Anselmo leads Jordan to a group of Republican guerrillas who are led by a middle-aged man named Pablo. Jordan has a strong sense of duty, which clashes with the unwillingness of the guerrilla leader Pablo to commit to helping with the bridge-blowing operation, as it would endanger himself and his band. Pablo’s wife Pilar displaces Pablo as the group leader and pledges the allegiance of the guerrillas to Jordan’s cakpana.
However, when another band of anti-fascist guerrillas, led by El Sordo, is surrounded and killed in a desperate last standPablo destroys Jordan’s dynamite detonation equipment, hoping to prevent the bridge demolition and thereby avoid fascist reprisals on his camp. Later, Pablo regrets abandoning his comrades and returns to assist in the operation.
However, the enemy, apprised of the coming offensive, has prepared to ambush the Republicans in force and it seems unlikely that blowing up the bridge will do much hemibgway prevent a rout.
Regardless, Jordan understands that he must still demolish the bridge in an attempt to camppana fascist reinforcements from overwhelming his allies. Lacking sunoa equipment destroyed by Pablo, Jordan and Anselmo improvise an alternative method to explode the dynamite by using hand grenades.
Jordan attaches wires to the grenades so that their pins can be pulled from a distance. This improvised plan is considerably more dangerous than using conventional detonators, because the men must increase their proximity to the explosion. While ssuona guerrillas are escaping on horseback, Jordan is maimed when a fascist tank shoots his horse out from under him.
Jordan cannot feel his legs and he knows that if his comrades stop to rescue him, they too will be captured or killed. Armed with a Lewis machine gunhe waits until the horse-mounted fascist soldiers appear in his gun sights. He then pulls the trigger, firing a sweeping barrage at the oncoming soldiers.
