Product Description

From the Author

A good outline history of the International Brigades
My book outlines the causes of the Spanish Civil war and goes on to talk about the early militias which several 'Internationals' joined.Some of these formed the basis for the later International Brigades organised by the Comintern.All International Brigades and composite battalions are listed as far as is known together with information on their arms and equipment.This is followed by an outline of all the major battles in which the International Brigades fought. Illustrations include 'uniform',insignia and colours.Many previously unpublished photographs from the International Brigade Archive,London. The book is dedicated to these fighters against fascism. A bibliography guides the reader to other books on the subject.

A member of the Sealed Knot, he rose to the dizzy heights of becoming Colonel of the Earl of Stamford's Regiment of Foot (Parliamentary)!

First Sentence
The events leading up to the Spanish Civil War were very complex, but may be summed up by some simple statistics (quoted in the film To Die in Madrid). Read the first page

The plates were badly printed and it was obviously a second sold as a perfectly good new one. Be wary.

Well researched with battlefield visits and veteran interviews 10 Dec. 2013
By yeahright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I knew the author personally so I can confirm he took the utmost care in researching this book, including several visits to civil war battlefields and interviews with International Brigade veterans during the 1980's and 1990's. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a good general introduction to the subject, in a readable and visually appealing format.
Rifles, Uniforms, and Organizations... OH MY!!! 29 Jun. 2014
By James Henry Harrison Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I, personally, find few insurrections as fascinating as The Spanish Civil-War!
It was fought with such great heart, so little skill, for the most part, and with such a variety of weapons, one might well get lost in it.
This book is essential for the recognition of the many and varied units of "The International Brigades"... men and women who came from all parts of the world to save Spain's attempt at a viable democracy. There is little you won't know about the uniforms, weapons, and character of the men from these foreign countries. This is a well -informed and excellent guide to the daily grit of the war... from the Republic's side.
For the writer, the artist and game designer... the book is a marvelous reference.
It's a uniform book 8 Jan. 2014
By S. Martin Shelton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The art work in this book is not up to the standards I've seen in other books in this series. The text re the War is sparse and slanted. If you have detailed interest in the uniforms of this war this book is it..

By thuchidides - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very informative and good book on the international brigades. The drawings and pictures, along with the written descriptions, are a great aid to collectors and to those who are interested in military history and the Spanish civil war especially.
