A fresh and acclaimed account of the Spanish Civil War.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Spanish Civil War’s outbreak, this completely updated and revised account of one of the most bitter and hard-fought wars of the twentieth century was published in 2006. With new material gleaned from the Russian archives and numerous other sources, this brisk and accessible book (Spain’s number 1 bestseller for twelve weeks), provides a balanced and penetrating perspective, explaining the tensions that led to this terrible overture to World War II and affording new insights into the war-its causes, course, and consequences.

An earlier version of this book was published by Orbis Publishing Ltd in 1982 under the title The Spanish Civil War.
