The Spanish Civil War : Reaction, Revolution and Revenge
Paul Preston is the world's foremost historian of Spain. This surging history recounts the struggles of the war in which more than 3, Americans took up arms.
Tracking the emergence of Francisco Franco's brutal and, ultimately, extraordinarily durable fascist dictatorship, Preston assesses the ways in which the Spanish Civil War presaged the Second World War that ensued so rapidly after it. The attempted social revolution in Spain awakened progressive hopes during the Depression, but the conflict quickly escalated into a new and horrific form of warfare.
As Preston shows, the unprecedented levels of brutality were burned into the American consciousness as never before by the revolutionary war reporting of Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Passos, Herbert Matthews, Vincent Sheean, Louis Fischer, and many others. Completely revised, including previously unseen material on Franco's treatment of women in wartime prisons, The Spanish Civil War is a classic work on this pivotal epoch in the twentieth century.
