Gerald Brenan - The Estate

Gerald Brenan joined the Army in 1914,  fought at the Somme and Passchendale, was twice wounded and awarded both the Military Cross and the Croix de Guerre.  In 1919 he moved to a remote village in the Sierra Nevada an experience he  described in South from Granada.  In 1931 he married the American poet Gamel Woolsey, with whom he lived near Malaga. During the Second World War he served in the Home Guard and also broadcast to Spain for the BBC. In 1943  Brenan published The Spanish Labyrinth, his classic study of the origins of the civil war.  He and Gamel revisited Spain in 1949, described in The Face of Spain, and returned to live there in 1953.  Brenan died in 1987 unrivalled as the most eminent English language writer on Spanish history and culture.
