Very good book! It is so ironic that the democratically elected republic was ignored by the democracies of the world, France, Britain and the United States, in its struggle against Franco and fascism. Its only support came from the Soviet Union while Franco got support from Mussolini and Hitler.

Don't read this book unless you're a grad student in Spanish history. Actually, even then you might not want to read it. Incredibly long and overly detailed, doesn't get too much beyond the quotidian details within Spain itself (e.g. almost nothing on why so many people around the world came to Spain to fight in this struggle). I learned quite a bit about the Civil War here, but not enough of the details I really wanted to learn about.

Una fascinante versión de la trágica Guerra Civil española por un reconocido historiador e hispanista, Gabriel Jackson (1921). Ameno de leer, recomendado a cualquiera que le interese los peligros a que está expuesta cualquier democracia en épocas de turbulencia social.

Good on the Second Republic average on the Civil War. Written from a liberal pro-Republic perspective.
