Book Description:

The story of the Spanish Civil War, one of the most bitter armed struggles of the 20th Century, by the best-selling author of Stalingrad.

From the Back Cover:

FROM REVIEWS OF THE SPANISH 2005 EDITION WHICH RECEIVED THE LA VANGUARDIA PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION. ¿From the very first moment, Beevor recreates the political climate of the period. . . The structure of the book, the rhythm of the action, his insights on the characters, the white terror, the red terror, the revolution and the political infighting, the foreign intervention: all, despite belonging to that ¿other country¿, put us right back in the war amid the flames of those years. Yet it is in his account of the military operations that Beevor is at his most brilliant. . . . This book is destined for the first rank of general histories of the Civil War.¿ Santos Juliá in El País. ¿All in all, perhaps the best general work on the war to be published in the last decades.¿ Rafael Núñez Florencio in El Mundo ¿Beevor has surpassed the challenge he set himself with efficacy, rigour, soundness and clarity.¿ Xavier Casals in Clio ¿His narrative capacity, which has fascinated his readers since Stalingrad, is confirmed once again in this book, which will contribute, without doubt, to constructing the historical memory of the civil war which we need: a non-sectarian memory, broad and deep, which covers all sides of the miasma and which explores the reasons which led to to that sleep of the reason which was our last civil war.¿ Ricardo García Cárcel, ABC ¿The magnificent book of Antony Beevor on the Civil War, really using this time the Moscow archives and the recent bibliography of the war, shows how to explain the logic of the war.¿ Antonio Elorza in El País
