Uncertain Glory focuses on the most significant period in Catalonia’s 20th-century history, the Spanish Civil War. The novel describes the journey of four young people, from ‘the uncertain glory of an April day’, 14 April 1931, when the republic was proclaimed with flags, barricades and hope, to the desolation of the inglorious collapse of the Catalan front in 1938.
