Ali, the Story of an Honourable Man

Hussein Yassin

The novel tells the story of the Palestinian Arab volunteers during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), men of high calibre who have been forgotten by history and the record of their deeds lost. Forty thousand foreign volunteers from 56 countries fought in the war. They were called the international volunteers fighting in the "International Brigades". Among these were five Palestinians, dedicated to the cause of freedom and justice. During the course of the novel, Ali, our hero, becomes an important military commander.
