    Hemingway and the Spanish Civil War: The Distant Sound of Battle by Gilbert H. Muller

    During the 1930s, no event was more absorbing or galvanizing to Ernest Hemingway than the Spanish Civil War. Hemingway was passionately devoted to the cause of the democratically elected Spanish Republic and he spent much of the war reporting from its front lines, producing a deeply political body of work that illuminated the conflict and presaged the world war to come.
    In the end, his immersive journey into the turbulent world of the Spanish Civil War resulted in For Whom the Bell Tolls, a landmark in American political fiction. This book offers a fresh account of Hemingway’s adventures in Spain during the Civil War, stressing his embrace of radical political action and discourse in defense of the Republic against the forces of Fascism. On the eightieth anniversary of For Whom the Bell Tolls, Gilbert H. Muller reconsiders Hemingway as an engaged artist, political actor, and visionary.

      Great film I need to watch again, book above is motivating me.

      The powerful story of the war-torn romance between literary giant Ernest Hemingway and trailblazing war correspondent Martha Gellhorn.

          My opinion is that what he wrote about the Spanish Civil war is still good - as fiction based on reality. As long as you remember it's fiction (albeit based on history), it's worth reading. I guess the same applies to movies about anything historical, so to this movie too.
