Description - For a Sack of Bones by Lluls-Anton Baulenas
After eight years in exile, Sergeant Genis Aleu returns to the city of Barcelona bearing the mark of a man who has seen many battles - and who has one last mission ahead of him. A soldier in the infamous foreign legion, Aleu cuts a fearsome figure as he negotiates around the paranoid and suspicious citizens of Franco's Spain, single-mindedly trying to fulfil his father's dying wish.But beneath the gruff and gritty life of a legionnaire are echoes of Niso - Aleu as a young boy in a charity orphanage - and Niso's passionate devotion to his family, the ideals of his country, and the possibility of a better future.Now, as the people of Spain struggle to survive under the thumb of Fascist oppression, Aleu hurtles toward his own reckoning with the truth of war and the dangerous effects of living a lie.
