[Answer] “For Whom the Bell Tolls” draws on Hemingway’s experience from what war?

…The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) pitted Spain’s Nationalists, led by Francisco Franco, against the Republican government. Hemingway traveled to Spain’s capital, Madrid, to cover the civil conflict in 1937, and wrote more than two dozen dispatches for the North American Newspaper Alliance. He even helped make a pro-Republican film called “The Spanish Earth.” “For Whom the Bell Tolls” is set during the conflict and tells the story of an American volunteer fighting in a Republican guerilla unit.
