Format: Paperback
"They Shall Not Pass" is the autobiography of Dolores Ibarruri ("La Pasionaria" of the Spanish Civil War, known for her ability to make rousing speeches and come up with great little phrases "No Pasaran - They Shall Not Pass" being her most well known). Ibarurri was one of the leaders of the Spanish Communist Party and her autobiography is perhaps an unintentionally revealing self-portrayl of the sheer banality of evil. As other reviewers have mentioned, Ibarruri tells us a little about herself, but only a little. The remainder of the book is a sad illustration of the moral bankruptcy of Ibarurri and her ilk and perhaps also somewhat illustrative of why the Republicans lost the Spanish Civil War - and even more illustrative of just why Franco and the Nationalists were so much more determined to win unconditionally, being well aware of their fate if Ibarurri and her cohorts gained the victory.

The book's really worth reading as an example of just what the Nationalists were fighting against - as another reviewer mentioned,it's full of revolutionary songs, Ibarurri goes on and on about how the Republican forces were betrayed by the other non-Communist parties within the Republican grouping (conveniently forgetting perhaps that it was the Spanish Communist Party who launched the CivilWar within the Civil War, and that it was the Spanish Communists in military command positions who launched attacks which could only be described as insanely suicidal for purely political reasons).

Format: Paperback
They shall not pass is both a sad and informative commentary on the communist propaganda surrounding the Spanish Civil War. What begins as a sometimes touching autobiography soon descends into shameless promotion of the position of the communist party, and vicious slander against the anarchists and POUM. It is interesting if only as a testement to the lengths the communist party was willing to go in attacking their allies, in order to consolidate power in Republican Spain.
