About this title

Synopsis:

We discover what civil war, revolution and counter-revolution actually felt like from inside both camps. The contours of the war take shape through the words of the eyewitnesses. The atmosphere of events is vividly recaptured. And though the lived experience of the participants is revealed the uniquely tragic essence of all civil war. 'Fascinating and brilliantly unorthodox. ' Hugh Thomas, author of THE CONQUEST OF MEXICO.

Review:

"Traversing a scarred land that has endured everything and forgotten nothing, historian Ronald Fraser records the memories of survivors in this remarkable oral history... No other volume on the Spanish Civil War can surpass the power of this one." (Time)

"Fascinating and brilliantly unorthodox." (High Thomas)

"Fraser has stunningly captured the feel of the Spanish Civil War. It is as close to the truth as we'll ever get." (Studs Terkel)

"Moving and original...splendid and evocative." (New York Times Book Review)

"Just occasionally a great and important historical work appears that not only affects our understanding of the events it describes and analyses, but also significantly alters our attitude towards the historical process itself... A magnificent, monumental book, that is quite the most valuable addition to the vast library of books on the 1930s that has been published in the last decade." (Richard Gott Guardian)
