One of the classic novels of the 20th century, it is the story of one outsider struggling to find himself and his place in the midst of war.
It is the Spanish Civil War. Robert Jordan, an American professor and demolitions expert, is sent across enemy lines to lead a rag-tag band of Guerillas in a mission to blow up a bridge as part of a surprise offensive by the republicans. The mission, which should be straightforward, is thrown into increasing chaos as more and more complications arise – starting, much to Jordan’s surprise, with him falling in love. Often considered one of Hemmingway’s best novels, it explores themes including death, masculinity, the horrors of modern warfare, and the nature of politics and belief.
