I dedicate this book to my
Comrades in France and Spain,
For we must try to rescue the
true face of the Revolution from
oblivion and legend;
This is necessary to purge
to obey the highest necessity more
not to ask it to justify
to better accomplish what
must be accomplished,
And so that man will be reborn
one day in every man.
