9780006386940: Doves of War (Five Women of the Spanish Civil War)

Love, war, duty, faith, betrayal and belief - an alternative view of the Spanish Civil War through the eyes and experiences of the women who endured it. Here are the stories of four extraordinary women whose personal histories should dispel any illusions that the Spanish Civil War was an all-male war. Theirs are human dramas in which moral issues, right and wrong, Fascism and Communism, melt away.
