WHILE AT WAR

LATEST REVIEWS
It’s July, 1936. Nationalist forces take to the streets of Salamanca, challenging the authority of the democratically elected Second Spanish Republic, and arresting the city’s mayor for the crime of being Republican. However, the esteemed Miguel de Unamuno author, professor, and rector, pays the uprising little mind: for all his wisdom and experience, this great man of letters doesn’t believe that his country is under imminent threat.

Initially defying his friends and family by publicly supporting the rebellion, it’s not until his colleagues are rounded up that Miguel begins to reconsider his principles, hoping he can exert his considerable influence to bring reason before it’s too late.
