Comrade Andre Marty in For Whom the Bell Tolls

By Ernest Hemingway

Comrade Andre Marty

Also known as "The Crazy," Comrade Marty is a very well-known French Communist and the Commissar of the International Brigades (to which Robert Jordan belongs). He's turned bitter and paranoid after years of party struggles and thwarted ambition, and likes killing just about everyone he can get his hands on because he's convinced they're insubordinates. Real historical figure, by the way.
