The 31 known volunteers from Oxfordshire who laid their lives on the line during the Spanish Civil War are commemorated in a book co-written by a Deddington author.
No Other Way: Oxfordshire and the Spanish Civil War 1936-39 has been written by Chris Farman and Oxford residents Valery Rose and Liz Woolley.
It tells the story of the Aid for Spain movement in and around Oxford .
Most of the 31 who went to Spain joined the International Brigades.
Six of them – including Edward Cooper, an actor from Duns Tew – were killed fighting to defend the Spanish Republic against a fascist-backed military uprising.
Mr Farman said: “No Other Way has been a labour of love for its three authors and any profits we make will help to pay for a memorial to the Oxfordshire volunteers.”
The memorial has the support of Oxford City Council and will be unveiled in Bonn Square later this year.
