Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter describes the struggles faced by the people during the war in Spain. After a week or two in Orense, Eduardo embarked on the second stage of his service in the civil war, which implied drives from Corunna to Oviedo. He was the youngest chauffeur in a group of convoys of a hundred buses, being only eighteen in October 1937. When he returned to Corunna after one of these journeys, Eduardo found that his class of 1940 was being called up and he accordingly detached himself from the convoy system to Asturias, which would soon come to an end anyway because the national armies gained a complete victory there, coming in from the east. After some weeks of training in Corunna, his battery was dispatched to Navalvillar de Pela and Casas de Don Pedro in Extremadura.
