The Spanish Civil War: Reaction, Revolution and Revenge
Harper Perennial, 2006 - 381 páginas
No modern conflict has inflamed the passions of both civilians and intellectuals as much as the Spanish Civil War of 1936âe"39. Burned into our collective historical consciousness, it not only prefigured the imminent Second World War but also ushered in a new and horrific form of warfare that would come to define the twentieth century. At the same time it echoed the revolutionary aspirations of millions of Europeans and Americans after the painful years of the Great Depression.
In this authoritative history, Paul Preston vividly recounts the political ideals and military horrors of the Spanish Civil War âe" including the controversial bombing of Guernica âe" and tracks the emergence of General Francoâe(tm)s brutal but extraordinarily durable fascist dictatorship.

Preston's treatise was praised by critics when it debuted in 1986. This edition has been revised and expanded with new info, including details on Franco's treatment of imprisoned women. One of the best books on the subject is now even better. Leer reseña completa
