Fountain, James. “The Notion of Crusade in British and American Literary Responses to the Spanish Civil War.” Journal of Transatlantic Studies 7, no. 2 (Summer 2009): 133-47.

Annotation

Analyzes the concept of crusade, both personal and political, that permeates literary responses to the war. Argues that For Whom the Bell Tolls lacks a political focus because Hemingway’s “main cause was to observe the conflict and gain new material for a novel, to mold a dramatic real-life backdrop for his fictional characters to inhabit.”
