Ernest Hemingway In His Time

For Whom the Bell Tolls

Hemingway's four separate tours as a correspondent during the Spanish Civil War provided material for his second major war novel, For Whom the Bell Tolls. The book was widely translated, and like several of his earlier novels, For Whom the Bell Tolls was made into a popular film featuring leading stars of the day.
