This collection of hitherto unpublished and unedited reports, memos and jottings were sent to me by the indefatigable historian of the anti-Francoist guerrillas in Spain, Antonio Téllez (1921–2005), prior to his death. They were intended to provide the basis for his ongoing investigation into the treachery, malfeasance, chicanery, incompetence and litany of failures of the Toulouse-based executive committees of the Spanish Libertarian Movement in Exile (CNT-FAI-FIJL). There had been, he was convinced, treachery and betrayal on a grand scale that, from 1947 until the mid 1950s, had led to the arrest, torture, imprisonment, murder and execution of many brave men, including close friends of his, urban and rural guerrillas as well as CNT militants involved in clandestine propaganda, intelligence gathering and organisational work inside Spain. At the very least the reader comes away better informed about the existence of so many questions as to the roles of X, Y and Z, rather than being able to answer the serious questions raised; to actually identify the traitors and informers by name would require access to the Toulouse MLE-CNT archives, as well as to those of the French and Spanish police, intelligence and security services — an unlikely scenario. (Some of the questions raised by Téllez are, however, addressed in some detail in volume 3 of the novel ¡Pistoleros! The Chronicles of Farquhar McHarg.)
