This writer appears to be at least as literate as the second-term freshmen and second-year graduate students who, twenty-five years ago plus, taught me about "inwhich."  This is even scarier:

  2003 http://www.amazon.ca/Whom-Bell-Tolls-Ernest-Hemingway/dp/customer-reviews/0684803356?ie=UTF8&customer-reviews.start=31 :  For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway is a wonderful tale of a young American who has come to fight in the Spanish Civil War. Robert Jordan has come to fight for the Republican cause in the Spanish Civil War against the Fascists from being a Spanish professor in America. As an explosives expert, he is assigned the task to destroy an enemy bridge for an important offensive attack by the Republicans. He travels behind the lines and meets up with a Guerrilla band lead by a war weary veteran, Pablo, who is troubled by his bloody past. Also present at the camp is an escaped prisoner named Maria in which Robert falls in love with.
