The narrator of the story, the author Hemingway himself, was there to explore the bridgehead and find out to what point the enemy forces had advanced. 
Earnest Hemingway was a war correspondent covering the Spanish Civil War. So he was there to collect the news about the progress of the Nationalist forces towards Ebro.
