This is the first English translation of Galdós' historical novel Gerona (1874), which recounts the savage atrocities perpetrated by the French armies against the Spanish citizenry during the Napoleonic Wars in Spain at the beginning of the 19th century.
"Gary Racz's translation succeeds in presenting to the American reader, with all its nuances, the complex and rich prose of one of the masters of European realism. . . " - Jose del Pino
