This is an extremely painful book to read. However, it is a book that needs to be read in order to understand the scale of the cruelty that occurred during the war and for many years after. It is a chilling read for anyone who has ever been a member of a trade union, a freethinker, a democrat or married to one. It helps explain the years of silence and indeed the fragility of democracy in the post Franco era. It will leave a mark on you as I am sure the recording and the writing of it must have done to Paul Preston. A harrowing testament to the victims of the Spanish holocaust.
