like reading Quevedo. Anselmo was speaking old Castilian and it went something like this, "Art thou a brute? Art thou a beast? Yes, many times. Hast thou a brain? Now we come for something of consummate importance and thee, with thy dwelling place to be undisturbed, puts thy fox-hole before the interests of humanity. Before the interests of thy people. I this and that in the this and that of thy father.

I this and that and that in thy this. Pick up that bag. If you make a disturbance here, we will be hunted out of these mountains. It is only by doing nothing here that we are able to live in these mountains. It is the principle of the fox. He knew that sadness and to see it here worried him. They skirted the edge of the little meadow and Robert Jordan, striding easily now without the pack, the carbine pleasantly rigid over his shoulder after the heavy, sweating pack weight, noticed that the grass was cropped down in several places and signs that picket pins had been driven into the earth.

He could see a trail through the grass where horses had been led to the stream to drink and there was the fresh manure of several horses. They picket them here to feed at night and keep them out of sight in the timber in the daytime, he thought. I wonder how many horses this Pablo has? He remembered now noticing, without realizing it, that Pablo's trousers were worn soapy shiny in the knees and thighs. I wonder if he has a pair of boots or if he rides in those alpargatas, he thought.

He must have quite an outfit. But I don't like that sadness, he thought. That sadness is bad. That's the sadness they get before they quit or before they betray. That is the sadness that comes before the sell-out. Ahead of them a horse whinnied in the timber and then, through the brown trunks of the pine trees, only a little sunlight coming down through their thick, almost-touching tops, he saw the corral made by roping around the tree trunks. The horses had their heads pointed toward the men as they approached, and at the foot of a tree, outside the corral, the saddles were piled together and covered with a tarpaulin.

As they came up, the two men with the packs stopped, and Robert Jordan knew it was for him to admire the horses.

Sorting them out carefully with his eyes after he had seen them first together, Robert Jordan looked them over individually.

Now it is too late to change. How do you like partizan work? He grinned. Very scientific. It is only hearsay.

As they came up, the two men with the packs stopped, and Robert Jordan knew it was for him to admire the horses. Sorting them out carefully with his eyes after he had seen them first together, Robert Jordan looked them over individually. Pablo and Anselmo knew how good they were and while Pablo stood now proud and less sad-looking, watching them lovingly, the old man acted as though they were some great surprise that he had produced, suddenly, himself.

Robert Jordan slipped through between the double rope of the corral and slapped the buckskin on the haunch.

He leaned back against the ropes of the enclosure and watched the horses circle the corral, stood watching them a minute more, as they stood still, then leaned down and came out through the ropes. If it were to be anything it would have become so already.

There were two ordinary vaquero's or herdsman's saddles, like American stock saddles, one very ornate vaquero's saddle, with hand-tooled leather and heavy, hooded stirrups, and two military saddles in black leather. They had dismounted to ask papers of the driver of a cart. We were able to kill them without injuring the horses. It was a very rare name.

Something like that. What has become of him? What is the matter with you, man? What hast thou in the stomach? It was as though he were talking to himself. He looked at the horses gloomily. I see them always stronger, always better armed. Always with more material. Prefer the physical book? Check nearby libraries with:. Copy and paste this code into your Wikipedia page. Need help?
