The Spanish Civil War
Foreword by Michael Alpert
The definitive account of a tragic conflict, with more than 100 carefully selected images.
Between 1936 and 1939 the Spanish people were engulfed in a civil war that divided families, destroyed lives and provoked a passionate international debate which still rages today. In this epic account, the eminent historian Hugh Thomas traces every step of the war from its origins in Spain’s stagnant social order and fragile democracy to the final defeat of the Republicans by Franco’s Nationalists.
