The International Bestseller of the Spanish Civil War - Winner of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize In the final moments of the Spanish Civil War, fifty prominent Nationalist prisoners are executed by firing squad. Among them is the writer and fascist Rafael Sanchez Mazas. As the guns fire, he escapes into the forest, and can hear a search party and their dogs hunting him down. The branches move and he finds himself looking into the eyes of a militiaman, and faces death for the second time that day. But the unknown soldier simply turns and walks away. Sanchez Mazas becomes a national hero and the soldier disappears into history. As Cercas sifts the evidence to establish what happened, he realises that the true hero may not be Sanchez Mazas at all, but the soldier who chose not to shoot him. Who was he? Why did he spare him? And might he still be alive?

He has succeeded, with one perfectly crafted book, in single-handedly redeeming the epic genre -- Alberto Manguel With irresistible directness and delicacy, Javier Cercas engages in a quick-witted, tender quest for truth and the possibility of reconciliation in history, in our everyday lives - which happens to be the theme of most great European fiction . . . a marvellous novel -- Susan Sontag This is a masterly parable of political violence, of suffering, but also, and decisevely, of the strange logic of compassion and healing . . . should become a classic -- George Steiner This is an important, fresh and original book ... Above all, it demonstrates how eloquent and exciting fiction is still capable of being. -- Eileen Battersby * Irish Times * Very few novels have the power to alter received opinion, but this marvellous book may well be one . . . A remarkable book. -- Anne Chisholm * Sunday Telegraph * A truly wonderful, magnificent novel. It is understanding, intelligent, compassionate . . . If you were required to read only one book about Spain and its civil war, this should be that book. -- Allan Massie * Scotsman. *
