    • This was an ok read. My first one on the Spanish Civil War. This book dealt more with personal history accounts which is good, but I was looking for an overall history of the war vice personal accounts. Just my preference.



    • This was my first narrative history of the Spanish Civil War. I am normally not a fan of narratives but this one is well done despite the age.


    • I bought this book in order to learn a topic that is mostly forgotten in European History today. I gave up halfway though the book, being such an awful piece of work.
