really liked it

A very detailed and well-documented book about what is usually called "the most bloody civil war". The author begins by relating the horrors that the "rebels", Franco and his right wing allies, had done . But when we read what the other party, the Republicans", did, we see what civil war is all about. The massacres were usual in both sides, with a vengeance that is strange among citizens of the same blood. And when Franco won the war, it is the dictum " woe to the vanquished!
Now, after democracy was instituted in Spain for a long time, one may wonder : Victory, where is thy glory !
