Though it is nearly seventy years since the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, it still remains a compelling subject surrounded by fierce controversy. Romero Salvadó offers an absorbing and vivid analysis of the origins, course and outcomes of the Spanish tragedy. Unravelling the myths that have distorted this fascinating topic, the Spanish conflict is examined as a watershed - the most brutal example of the crisis of modernity that polarized Europe in the inter-war years.
