Over 20 years after one of the most bitterly cruel civil wars in European history, the story of that war appears in English in this attempt to set down dispassionately what happened during those terrible years. Not only is such a book sorely neededMoreOver 20 years after one of the most bitterly cruel civil wars in European history, the story of that war appears in English in this attempt to set down dispassionately what happened during those terrible years.

Not only is such a book sorely needed as a document, but as a corrective against the sea of misinformation, myth & lie which has swelled up about the Spanish tragedy. How many times today do we hear that the war was Communist inspired or a part of the Communist plot of world domination. The author corrects this by carefully, explicitly, covering the origins of the war as they developed in the 20s & early 30s.

He discusses the fight between Carlists, syndicalists, socialists, liberals, Falangists, Communists, militarists & regional autonomy advocates, who continually tore the central Madrid government apart. He shows the liberal Azana as a figurehead, buffetted by forces & events around him, until, on that bloody July 1936 day, the shooting started. Then he recaptures the awful years after--Francos arrival with the Army of Africa, murder in the towns, the long siege of Madrid, loss of the Ebro & finally the sad fall of Barcelona in 1939.

This is an important book, one which serves history in the best sense. It will still arouse anger in many partisan quarters, perhaps with justification, but it remains still a must for students of politics & history.--Kirkus (edited)
